How to train as a Family Law supervisor:
If you are interested in training as a family law supervisor you have come to the right place. The Association of Family Law Supervisors (AFLS) is a group of professionals who have trained through FLiP Faculty www.flipfaculty.org
There are two routes to becoming a member of the (AFLS):
If you are a trained supervisor within your own professional discipline (e.g. UKCP or BACP) then FLiP Faculty offer a two day training specifically aimed at the family law market. Details can be found here:
If you are a family lawyer or other professional in the helping professions but not yet a supervisor then FLiP Faculty run a 6-day training programme (3 sets of 2 days) over the course of 12-15 months. This training includes the requirement that after the first 2 days of the course you will get a “guinea pig” supervisee on who to try out your skills and also undergo one-to-one supervision of the supervision you do. You will be expected to maintain a record of at least 10 hours worth of supervision over the period which will have o be submitted at the end of the course. In addition, at the end of the training there will be a piece of reflective written work and an interview with your course supervisor. Details of the next course can be found here:
There are no guarantees that undertaking the course will result in delegates successfully passing it but those delegates who are successful will receive a Diploma in Family Law Supervision.
