I am a huge believer in supervision and learning. One of the best ways we can do this is to view our work. Video provides an excellent opportunity to capture your therapy expertise.
It gives you a chance to review and see what worked well so you can repeat this. It is a wonderful teaching tool. You also see what you can improve on, but please don’t judge yourself harshly.
Most counselling training programs require you to submit video case studies of your work for assessment and certification. So I encourage you to start now. Indeed I am completing some Imago Couple therapy training and will be doing this in the future.
Training Resource Therapy we love to video our demonstrations and I always offer our students the opportunity to bring a tape of their work in the supervision consultations. There is no bigger benefit than seeing good therapy in action and real change occur in the therapy hour.
With today’s phones and laptops you don’t need any fancy equipment. My Apple IPhone works a treat and I use a selfie stick with a tripod – cost $10 or so.
What you must ensure is you have consent from your clients and this is best obtained in a written form. As responsible and ethical therapists this is a given. As our free gift to you for Black Friday I am letting you have our RTIA Video Consent and Release Template for you to adapt to your psychology practice. Please use and enjoy!
