TRAINING TO BECOME A SUPERVISOR
NICE offers a 7-day training for body oriented therapists to become a supervisor for students.
The training is aimed at learning different supervisor competencies/skills such as: having the knowledge of different views on supervision, creating a safe learning/working situation, learning to work with and recognizing of different phases of supervision, creating awareness of the internal dialogue, (non-verbal) transference and counter transference; identifying parallel processes; pitfalls, recognising dilemmas, ethics and boundaries; readiness to reflection and consultation.
- What is supervision: definition of supervision within the body psychotherapy
- Supervision as a learning process, context of the learning processes
- Learning goals and phasing of the supervision process
- Attitude and learning relationships / working relationships and the supervisor/supervisee relationship
- Character structure of the supervisor and the supervisee
- Ethics and boundaries
- Reflecting / considering as an awareness-raising process of the self-assessing supervisor
- Live supervising
- Pitfalls and parallel processes
- Body-oriented supervision techniques.
The training is for certified body-oriented psychotherapists (Core Energetics or another model of body-oriented psychotherapy) who work at least ten hours a week in their own practice and who have at least four years of work experience. You also need to have good knowledge of body-oriented work. You are willing to bring in one of your own clients and to be supervised by another participant. This requires motivation, commitment and vulnerability to show yourself in your therapeutic work.
- Bringing your own case studies, written and recorded
- Reading and discussing literature
- Reflection exercises using (among other things) role play
- Supervise each other and live supervision in the group
- Writing reflection reports.
Supervision is continuous “work in progress”, but it is to be expected that at the end of the training:
- you will be able to shape a supervision processes.
- you will be able to make a consistent and methodological approach.
- you will be able reflect on different aspects of the supervision relationships.
- you will be able to recognize dilemmas, (non-verbal) transfer and counter transfer, and parallel processes.
- you will start action on a formulated style of your own (vision paper).
The ultimate review/assessment will be completed with an accreditation as a “supervisor body psychotherapist” and the issuing of a certificate.
