Group supervision in cognitive behavioral therapy: Theoretical frameworks and praxis



Supervision can be individual or group. There is a high need for supervision for the therapist's development. A group setting allows the supervision of more therapists with the benefit of using group dynamics to enhance the therapists' growth. It helps therapists perceive the client's story and treatment from multiple perspectives. Original group CBTsupervision was performed as individual supervision of the supervisee in front of the group. Modern concepts involve the whole group in the supervisory process, which takes advantage of the diversity of views and experience and allows interactions between the group members in the supervision. The group members are invited for role-playing, skills training, imagery rescripting with the protagonist, etc. The research on group cognitive behavioural supervision has only recently started developing.
