MOU? It's about me and you - supervisors

This online event will develop your supervision and practice to engage with the Memorandum of Understanding on ‘Conversion Therapy’ 2017

About this event

Would you recognise when issues around conversion therapy may have some bearing on your supervisee’s case? This transformative webinar will explain how the Memorandum of Understanding on ‘Conversion Therapy’ 2017 affects everyone and will give you the support and resources to end abusive therapy. Be part of the movement to open up our rich diversity of practice to the infinite spectra of human experience.


You will discover:

  • the opportunities and challenges for the collaboration between practitioner and supervisor on gender and sexual diversity
  • why there is no one-size-fits-all solution to abusive therapy for gender and sexual minorities
  • how differences in identity, culture and developmental stage of practice influence the supervisory collaboration
  • how to facilitate ethical contracting when your supervisee is working with a client in conflict and distress over their orientation or identity
  • your practice-specific contributions to ending abusive therapy of gender and sexual minorities?


This event is for UKCP supervisors only.


A pre-study pack will be sent to all registrants prior to the training and will require 6-8 hours of preparation and post-training reflection and activity.


In order to fully participate and benefit from this training some engagement with the pre-study pack prior to attendance is vital. How and what time you give to this depends on your own learning style and current depth of appreciation of the material.
