In the process of becoming a psychotherapist, high quality supervision is extraordinarily valuable. However, most programs do not teach the skills and approaches needed to become a supervisor. Many therapists simply have to rely upon the way they were supervised, in a de facto mentor model. More recently the literature on supervision has included attention to assessing and developing both the skill sets and psychological attitudes that best foster the growth of new supervisors. Differences between practicing psychotherapy and supervising the work of others are now recognized and separate trainings are recommended. In this 9 session course a number of senior clinicians who have done supervision in multiple settings, will offer some models for becoming a supervisor from a depth psychological perspective. Practical applications of supervisory materials will be a central focus of the course, which will have a case colloquium format.
This program is open to mental health practitioners and students in clinically-oriented graduate degree programs.
October 6, 2016 – Lionel Corbett
The initial session will provide a basic introduction, including setting up a depth oriented supervisory practice (practical and theoretical considerations) and establishing a supervisory alliance—issues of shame and authority; common dilemmas and possible resolutions.
November 3, 2016 – Avedis Panajian
The second session will address types of supervision, hazards and value of supervision, exploring the complex relationship between supervisor/supervisee— including boundary issues, transference, and countertransference dynamics in the supervisory process.
December 8, 2016 – Joe Cambray
The third session will provide an introduction of unconscious dynamics in supervision, including the use of dreams; the role of parallel process and other field phenomena.
January 26, 2017 – Avedis Panajian
The fourth session will cover the misconception of all knowing supervisor, note taking (or other forms of recording) for supervision, confidence vs insecurity in the supervisor, supervision as a second opinion vs supervision relying on the myth of a technique, and supervision that aims to create a co-construction of a field between supervisor and supervisee through each surrendering to their own state of reverie.
March 2, 2017 – Linda Carter
The fifth session will cover acceptance and fair critique in supervision and how to reflect on unconscious parallel process in the treatment and supervisory relationships. The co-constructed relationship in the therapy and the supervision will be considered using Jung’s alchemical model of Sol and Luna from Volume 16, The Psychology of the Transference.
March 30, 2017 – Joseph Bobrow
The sixth session notes the limitations of the terms transference and countertransference, and explores the overarching concept and ubiquitous phenomenon of unconscious emotional communication both within the individual and in the intersubjective relational field as it develops moment to moment in therapy and supervision. The notion of presence of mind will be examined as a palpable primary presence as explored by Milner, Balint, and the presenter. Supervising cases will then be approached where traumatic impacts are a primary feature, either in the patient, the therapist or the supervisor, and what contribution Zen meditation might make to the work.
May 4, 2017 – Linda Carter
The seventh session will focus on attachment styles as they emerge in treatment and supervision as well as how to consider both the explicit and implicit modes of communication.
June 8, 2017 – Lionel Corbett
The eighth session will cover historical perspectives on supervision, models of supervision and the teach/treat issue.
July 6, 2017 – Joe Cambray
The ninth session session will speak to the relational model of supervision and regression in supervision.
