Parenting Group and Individual Practice Competency Tapes

You will have to submit three therapy video recordings over the year. Two of these will be of the groups you run and one on individual work. The group tapes submitted for marking will preferably have 50% of your whole group attendance in the session. A minimum of 6 people in the group must be included in your group practice tape.

 

Guidance on Tape Length and Session

For your IY group tapes, you must submit a whole group tape, of two hours length. The group itself must last for 2 hours, plus the time for a break.

 

Tape A should be an example of leading the group in weeks 7, 8 or 9. Tape C should be submitted from week 10 onwards.

 

For the HNC tape, this should be a whole session, of no more than 1 hour and 30 minutes long. It is advised that the first HNC session with a family is not used.

Guidance on Recording Sessions

You will be expected to submit videos as part of the clinical assessment and bring these to supervision. It is essential that you obtain the consent of your parent/carers for the recording to be used for supervision and/or assessment and submit this with your tapes. The consent form also asks whether your client will be willing for the recording to be used in future training. You should consult your placement supervisor about your Trust’s policies on storing the recordings and transporting the clips and submissions to the University.

Recording Equipment

All Trusts and services should provide trainees with recording equipment to make and transport video recordings securely.

Marking Criteria

For Parenting tapes, Incredible Years Parent Group Leader Rating Scale marking criteria will be used.

Marking criteria is adapted from the Incredible Years Collaborative Process checklist, copyright Carolyn Webster-Stratton. A Pass at this level equates to the competencies required for tape review based on the CYP IAPT PG Diploma National Curriculum competencies.

For Parenting Individual Tapes, marking criteria from Helping the Non-Complaint Child will be used.

Reflective Practice Log

Three Reflective logs are required – one with Tape A, one with Tape B, and one with Tape C. Three Reflective logs are required – one handed in with each tape (A, B and C). The logs can be written on any topic that has been a significant part of the work. The writing must follow a reflective structure, to include experience/observation; reflection; summary, plans and implications. A focus on practitioner development is helpful.

 

Reflective Log with Group Tape A (1000 words)

Use this log to reflect on the delivery of the Incredible Years group. You can be guided by your own experiences and should use a reflective model. Some questions that may support your thinking could include: how your group was convened and the process of your group forming; What was positive about the process of recruiting and selecting families to participate? How would you change the way you establish the group in the future? How did the venue contribute to the experience of the group? In the light of your experience, what aspects would you retain, and what aspects would you change?

Reflective Log with Individual Tape B (1000 words)

Use this log to reflect on the process of completing individual work. You can be guided by your own experiences and should use a reflective model. Some questions that may support your thinking could include: how was this experience in comparison to group work? Were there any differences to your practicing style and what did you have to work on? How did you manage the therapeutic alliance? What was it like working with the parent and the child?


Reflective Log with Group Tape C (1000 words)

Use this log to reflect on the delivery of the group intervention and the process of forming and ending a group. You can be guided by your own experiences and should use a reflective model. Some questions that may support your thinking could include: which elements of the model fit well with your practicing style and which do you have to work on? How have you experienced co-facilitation in this group? Which sessions have gone particularly well, and which have not worked so well as planned? What do you notice about how your practice has developed in this second group?
