Course Description:

This course provides a user-friendly guide to 5 complex topics in therapy and supervision: empathy, clinical dimensions, attachment style, selfobject transferences and parallel process. Each topic is defined; then techniques to teach and apply these concepts to therapy and supervision are demonstrated through clinical material and case examples.

Supervision requires us to articulate how we work so that we can teach, mentor and guide new members of the profession. We may know how to "do it" but sharing our accumulated knowledge and therapy experience is a challenging task.
