The effectiveness of CBT depends on the quality of supervision and training that is provided to its practitioners. This manual is intended to significantly strengthen the available resources for training CBT supervisors (primarily) working within clinical services in the mental health field. The manual and its associated content are structured in user-friendly modules, designed to support multiple potential training functions including the initial credentialing and certification of supervisors, providing training to individual supervisors in a continuing education/professional development format, assisting in a ‘train the trainer’ approach, and distance learning. The authors drew on the insights of many accredited CBT supervisors to develop the guidance, and the work is built firmly on an evidence-based approach.
