Supervision Training for Creative Arts Therapists 2024

supervision training

This will be the 8th year since we ran the first 6-month long Supervision Training and Professional Development course for Arts Therapists including: Art Psychotherapists, Integrative Arts Therapists, Drama, Music, Movement, Dance and Play Therapists.

Arts therapists may be required to supervise trainees and the newly qualified based on their own experiences without having attended a specific or extended training in clinical supervision. This training course introduces principles and approaches used in clinical supervision in order to deepen your practice and offer effective supervision.

Course Description

A range of senior practitioners and educators will present theories of supervision and practice, integrative arts therapy approaches, live supervision skills, core reading and critical literature reviews. Working from the macro to the micro and back to the overview of clinical responsibility, our aim is to support you in professional development and clinical management in supervision.

The theory, practice approaches and experiential material will be delivered through the use of interactive discussions, art-making, reflection and creative action methods.

The course is 30 hours of CPD spread over a 6-month period, one Saturday per month ONLINE. 

Course Approach

This course uses an integrative creative arts therapy model informed by a wide range of creative and expressive arts therapy modalities. The theoretical framework is psychodynamic and integrative with a strong commitment to the creative and relationship dynamic at the heart of the clinical and supervisory work.

Trainers: Hephzibah Kaplan and guest supervisors. Each afternoon session we have a guest supervisor who shares their perspective and experience.
