Supervision Training 2025 for Creative Arts Therapists | Jan – Jun 2025 | Now Booking

supervision training

This is 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. 

Thank you so much for such a wonderful course, I really enjoyed it, and it has built my confidence in being a Supervisor. The course was brilliantly structured and had a great flow.” Harri Nicholas, Art therapist

I really enjoyed the course which has injected new life into my Art Therapy practice and has given me a new confidence and self-belief. You were always warm, playful, attentive and thoughtful in your approach and you communicated so well as did the guest speakers. It was a course that filled me with a bit of trepidation but once we got started I found it very informative, intellectually stimulating, challenging and fun.P. Art therapist

I found this course enjoyable, thought-provoking and stimulating. It made me think in new ways about my clinical work with patients as much as my supervision practice. I enjoyed being able to express ideas and concepts through my own medium of music. The course provided a great opportunity to share with and learn from others in an environment where our trust in each other was able to grow so that we gradually felt able to share more about ourselves and our work. Thank you for organising and hosting such a valuable course.Catherine Richards, Music therapist

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.
