Section A
This review critically evaluates the published literature regarding what sustains clinical psychologists in their careers over time. A systematic literature search of three online databases (PsychInfo, Assia and Web of Science) and a manual search of relevant reference lists resulted in 10 papers addressing this aim. Eight studies utilised a cross sectional design, two studies used a mixed methods design combining qualitative and quantitative methods. Themes were generated from the findings in these papers and collated. Clinical and research implications were also discussed.

Section B
A Delphi survey investigated what experts consider best practice for the supervision of senior clinical psychologists. Three rounds of online survey were used to gather opinions and assess the level of consensus that existed for the group. The findings of the study are presented and the clinical and research implications are considered.
