This workshop in Psychoanalytic Supervision will provide discussion groups highlighting issues that commonly become problematic in supervision. One focus will be delineating how supervising and teaching overlap but differ. Another focus will consider how much personal information the supervisee needs to divulge to the supervisor to make the supervision a meaningful learning experience.
Participants will be able to identify the differences and similarities between supervision and teaching.
Participants will learn how much personal information to expect from a supervisee and how to use it productively in the supervision experience.
