Course Description

Participants will work to improve their skills as IPT supervisors.  Our goal is to create and sustain a community of colleagues devoted to supporting each other as learners and supervisors.

The course is specifically designed to include BOTH didactic and experiential training.  Participants will have weekly assignments and will be required to present IPT cases and to practice supervising as part of this training.  We will emphasize developing reliability in rating IPT audio and videotape, and understanding and applying the supervision curriculum as well as improving specific supervision skills.  The course will also provide on-going community following the formal conclusion of the eight weeks of training, with mentoring and peer support both informally and at regular monthly meetings throughout the year.

Interested participants must apply for this course.  Clinicians who have completed Level C training or equivalent may apply.  

Upon completion of this course, participants will have the opportunity to co-lead supervision groups through the IPT Institute.

All class sessions will be in two hour blocks every week on Fridays from 10 AM to noon Central Daylight Time.  Please be SURE that you have the correct time for your home location when you register.
