'Stuck' scenarios in supervision - PART TWO

Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You LEARN

Developed by Lydia Sterry B.A (hons) M.A

We’re all human, we’re going to be a part of some “good” supervision sessions and even some “good enough” sessions.
Other times we may be a part of some difficult and sometimes challenging sessions.
I’m interested in looking at MORE of these challenging sessions.
Challenging sessions only continue to be challenging if we neglect to make the effort to learn from them.
This course opens up the door of courage EVEN WIDER, to walk through different (compared to part one) EXPLORATION challenges we may find in supervision.


The goal of this ONLINE VIDEO & POWER POINT program PART TWO is to REFLECT even deeper on finding a half way step towards responding to MORE examples of resistances in supervision.

The course highlights how by speaking in terms of ‘maybe’, or ‘perhaps’ to the supervisee, we allow BOTH the supervisee and supervisor the mental space to play with these resistances in the session. Once in that “play” mode interaction, resistance maybe lowered, creating room for surprising insights to arrive.

The course is not about looking to give insight to the supervisee about these resistances but rather to let it be discovered by the supervisee and supervisor together. Of course, there are times when we may need to be more sure than tentative, but the course highlights how maybe the understanding is better to arrive from the supervisee’s own cues.

Using concrete examples, the course content assists you to wander through certain types of chalenges rather than attacking it, being paralyzed by it or running from it. It assists the supervisor and the supervisee to move towards a new narrative that may enable “struggles” to lessen and provide ways of going on to emerge.

Overall it looks at OPENING UP your viewpoint towards experimenting with Existential Supervision to “meet” resistances in supervision.

Whether you’re a psychotherapist, Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Chaplain, Pastoral Carer, Rabbi, Social Worker, Doctor, working with supervisee or trainees, you may benefit from doing this course.

This course is offered as a two-part Program.
It is recommended part one is completed FIRST.
