Log Books

The BPS ‘Standards for the accreditation of Doctoral courses in clinical psychology’ (October 2016), require that trainees keep a log of their clinical practice.  On the Teesside Course the logbook is in two parts:

  • A diary section in which all activity during practice is listed.
  • A therapeutic competencies section where model specific skills are tracked cumulatively across placements.

Trainees should keep their logbooks up to date at least weekly and are responsible for taking them into a supervision session once a month for review and discussion with their supervisors. Supervisors must confirm that they have seen and agree the content of the logbooks prior to submission.
