Clinical training and supervision are provided for psychotherapists of all theoretical backgrounds and varying levels of experience who are looking to learn new ways of integrating therapeutic modalities during psychotherapy sessions.
Learn effective ways to facilitate powerful change with your patients through both experiential practice and theoretical application.
Individual supervision is a powerful way to understand the psychodynamic principles and transpersonal dynamics happening in the room. In this sacred space, each clinician moves deeply into their own healing process and emerges transformed into the next phase of their life and work in the world.
Week by week, therapists move through many layers and experience a parallel therapy process along with a concrete understanding of how to apply the experiential knowledge gained into actual clinical practice. By the end of supervision, therapists are ready to actualize a whole other level of potential healing spaces within their patients.
Group supervision is offered seasonly comprised of 3-5 members in a group. In this forum, clinicians have the opportunity to present clinical cases, observe psychological phenomena, explore personal strengths and limitations, and work collectively in a group.
Various themes and scholarly reading materials are presented by the supervisor as each week progresses with reflective take-home practices. Clinicians are able to expand their healing container, become aware of individual defenses and personality structures, gain a wider access of perspectives from the group process, and attain new insights and skills.
Overarching themes expanded upon include:
I. History of American Psychology and Whole-person Psychology
II. The Role of Consciousness & Models of the Self in Psychotherapy
III. Transpersonal Psychology: History, Praxis, and Philosophy
IV. Transpersonal Psychology: Psychotherapeutic Applications
V. Humanistic Psychology: Therapeutic Dynamics
VI. Psychodynamic Psychology: Psychoanalytic Diagnosis and Case Formulations
VII. Clinical Intuition: Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice
