Transference & Countertransference in the Supervisor/Supervisee Relationship
Friday, October 25, 2013
Supervision can look like a cross between administrator, mentor, cheerleader and therapist. This workshop explores the complicated dynamic of transference and countertransference in the supervision relationship and discusses how to use it as an opportunity for teaching and professional growth. We will look at the theoretical history of these terms and current practice applications.
Three continuing education credits are available for social workers and counselors.
Cost: Pre-Registration $60, Students $35

- Define the term “implied contract” in the supervision relationship.
