“Supervision is not ‘management’ but open exploration. It is a soulful endeavour. At the heart of group supervision is the crucial notion of affect, the modification or variation produced in a body/mind by the interaction with other bodies/minds. Affects carry important information, and it is through being affected, that therapists and supervisors can begin to unfasten the artificial separateness of client-therapist-supervisor. That’s when the client’s experience may be more genuinely accessed. Through experiential processing of clinical material and discussion, we will explore some innovative ideas from affect theory and beyond that may enliven and enrich participants’ practice. For an introduction, please refer to this free article published in Threshold, a BACP magazine: click here. My way of working is suitable for therapists of all orientations” Dr Manu Bazzano.
