Becoming a PUP Therapist
The training and supervision program is 30 hours long. It consists of a 2 days of intensive training (14 hours). This is followed by 6 one hour weekly supervision sessions. A further one day intensive is conducted (7 hours) and the final 3 hours of supervision take place in the next 6 weeks.PUP trainees are required to work with a minimum of three families using the PUP model during this process.
At the end of clinical supervision and training, the PUP trainee completes three case summaries detailing their use of the PUP program. These are read by their PUP Trainer to ensure that the trainee has demonstrated an understanding of the PUP model and shows competancy in the delivery of the program. Specially designed forms are provided during training and support and guildance is offered by the PUP trainer with feedback given on each case summary draft.
This leads to Accreditation as a PUP Therapist. If you wish, you will be listed on the PuP website.
