Supervision Masterclass: Process Supervision & Taped Super..
The significance of supervision in developing clinical expertise has been acknowledged since the inception of psychoanalysis. Freud hosted weekly evening meetings in his home, where he and other therapists discussed both theoretical and case-related topics, essentially conducting group supervision (Hess, 2008).
When practicing psychodynamic psychotherapy, supervision is essential. However, what happens during supervision is highly variable. In this Masterclass, Dr Nick Bendit & Dr Kris Rao will discuss 'process supervision', which is common to most psychodynamic models, as well as cover 'audio tape supervision', which is somewhat unique to supervising the Conversational Model (CM) practitioners. The webinar will emphasise managing both difficult clients and supervisees, along with other clinical challenges encountered in the supervisory relationship.
The Learning Outcomes are:
- Appreciate the history of supervision in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
- Understanding how to set up a new psychodynamic supervision arrangement.
- Balancing teaching psychotherapy principles, versus process-learning during the supervision hour.
- Managing difficult emotions within the therapy relationship, as well as difficult supervisees within the supervisory relationship. This includes discussing countertransference, enactment, and impasse.
- Identifying typical challenges that supervisees bring, regarding their difficult clients.
- Effectively using psychotherapy tapes for supervision within the Conversational Model (CM), with an emphasis on supervisees gaining CM-specific micro-skills.
Venue: Online Webinar. Includes access to recording for 30 days. Excludes clinical observation content.
