Active Supervision Methods - 16th March 2018

Active Supervision Methods Workshop



Active supervision methods: a conceptual and practical guide to effective CBT clinical supervision

Presenter: Mark Latham

16th March 2018


Detailed Description

Active supervision methods: a conceptual and practical guide to effective CBT clinical supervision

The use of active learning methods in CBT clinical supervision is widely advocated, and yet the evidence suggests they are rarely used in practice. Role-play, modeling, self-practice/self-reflection (SP/SR), and observation of clinical material via video or audio recordings are all used on CBT training programmes in the UK. However, most CBT clinical supervision post-qualification tends to rely heavily, or even exclusively, on case discussion, at the expense of more active methods.

The workshop will start off by conceptualising possible reasons why active methods are often under-used and will then go on to examine the advantages of using them from both a theoretical and practical perspective. It will help participants explore potential ways of increasing their use of active methods in CBT supervision.

Supervisors and supervisees alike should find the workshop relevant to their current and future CBT supervisory practice.

Intended learning outcomes:

By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
• Reflect on some of the theoretical and practical advantages of active supervisory methods
• Conceptualise reasons why active methods are under-used in supervision
• Construct personal action plans to increase use of active methods
• Utilise a range of active methods in supervision
