Learning and Teaching

Teaching and learning methods

The main teaching and learning activity is clinical supervision, usually in small groups of up to three students. You must work in a clinical setting where you can access suitable cases for treatment. We require you to bring two cases to supervision and we strongly encourage you see additional cases who are being supervised in your clinical service. You will need to bring a live excerpt of therapy to each supervision session, to accompany a specific supervision question that you wish to discuss. Supervisors will use a variety of methods to facilitate your development of therapeutic competencies including discussion, demonstration, role play, and homework exercises. Theory/practice links will be made. Other related teaching and learning activities include observation of other accredited therapists and availability of multi-media resources.
