Through lecture, exercises, shared clinical vignettes, and discussion, this course examines the supervisory process. By looking at what we actually do in psychoanalytically oriented therapy that is helpful we can determine what is important to teach in supervision. The workshop will delineate competencies that represent effective psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy and effective supervision. Participants will evaluate themselves using this model. Through small group role-play, they will practice and receive feedback about their supervision.
Becoming a competent therapist and supervisor is a learning process combining cognitive and emotional factors. Participants will learn about the stages in the development of a psychotherapist and how to adapt their supervision to the developmental level of the supervisee. Participants will be exposed to different contemporary psychoanalytic constructs and see how they apply to clinical experience. Participants will have a chance to discuss dilemmas that arise in supervision.
Dreams shroud the waking world, dazzling and disturbing it with mystery, perplexity, novelty, inspiration, anxiety, terror, hope, and possibility. Dreams have a protean vitality that resists, defies, and eludes fixed structures of interpretation. Anthony Blake, an English intellectual, has described dreams as something unbidden that come out of darkness with an intelligence beyond our waking intelligence to grasp.This statement captures the mystery and challenge of the dream, suggestive of an otherworldly interface between the sleeping mind and the world, an indeterminate interface that holds unrealized potential.
