About the Supervision SIG

The role of supervision in the dissemination and maintenance of high quality CBT practice cannot be underestimated.

Over recent years, increasing attention has been paid to the core elements of effective CBT supervision, and a number of models have been developed. A strong evidence base for any specific model has yet to emerge however.

Opportunities for training in supervision are increasing, although the availability of specialist workshops and CPD events with a supervision focus remain small, when compared with the number of CBT practice events. It is also interesting to note that a 'Supervision' category has yet to emerge at conference.

With some of these issues in mind, a number of people with a particular interest in supervision have come together to form a new BABCP SIG. We are delighted to announce that Supervision Sig came into existence in early 2014.

In time we hope the group can become a peer-resourced network. Please visit us at our open meeting at BABCP conference or contact us via the website to find out more.
