Certificate & Diploma in Counselling Supervision
Starting 9th September 2019
Trainers: Barbara Clarkson TSTA
Cost: Diploma fee £850 (3 taught modules).
Certificate fee £800 (2 taught modules).
This course has received Advanced Specialist Training recognition by the National Counselling Society
The Certificate in Supervision course will be delivered over 6 days of highly interactive and experiential training, one day per month. The certificate course will run at the Ellesmere Centre in Hull, with the trainers sharing the delivery between them. Completion of a further 3 day theoretical module plus evidence of specific supervised practice can lead to the award of the Diploma in Supervision.
Applicants must have a Diploma in Counselling or equivalent minimum level of counselling/psychotherapy training, have completed at least 450 hours of practice as a counsellor or psychotherapist, and be in ongoing supervision for their clinical practice. A basic knowledge of Transactional Analysis would be an advantage, for example attendance at a TA101 or similar.
In addition, applicants will be expected to identify the placement setting where they will acquire the 18 hours of supervised supervision required for the Certificate award (24 in total for the Diploma), and will have a “supervision of supervision” contract in place with a suitable supervisor, before commencing the training.
For both awards, the supervisor of supervision will be asked to complete an end of year report. A sample extract (2-3 pages) from the student’s reflective learning journal should also be submitted.
Transcript analysis – Complete 2 transcripts of 5 minute excerpts of live supervision from your practice, including appropriate “front sheet” information, a commentary, and a 500 word analysis of the work done in each, referring to supervision theory.
Essay (3000 words) – Outline and critically evaluate your philosophy of supervision, including underpinning theories and models, and the ethical framework within which you practice
*Reflective practice assignment (2000 words) – Reflect and critique your experience of working with models of group supervision, comparing it with individual supervision in terms of process and effectiveness.
*Case study (3000 words) – Describe and critically evaluate your chosen models of supervision using 2 case studies from your practice.
