Guidance for novice cognitive behaviour therapy supervisors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The recent much needed increase in the provision of
evidenced-based psychological interventions, such as
cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), has created
a demand for suitably trained and competent CBT
supervisors in the UK. Simple training for this role
is inadequate, so novice supervisors should also
consider working with an experienced supervisor,
having their supervision practice observed and
seeking regular feedback on their supervisor
competence. This encourages self-reflection and
builds competence in supervision, which can lead to
formal accreditation with the British Association for
Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
