Creative Arts Supervision Training Diploma
The CAST training course, recognised by the British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth) will appeal to Arts therapists, psychotherapists, counsellors, play therapists and dance movement therapists who are seeking a supervision training that offers a sound theoretical base and a unique combination of experiential and theoretical modules to fully support the creative approach to supervision.
Regular supervision is a requirement of the Health and Social Care Professions (HCPC), BADth and all counselling and therapy professional bodies. Its function is to provide an objective overview of the dynamics present in the therapy relationship. Supervision monitors ethical standards and practice and encourages professional development.
CAST is a long established supervision training designed by a dynamic team of HCPC registered creative therapists and supervisors with many successful cohorts following it’s opening in 1998. 2018 saw this innovative and popular course move to Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
The programme is delivered over one year with 120 contact hours and is designed to allow time for reflection and integration. Learners are required to be in personal therapy for the duration of the training.
On completion of the course you should expect to:
• attain the experiential and theoretical tools necessary to work as a clinical supervisor
• develop confidence to utilize creative methods within a supervisory relationship.
• gain the experience, skills and guidance to enable you to set up a supervision practice.
