Art Therapy Supervision Training: 2020 Level 6 Accredited Diploma

07 June 2019

Supervision is, for all clinicians, the bedrock of good and safe practice…

For art therapists, the value of supervision has been embedded from the beginning of our profession.  However, the changing employment and legislative contexts have impacted on supervision: what should a supervisor know in order to provide good, effective and safe supervision?  How can a supervisor support their supervisees within chaotic organisations and help prevent burnout?  What constitutes good practice innovations? How can concerns be picked up and addressed?

 
This intensive theoretically-informed and practice-based course will equip learners with the knowledge and skills required to provide effective, inspiring, ethical and evidence-based supervision to a range of supervisees. Art-based processes in supervision will feature prominently in the curriculum and include techniques and exercises on art-making within supervision.

 

 
Module 1 to 2:
