Experienced consultants will support your endeavours with clear lines of responsibility and consultation available when required. A weekly intake meeting provides an opportunity to discuss problems encountered with patients or systems. Individual supervision will be tailored to meet your training needs. Further, working in the programme will provide you with an opportunity to enhance your psychotherapeutic skills through involvement in individual, group and family psychotherapy. Individual psychotherapy supervision may be arranged. Combining work in the unit with further psychotherapy training may appeal to advanced trainees.
