We hope you are enjoying the last days of August.
Welcome to the second year of Cape-TSA - Seminars about Supervision. The seminars will be the second Wednesday of the month, 8 to 9:30. Below is the plan and reading for the first class. See you on 9/8!
Brenda, Holly and Sharone
Class I, 9/8/21: Introduction: What you want to learn and what we want to teach.
Class: Following Sharone’s introduction of the course, Brenda will facilitate a group discussion guided by the following questions:
- Thinking back upon your experience in training, what were the significant nodal points in supervision for your development as an analyst?
- What experiences as a supervisee, both positive and negative, do you have in mind as you anticipate becoming a supervisor?
- Since graduating analytic training, what are the significant changes that you have experienced that inform who you are as an analyst and supervisor today?
- What do you want to get from this year’s course on supervision?
In the last 30 minutes, we will discuss establishing safety in supervision.
We assign this reading because the issues discussed are present at some level in all supervisions. This article brings the reader personally into the supervisory experience. We will integrate the reading in the class discussion.
- Safety in Supervision: Initial Considerations, culled from the literature and Sharone’s, Brenda’s and Holly’s experience.
