Remember to save the date for our annual conference – Sept 11 & 12, 2020 at the Arboretum. Helping Clients Change: Focus on Trauma

An Adlerian Model of Supervision, using Family Constellation and Early Recollections

EVENT INFORMATION
Friday, October 25 2019, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM [CST]

ABOUT THE EVENT


Based on model of supervision and consultation developed by Kopp, Shifron, and other systems Adlerians, this training will help supervisors to avoid impasses in supervision when supervisors’ own early childhood history, family constellation, and his or her lifestyle developed in early childhood clashes with the one of a supervisee who is already struggling with an identified “difficult” client. Ethics of self-awareness and using projective techniques in supervision will be thoroughly discussed.
