Learning and Teaching

Teaching and learning methods

Clinical supervision is usually run in small groups of up to three students. You will be working in a clinical setting where you can access suitable training cases. You will bring two cases to supervision and we strongly encourage you see additional cases supervised in your clinical service. You will need equipment to video record therapy sessions, and bring excerpts to each supervision session, to illustrate specific supervision questions.
