Intensive case supervisors professional development course
47 Nelson Square
This course offers senior child and adolescent psychotherapists the chance to develop their skills and learning and become IPCAPA approved intensive case supervisors to our future trainees.
IPCAPA is dedicated to the ongoing development of their trainee child psychotherapists who have a challenging four year clinical placement in an NHS setting within which they learn many aspects of becoming a child psychotherapist. Together with their personal analysis and service supervision, the intensive case supervisor has the vital responsibility for facilitating their growth and learning throughout the four years and IPCAPA is committed to enabling our intensive case supervisors to develop in this crucial role.
The main aim of this course is for the participants to get more information and develop the skills and confidence to provide the learning from the intensive cases that trainees are required to undertake within their training. Intensive case supervisors help trainees learn from an intensive case, supervising the trainee’s understanding of the clinical material, discussing the technical issues and making appropriate links to psychoanalytic theory.

The British Psychotherapy Foundation (bpf) is one of the largest psychotherapy membership and training organisations in Europe. We are also a charity. Our approach is based on the rich tradition of psychoanalytic and jungian theory and practice, while also drawing on scientific advances in our understanding of the human mind and development.
