Authenticity and Openness in the Supervisee-Supervisor Relationship
by MF Van Vreeswijk and M.Boog
* Becoming more aware of the role of limited reparenting in the supervisor-supervisee relationship
70% of the workshop will be focused on experienced based learning by the participants of the workshop via imagery exercises, role play and chair technique. 30% of the workshop will be used for Powerpoint and giving examples as role model.
Supervisors who are more aware of how their schemas and modes relate to openness and authenticity will be more easily able to make well profound choices. They will be more aware of how schemas and modes influence the way we work together and give feedback to supervisees.

Schema therapy is all about the interaction between temperament, upbringing and (traumatic) experiences in the family and or the environment / at school. Schemas emerge because of the lack of fulfilling the basic needs. The literature describes schemas, coping and modes, but not sexuality. It is our experience that this theme is important in therapy and essential to elaborate. Sexuality is all about self-esteem, fear of rejection and abandonment, identity, intimacy, and distance. When we talk about sexuality in therapy, we learn more about the core themes of the patient, his schemas, and modes. How can you bring this subject up in therapy? Is it possible to use ST language? Which exercises can you use? In this skills class, we will teach you to be comfortable talking about this subject.
Level of Experience Required for Participants:
