The training will run in 2021 and 2022 and will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. There will be individual supervision of cases on a regular basis with our nominated supervisors, who are experts in MCT. The supervision process is aided by a supervision log implemented via email. Workshops will be held four times a year.
