Professional Certificate_ Existential Supervision & Group Leadership
The philosophy of this programme is existential, which means that the focus of students’ practical work will be on understanding the human predicaments of their clients in a philosophical way. It draws on the work of existential and phenomenological thinkers and on the practice of existential psychotherapy.
The final dissertation will therefore include a discursive, philosophical element and the research will usually be based on phenomenological enquiry.
The course has been accredited by the British Psychological Society as a CPD course and chartered counselling psychologists who complete it are eligible to apply for accreditation by the BPS as a psychologist supervisor with the BPS. It also leads to part fulfillment of the supervisor accreditation by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
The course consists of three separate modules:
- Module 1 Existential Group training
- Module 2 Existential Supervision training
- Module 3 Existential Leadership training
The first two of these are offered as five day intensives and the third as a two day intensive. Each module can be taken independently and a certificate of attendance is given after the assignment for the course has been passed. Successful completion of the three modules leads to the full NSPC Professional Certificate in Existential Supervision and Group Leadership. The first two modules are also occasionally offered on a weekly basis on Wednesday afternoons as well as on an intensive basis.
All three modules are an intrinsic part of the NSPC professional doctoral programmes and may be credited towards these in due course.
