Small group supervision (max 5 participants) for provisional psychologists or early career psychologists wanting to deepen their understanding of the therapeutic relationship in clinical practice, which is one of the strongest predictors of treatment success. This goes beyond empathy, rapport-building and working collaboratively, but focuses on many of the unconscious processes that can easily be missed, as well as using the relationship as a therapeutic tool for change. While this group will use a psychodynamic lens to explore the client-therapist relationship, the principles can be applied to other therapeutic modalities.
This group will cover the following:
- The purpose and importance of the therapeutic relationship in clinical practice
- Attuning to subtle and unconscious cues
- Managing our own responses to therapeutic material
- Transference, countertransference and enactment
- Appropriate self-disclosure
- Repairing mistakes or ruptures in the therapeutic relationship
Please note that there is a 7 day cancellation/exchange policy for group supervision.
