Foundations of Supervisory Practice - Level 7 - 7CL521

About this module

This module aims to examine a wide range of theories in regard to clinical supervision. It examines both theories and models developed specifically within various counselling/psychotherapy approaches, as well as models developed that transcend therapeutic modality.

The module will also examine the relationship between educational theory and supervision theories and ethical practice. These various models and theories will be examined through the lens of the therapist/ supervisor relationship.
