Supervision in Psychotherapy: A Psychodynamic and Relational Approach


A one-day workshop with Dr Diana Shmukler 

London, July 1st 2017, 10:00AM to 4:00PM


Utilising learnings from a case-study of an extremely challenging and yet successful long-term individual therapy, this workshop considers how even experienced therapists can sometimes feel exasperated with certain therapeutic relationships. Progress seems stalled and psychoanalytic techniques allow for little headway. While supervision may be at hand, the dilemma remains whether we are being too rash in translating supervision input into therapeutic action. Equally, we might have delayed the call for supervision adding to the sense of therapeutic urgency.

Drawing on Winnicottian thought and real-life clinical material, the workshop explains why supervision is an integral part of any therapeutic endeavour. By integrating theory and practice, elucidating the efficacy of  two-person psychology and drawing attention to our subjectivities – Dr Shmukler demonstrates how the skilful use of supervision can have demonstrable impact on therapeutic outcomes – both for straightforward and complex cases.

The workshop will be especially relevant for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists, practitioners and students of integrative psychotherapy, counsellors and psychiatrists. By drawing our attention to how our clients perceive therapy, when and how we should seek supervisory assistance; and also explaining how our provision of supervision can benefit from a flexible approach – Dr Shmukler’s explanations allow us to:

  • Respond better to relational needs
  • Work cognitively with transference

with a view to re-evaluating our theoretical approach, and hence enhancing our therapeutic efficacy.
