This, our second course on supervision, explores psychodynamic currents in the adult stages of development. Acknowledged or not, ancient initiatory roles get constellated in training and administrative situations. Presentations show how working relationships are enhanced if unconscious dimensions are recognized.
Storytelling will focus on Charlotte’s Web to illustrate skillful mentoring. The classic tale demonstrates the task of identifying the unique qualities of a protégé. Course emphasis is on health professions, but the material can be also applied to other mentoring situations. The day is also useful for those who manage supervisors, those receiving training, and those generally interested in how insights can be drawn from archetypal stories.
Identify key issues in supervision and guidance.
Recognize the ways expectations and transference influence the work.
Understand how having a role model helps the protégé develop skills.
