Mastering any approach to counselling and psychotherapy requires on-going supervision and personal feedback. As a follow-on to our four-weekend ACT workshop programme we invite you to complete our ACT training programme with monthly supervision. In this way you can thoroughly consolidate your ACT knowledge and skills with regular clinical practice.
Our supervision programme will include
- Case formulation for your clients
- Use of the 60 ACT competencies form to monitor progress and pin point areas of your practice to improve
- Live roleplays with another group member to (which can) provide opportunities for immediate feedback on your consistency and fluency in ACT processes.
This programme is primarily for improving your ACT competencies and does not constitute full clinical supervision for your whole client load. It can be used towards some of your required supervision for accreditation, but is not sufficient to be your only source of supervision for your general counselling practice. If you are starting to practice as a therapist you will require your own one on one supervisor in addition.
Participants are not required to present clients at every meeting. The purpose of the groups is to perpetuate and develop your knowledge into your practice. To remain ACT-consistent we find ways of keeping the meetings experiential. Just discussing cases can have a mind-y feel. That is, we do live coaching role plays during the meetings. You can do this on your own material, or you can give a brief session to one of the other members of the group. Another benefit of these meetings is learning from the other group member’s struggles and cases. These meetings are a continuation of the weekend skills training workshops.
