Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Supervision: Integrating Practical Skills with a Conceptual Framework

Go Back


Supervision in CBT is conceptually and procedurally complex: most of us learn to supervise by imitation or by trial and error. As a result, there is much implicit knowledge, several procedural accounts, but few explicit formulations. In the absence of such formulations our ability to consistently replicate best supervisory practice is limited.

Through a series of workshops at the Newcastle CBT Centre, we tapped into the implicit knowledge of experienced and less experienced supervisors and we developed a conceptual map of CBT supervision: how to build supervisory alliance, respond to supervisee’s needs, develop helpful supervision contracts and maximise the beneficial effects of supervision. For the past 15 years, this model has been used in a wide range of clinical services, and several hundred supervisors have been trained. The workshop will introduce the key features of the model, interweaved with live supervision to illustrate the practical skills.
