There has been comparatively little literature on supervision from a psychoanalytic perspective. Both psychoanalytic organizations and general professional groups in psychology, psychiatry, and social work have recently emphasized the value of mentorship and have urged training programs to offer courses in supervision. But most graduate courses on the topic have relied on models premised on the development of “competencies” or the acquisition of specific skills. This program will instead emphasize more foundational processes, including how to help therapists monitor certain vital signs of overall progress in their patients and how to welcome and make supervisory use of individual differences between therapist and mentor.
Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Distinguish between skills-training models and overall professional growth models.
– Enumerate five “vital signs” of overall therapeutic progress in patients that supervisors help therapists to monitor.
– Describe empirical findings documenting the high frequency of supervisees’ keeping secrets from supervisors.
