Supervision intensive is intended for all those who have completed the four-year programme of the School within the Centre for Integrative Development, and have chosen to work as professional therapists. It is aimed at practitioners holding the CID diplomas, who undoubtedly see themselves now, as well as in the future, as the CID integrative therapists, with a clear intention to build, expand or complement their professional practice. For the same reason, this intensive could also be attended by the CID students in their 3rd or 4th year of training.
Supervision intensives represent an unavoidable requirement for continuous development within one’s own therapy practice. Therefore, attending at least one supervision intensive per year, together with a regular individual supervision, is a requirement to be met in order to acquire a recommendation of the Centre for Integrative Development for a therapist with a renewed licence.
Unlike the individual supervision where the therapist and his/her supervisor deal with some specific issues arising from practical work with clients, supervision intensives are focused on the wider methodological and theoretical aspects, including a development of one’s own style in therapy. They also represent a platform for additional professional development, research, and ability to practice the existing and new methods of work.
Within the methodology of work, the intensive is carried out by applying the methods of body-oriented therapy, including the individual and group process work. Along with the theoretical aspect, the intensive is based on the experiential work of the therapists-participants.
Supervision intensives take place two times per year in duration of 3 days (Friday-Sunday).
The three-day supervision intensives are accepted as substitutes for 2 sessions of individual supervision.
