About the training

Applicants for the training are expected to be experienced supervisors already so the didactic part of the training is conducted over one day with emphasis placed on supervising within an IAPT context and on reinforcing CTfD practice, including the ability to assess practitioners’ competencies in the modality. The practice element of the training involves weekly peer-supervision sessions over 6 months:
1 x Couple Therapy for Depression training case (to embed the model) which will be supervised by TR supervisor (6 group supervisions) and formulation session rated by TR supervisor
1 x CTfD supervisee with 1 training case within their own service.  (There needs to be flexibility to extend this to two training cases, in consultation with TR/supervisor). Sessions need to be taped to enable trainee supervisor to rate two submitted tapes against CTfD competencies and then receive consultation of supervision from TR supervisor (6 sessions).  (CTfD supervisee within supervisor’s own service would need to agree to tape sessions).
