- 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 meant for graduated body psychotherapists who work in a private practice for at least ten hours a week with four year ample experience in either the Core Energetic method or body psychotherapy. In connection with this training you should have one client as a supervisee. This supervisee may be a student of one of the training institutes or outside of them. The essence is that the supervisee is being supervised on the dynamic aspects of accompanying (prospective) body-oriented psychotherapists.
- Contribution of your own case studies, both oral and recorded.
- Reading and discussing literature.
- Reflection exercises through role playing among others.
- Supervising one another and live supervising within the group.
- Watching recordings (in subgroups).
It is a six-day training divided into three two-day sessions of seven hours each (42 hours altogether). Each day attention will be paid to theory (literature), exercises/live supervisions and watching and commenting on the recordings made by the participant. The focus here will be on the theme of the day.
Presence: You will be allowed to be absent for not more than half a day. This is equal to three and half hours. These three and half hours will be compensated for by a substitute assignment.
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 his/her own (vision paper).
The ultimate review/assessment will be completed with an accreditation as a “supervisor body psychotherapist” and the issuing of a certificate.
