“The immersion in the bath is another ‘night sea journey...’ The ‘night sea journey’ is…a descent into Hades and a journey to the land of ghosts somewhere beyond this world, beyond consciousness, hence an immersion in the unconscious.” C. G. Jung, CW 16, para.455.

This course will consist of presentations that include issues of shame, envy, abandonment, trauma that occur in work with patients and then that is revealed in the supervisory relationship via parallel processes, as well as unconscious reactions on the parts of supervisors, supervisees, and patients. These, usually unexpected reactions will be examined in light of the idea of unconscious processes as ubiquitous in the supervisory relationship as they are in the patient and therapist relationship. The purpose of this examination will be to discern material that will help to understand and further the development of patients. The focus will always be on how supervisors can help their supervisees to help their patients understand and alleviate their suffering and pain, and to help patients know and understand themselves better. Presenters will give examples of their work as supervisors and members of the workshop will be encouraged to speak about their own work with supervisees.
