The role of the Clinical Supervisor will become even more important with ‘Right Touch’ regulation. This course will enable you to leverage your play therapy experience to help many more children by advising and supporting other practitioners through clinical supervision to maintain high standards of practice.
PTI/PTUK accredited training courses are now run at 10 venues in the UK, 3 in Ireland, 1 in France and in 6 other countries, producing a stream of Play/Creative Arts Therapists who require clinical supervision. This course is designed to help to fill the shortage of suitably trained supervisors. Becoming a Certified Clinical Supervisor is also an essential step on the way to becoming a PTUK Certified Play Therapy Trainer. Both of these career opportunities will provide extra job satisfaction and additional income.
The course is designed for those who have at least 200 hours experience of working with children or adolescents using play/creative arts therapy as well as experienced, accredited counsellors. It includes:
A model for the supervision of play and creative arts therapies
Using creative arts for supervision
Using the Play Therapy Dimension Model for supervision
Supervisees’ training requirements
Dealing with supervisees’ career development issues
