Invited Address Session 8 Part 2 from the Evolution of Psychotherapy 1995- The Leap to Complexity: Supervision in Family Therapy
Featuring Salvador Minuchin, MD, with discussant Jeffrey K Zeig, PhD.
Moderated by Janet Edgette, PsyD.

Supervision and therapy are isomorphic processes. What supervision teaches is the process of creating change in people, and the very teaching of this process is itself an attempt to create change in the supervisee. Like families, therapists tend to confine themselves to selected segments of their possible repertory. Thus a major goal of supervision can be the expansion of the therapist's use of self.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the foundations that every therapist has, and the idiosyncratic styles that constrain their interventions.
  2. To describe a form of supervision that, accepting the therapist's baselines, moves toward an expansion on the repertory of therapeutic possibilities.
  3. To describe the process of the relationship between supervisor and supervisee.
