Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle

Abstract

This article aims to provide an overview of cognitive therapy supervision within the context of psychotherapy-based supervision. Following a brief discussion of the literature emphasizing the importance of the supervisory alliance, therapist development, and improvement for clients, a further focus is a series of formative conversations during cognitive therapy supervision informing treatment of a young person with low mood within the interpersonal context. The article focuses on the transfer of the content of these discussions to therapy as well as the supervisee’s assumptions which could potentially impact on treatment outcome. The outcome of the therapy is summarized and the article concludes with details regarding the supervisor’s own thoughts and feelings, decision-making processes and planning within the supervisory relationship.
