Supervision is an essential constituent of analytic and psychotherapy training and a crucial part of ongoing professional development for all practitioners. In spite of this, little formal theory about supervision has been developed and, for the most part, learning to supervise has progressed using a simple apprenticeship model. Supervising and Being Supervised aims to rectify this situation. Jan Wiener, Richard Mizen and Jenny Duckham draw together contributions from a number of experienced Jungian analysts who supervise to explore key aspects of the supervisory experience with the aim of developing a theory for analytically-based work. Part One explores the nature of the supervisor-supervisee relationship, Part Two looks at a number of the settings and applications of supervision and Part Three examines problems that might occur in supervision. In the fourth and final part, and drawing on the previous chapters, the focus turns specifically to the challenges of developing a clear theory of supervision.

Editorial Reviews

" the first comprehensive Jungian approach to supervision to be published...An invaluable building block for training and assessment at all levels...[and] essential reading for people engaged in supervision.' --Coline Covington, Chair of British Confederation of Psychotherapists "The great merit of this book is that it brings together a number of very different contributions to the central aspects of supervision, from highly different perspectives, accompanied by clear and thoughtful introduction and summary chapters by the editors...The authors base their theoretical reflections on their practical experiences as supervisors, using real case examples that make the book both stimulating and easy to read." --Verena Kast, University of Zurich"This book should become essential reading in analytic training programs throughout the world. The essays collected here represent the most current and informed thinking on the emergent discipline of analytic supervision. The work admirably fills a critical gap in the literature." --Murray Stein, President, International Association of Analytical Psychology
