Providing Good Clinical Supervision is a 2-day clinical supervision training course from APT, a leading independent provider of training in mental health and related areas. We bring this APT-Accredited course to your own organization and train a group of 6-15 people. (Live webinar also available.)
Clinical supervision is a key concept that many people are unclear about. Unclear whether 'supervision' means that you should be ensuring that the supervisee is 'doing it right' or whether you should be providing a sounding board for the supervisee to develop their clinical thinking, or what. And many people are equally unsure about exactly what their professional body has to say about it, and where to find that out.
This course is designed to clear up all of the above by looking at the current models of supervision, what the professional bodies say about it, and more. The 'more' consists predominantly of learning how to do it, or learning to do it better. The aim is, therefore, that by the end of the 2 days you will both (a) know about clinical supervision and (b) be good at providing it.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 100,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.
Option 1: Live webinar:
This course can be provided as a live webinar for groups and individuals. A webinar typically takes slightly less time than the live course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) but they have equivalence in accreditation and are live and pleasingly interactive.
Delegates can be anywhere that is conducive to concentrating, all together or separate, so long as they have access to a computer with a good internet connection.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':
If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organization, under license.
This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organization the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the Providing Good Clinical Supervision course has received.
“Just about everything has been of benefit to me as a supervisor (and supervisee). I would recommend this course unreservedly.”
"An exceptionally well delivered course which was wonderfully facilitated by the tutor. Depth and breadth of information that I will be able to take forward and introduce within my own occupational environment. Thank you, a great and valuable course."
