Sign Petition

To include HCPC registered art therapist and music therapist supervisors as suitable practitioners to give the 40 hour post qualifying supervision.

17 Signatures Goal: 330

Hi there, as a newly qualified dramatherapist I have been attending supervision since I graduated in 2010 as I started working fairly soon after graduating this means I have accumulated around 80 hours of high quality supervision. However the supervisor I work with is an art psychotherapist which currently means that it cannot count towards my post-qualifying supervision to gain my private practice status, as Badth state that it must be from a registered dramatherapist.  I know I'm not alone in this situation and I feel very strongly that as part of the creative therapies we as dramatherapists should be including other creative therapist supervisors within this remit to practice privately. In this current economic climate when work is so much harder to come by we should be looking at ways to create more opportunities for work, whilst working always with best practice at the fore. It appears that newly qualified art therapists can have supervision from other types of supervisor and when I asked BAAT about the limitation dramatherapists have imposed on them they informed me that they saw it as an "impossible stipulation to meet." I feel very strongly that post qualifying supervision hours are essential before private practice but I feel that the requirement for this to be solely from a dramatherapist is wrong. I believe we limit the growth of our profession by working in this way and supervision is such an amazing opportunity to gain new skills and ideas which we can adapt and develop into our practice and continue to move the profession forward. Please sign the petition if you agree and I will submit the petition to Badth in an effort to create some change.
