Supervision of the Psychoanalytic Process Program

Supervision is the cornerstone of all mental health professionals. Yet the skills of an effective therapist are not necessarily the same as those needed to be an effective supervisor. By interweaving scholarly training, and relevance through “practical” experience,  The Supervision of the Psychoanalytic Process Program provides a unique opportunity to receive training in the principles of supervision while enhancing clinical skills.

In addition to relevant readings, this program offers intensive clinical experiences through observation of live supervisory sessions.  Integral to the program is the opportunity to supervise therapists on a weekly basis. This hands on approach is critical to integrating the skills necessary to practice excellent supervision. The goal of this hands-on approach is to enhance effective training by directly experiencing the teaching-learning issues that inevitably arise in the supervisory work, thus translating theoretical knowledge into effective practice.
