Becoming a Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy supervisor

Dynamic interpersonal therapy (DIT) practitioners can avail of a unique opportunity with Anna Freud to enhance their professional development by becoming a qualified DIT supervisor. 

Candidates receive specialist teaching and supervision in both individual and group DIT supervision, providing the requisite knowledge and skills needed to facilitate supervision of DIT trainees and qualified DIT practitioners. Successful DIT supervisors will be awarded a recognised qualification which can be used in a variety of work settings. Furthermore, qualified DIT supervisors will have access to ongoing CPD events and will join a network of DIT supervisors in providing a high standard of supervisory practice to a growing global community of DIT clinicians.

Becoming a supervisor requires a good working knowledge of the DIT approach, which is usually gained by seeing a few DIT cases post-qualification to consolidate the model. Applicants must have at least one year’s general supervision experience of high intensity Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) work (or equivalent for those not working in an IAPT setting) that demonstrates their ability to apply generic and specific supervision competencies. Please refer to the on the UCL website.

To apply, please submit to DIT@annafreud.org:

  • a letter of support from an accredited DIT supervisor who has experience of your clinical work

  • a letter of support from your line manager who is familiar with your supervision experience.

Supervisor training can start once funding has been approved and you have an allocated supervisor for the additional two clinical cases.
