This supervision workshop will illustrate how analysts with different analytic backgrounds may work together jointly as supervisors in a way that enhances student learning. We believe that it is valuable for students to learn to view the same case from a variety of points of view, because there is no single model of psychotherapy that can do justice to the inner world of another person, or to the richness and complexity of the psyche. There are times in psychotherapy when one theoretical approach or another casts particularly helpful light on a clinical situation. In this half-day workshop, a graduate student from Pacifica Graduate Institute's Depth Psychotherapy program will present a case to Dr. Avedis Panajian, a supervising and training analyst, and Dr. Lionel Corbett, a Jungian analyst. Both supervisors will comment and discuss the case and invite audience participation. The goals of this presentation include: Presenting a collaborative model of supervision from a variety of theoretical perspectives; helping attendees gain an appreciation for common factors within the supervision process; provide a demonstration of working with the countertransference as a major source of clinical information; and a demonstration of facilitating countertransference into effective intervention.
