Continuing Professional Development Masterclass

Resilience-Based Clinical Supervision

Resilience Based Clinical Supervision (RBCS) is underpinned by compassion focused therapy which explicitly focuses on the way in which emotions motivate our response to a situation and how we can learn strategies to mediate this response to achieve a desired outcome. The sessions aim to enable members to develop competencies, which facilitate their self-care and promote the flow of compassion to themselves and consequently others. The recognition of the external influences on individual wellbeing is emphasised to analyse how the personal, relational and organisational factors contribute.   


To increase awareness of the theory behind Resilience Based Clinical Supervision and provide the skills to facilitate supervision underpinned by the model.

 “Well facilitated training. Great to experience the model as a group which helped me to make connections with how it could be used in practice.
