IICP College: Professional Diploma in Integrative Supervision


Professional Diploma in Integrative Supervision

IICP College is now taking enrolments for our June 2023 Diploma in Integrative Supervision. This course will be of interest to professionals who work in an integrative manner. It will be of particular interest to counsellors, psychotherapists, guidance counsellors, psychologists, healthcare professionals, probation officers, social services personnel, managers, and all who supervise the work of others in the helping professions.


Supervision is viewed as a key component of many professions in the provision of support to practitioners, enhancement of ongoing learning, and, to a greater or lesser extent, it offers some protection to the public. This year-long course is intended for people from a variety of disciplines who are intending, beginning, or already practising supervisors. Professionally accredited by IACP, this course is designed to enable individuals to extend their understanding and knowledge of supervision, incorporating theoretical inputs with opportunities for group discussion and experiential exercises.

Programme Objectives:

  • To prepare mental health professionals to provide clinical supervision to those working directly with directly health professions.

Course Structure:

This is a part-time course, with 13 full teaching days (9:00am-5:00pm) delivered between June 2023 – October 2023, with additional time afforded to learners to attain the clinical supervision hours requirements, and self-directed learning.

Module Descriptors:

  • Definitions and purpose of supervision.
  • Models of the supervisory process will be explored including those of Page and Wosket and Hawkins and Shohet.
  • Learning Styles.
  • Consideration of the training development and supervisory needs of supervisors.
  • Opportunities to role-play in triads as supervisor, supervisee, and observer, using participants’ own case work.
  • Exploration of transference, countertransference, and the parallel process.
  • Reflection on the similarities and differences of supervision in a one-to-one, group or organisational context.
  • Consideration of Multicultural, Ethical and Professional issues. Introduction into Counselling and Psychotherapy

Online/Blended Learning Delivery

The programme is blended learning. It rotates between online and onsite teaching inputs. Onsite classes are delivered in our Tallaght Campus, and our online classes are run as tutorials that involve students and their lecturer logging into our online portal Zoom™ simultaneously.

Our blended learning classes are run as tutorials, that involve students and their lecturer logging into our online learning platform Moodle and use the online portal Zoom™ simultaneously.

Zoom™ provides and integrative online environment for students and Lecturers to interact and engage in the learning. This platform facilitates discussion polls, sharing of slides, videos resources and much, much more.

To foster more intimate learning environments the use of breakout rooms is also implemented, allowing for the safe and experiential triadic learning practice that we have found so successful.

All our sessions are accessible through computer and mobile devices, and we have a structured and robust technology department to support all faculty and students through their learning journey. To encourage flexibility, and best practice, we also record all our sessions, these are made accessible only to the students in that class to review content whenever is convenient to them!

Award: Our Diploma in Integrative Supervision is professionally accredited by the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP)
