On Supervision: Psychoanalytic and Jungian Perspectives

Author(s): Ann Petts and Bernard Shapley


This book comprises papers on the theory and practice of supervision, all written by experienced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists and Jungian Analytic Psychotherapists. Important aspects of the supervisory relationship are covered, including papers on the supervisor's countertransference, supervising work with suicidal patients and the dynamics of racial difference in supervision. Group supervision and dynamics are related to the supervisor's role in the assessment of trainees.

The contributions in this book mainly began life as presentations to the BAP course on 'Developing Supervision Skills', a space in which new thinking about supervision has been able to be developed by contributors and participants alike. The book also covers fundamentals to consider when beginning in supervisory practice, including ways of creating a secure frame for thinking to take place and some of the ethical attitudes needed within the supervisory relationship. Supervisory technique is considered in broad overview and in some very personal views, from two highly experienced supervisors and a supervisee who has keenly observed some different supervisory styles.
