Therapists learning depth psychotherapy (extending several years) make a greater personal commitment than in other forms of therapy. Supervision of this work requires attention to the therapist's subjective experience as well as to procedures and conceptual perspectives. This workshop will include direct teaching, unrehearsed demonstration with an actual supervisee, and candid feedback from supervisee and supervisor.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To clarify the demands on long-term therapists; e.g., great personal commitment, monitoring ego functioning, helping client gradually to take more responsibility for the work, and continual monitoring of one's own emotional state
  2. To aid clinical application by demonstrations with an actual supervisee (who is completing her doctorate with a dissertation on this topic). She will disclose her own experience and will synopsize the findings of her research
