About Training & Supervision
In order to use the PuP program in clinical settings, a clincian is required to have training and clinical supervision in the PuP model. This will lead to accreditation as a PUP therapist.
Qualifications and job description that are needed to become a PuP therapist.
We do not require formal qualifications i.e., psychology or social work, in order to become a PuP Therapist. A committment to working with mulitproblem families using a systemic approach of home visiting, intensive case management and therapy are essential. Further, the PuP program is intensive and we strongly recommend that clinical staff only consider embarking on the training program with the support of their organisation to ensure that they have the necessary time to work with three families during the Accreditation process.
The training and clinical supervision program involves a combination of training and clinical supervision that adds up to 30 hours. Therapists receive instruction in the PUP model and theoretical background and are then required to take on cases to receive further clinical supervision in program implimentation. A minimum of three families are required to receive accreditation. During clinical supervision each trainee PuP Therapist will be supported to complete a Case Summary for three families. This enables the PuP therapist to demonstrate competancy in the PuP model.
The cost of the training and clinical supervision is $3,000 per clinican (excluding travel) where clinical supervision is conducted in pairs and includes a combination of telephone and face-to-face clinical supervision.
