BAAT is delighted to announce that recruitment for the next cohort of its certificated supervision training will open in May 2020.  The course will start in January 2021.  The training can be done as a one-year full-time or two-year part-time course with external certification at Level 6 Diploma by CPCAB (the CPCAB validates the BAAT Working with Children in Arts Therapy Diploma).

This intensive theoretically-informed and practice-based course will equip learners with the knowledge and skills required to provide effective, creative, ethical and evidence-based supervision to a range of supervisees. Art-based processes in supervision will feature prominently in the curriculum.  Applications are welcome from all arts therapists as well as from suitably qualified professionals who use art within their supervisory practice or supervise art therapists or arts in health practitioners as part of their work.

The training will consist of one introductory module of two days, followed by eleven monthly one- day modules which will run on Tuesdays from 10am to 6pm at BAAT, 24 – 27 White Lion Street, London, N1 9PD.
