About this training

This training consists of three one-day trainings that are now a required part of the DIT supervisor qualification, in addition to the two post-qualification DIT supervised cases and six hours of consultation of your supervision.

The three days will introduce general teaching on psychodynamic supervision as well as focus on particular challenges of supervision within the DIT model.

The focus will include discussion of the general competencies for psychodynamic supervision including parallel processes in supervision and managing a supervision group; managing risk in supervision of DIT, evaluation components in DIT supervision and how to give feedback to supervisees; the appropriate DIT supervisory stance; working with remote supervision; issues of GDPR and ethics in supervision; managing dual roles of evaluation and skills development, common difficulties encountered in DIT supervision and how to overcome these, and providing a forum for supervisors to share their concerns, resources and support one another while also ensuring greater coherence and consistency across DIT supervisors.    

Participants are required to take turns to present their supervisory work as part of the learning objectives of the course.

Aims of the training

  • To teach/consolidate psychodynamic supervision skills within the DIT model

  • To bring DIT supervisors up to date with developments in DIT and refine concepts in the model

  • To provide a supportive clinical forum for shared supervisory concerns

  • To ensure there is a shared set of standards and consistency across DIT supervisors
