Guidelines for Clinical Supervisors of Therapists who Work with Complex Trauma and Dissociation
Clinical supervision is a key component of professional and ethical practice. The pace of clinical and research insights relating to complex trauma is such that even clinical supervisors conversant with the field can find it hard to keep up. Clinical supervisors who are less aware of the many faces of complex trauma, and who are otherwise competent and experienced in supporting their clinical supervisees, will find the following guidelines
The following guidelines are in two parts:
The first section (Part A: `Knowledge Base’) presents core principles of which clinical supervisors of therapists who work with complex trauma and dissociation need to be aware.
The second section (Part B: `Skill Base’) addresses application of the principles presented in Part 1. Necessarily there is some overlap between the two sections.
Appendices which summarise key features of complex trauma and dissociation (Appendix 1) and principles of self-care (Appendix 2) are also provided.
Clinical supervisors of therapists and health professionals who work with complex trauma are strongly advised to read the guidelines in conjunction with the other guidelines released by Blue Knot Foundation.
