Course Description

The IPT Institute supervisor course is open only to clinicians who have completed Level A training and supervision in IPT.  Admission to the course is by application only.

The course consists of two separate tracks:

1) General Supervision Track

2) IPT Level D Certification Track

Both tracks include BOTH didactic and experiential training.  The course will also provide opportunities for continuing mentoring and peer support both informally and at regular monthly meetings throughout the year. Our goal is to create and sustain a community of colleagues devoted to supporting each other as learners and supervisors. 

The General Supervision Track will cover theories of supervision and practical supervision techniques.  We will rely heavily on role-playing, observation, and discussion during the course.

The IPT Level D Certification Track is the first step in becoming an IPT Institute certified supervisor.  In addition to the information in the General instruction, the Level D track will cover specific IPT supervision skills, reliability of ratings of portfolios, and the use of the IPT Institute Learning Management System for use with supervisees.  The complete requirements for Level D Certification are listed here: CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS.  Participants in the Level D Certification Track are required to have completed IPT Institute Certified Training Levels A, B, and C.  Participants in this track are also required to have a videotape of a real or simulated supervision session or IPT therapy session to show during the training (please ensure you have appropriate permission to use any recordings for this purpose and ask us for guidance if you are not clear about this requirement).


Both class sessions will be in four-hour blocks November 20 and 21 from 10:00 AM to 14:00 PM noon Central Standard Time (Chicago).  Please be SURE that you have the correct time for your home location when you apply.


 Cost for the course (both tracks) is $250 USD.  
 Enrollment is limited– please apply early.
