Description of the qualification including the course aims and objectives.

What will I learn?

This intensive theory-informed and practice-based course will equip learners with the knowledge and skills required to provide effective, inspiring, ethical, and art-based supervision to supervisees from arts therapies and related professions (arts in health, counselling, psychotherapy, etc.). Art-based processes in supervision will feature prominently in the curriculum and include techniques and exercises on artmaking within supervision. Participants will also be required to use visual diaries as part of their learning process. Understanding implications of the legal framework as well as organisational dynamics and their impact on supervision will be an integral part of the course. The training will also focus on enabling participants to become research-aware supervisors and to learn how to evaluate the efficacy of their supervisory work.

Overseas applicants with suitable experience who wish to specialise in this area are also welcome to apply.
