FTTN Supervisors

Supervision Course

The Family and Systemic Psychotherapy Supervision Course aims to provide a rigorous but flexible training programme, which fits the needs of course participants and the requirements of the Association of Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (AFT)’s Red Book on supervision training.

The training days will have a mixture of theory, application of theory to practice, skills development and presentation of trainees work. The emphasis is on supervision but it is intended that participants will gain skills as trainers and providers of professional consultation.

The course aims to train family and systemic psychotherapy supervisors who are able to;

  • Supervise the clinical work of those people training for qualified family therapy status on an accredited course.
  • Provide supervision to qualified family therapists as part of their continuing professional development (as described in UKCP registration criteria).
  • Provide supervision of teams and staff working with families and networks or individuals wishing to work with a systemic orientation.
