This workshop/seminar will study supervision processes in gestalt therapy, as they may find enrichment from psychoanalytic and developmental sources. Each of the eight modules will begin with a didactic session (theory, history, crises, expanding awareness wider and deeper, trauma, parallel process, and dissociation). Each module will also contain experiential work, either in small groups or with the whole group, and shared reflection on this work. Each participant’s personal history of supervision will come into play, respecting privacy. Differences between individual and peer supervision (intervision) will also come into consideration, as well as differences between single/short consultations and ongoing supervision.
