Relational psychodynamic psychotherapy arose in reaction to hierarchical, doctor-patient aspects of Freudian psychoanalysis. It emphasizes instead the partnership between therapist and client, and a conscious focus on the power dynamics involved in this inherently unequal relationship. In this book, Joan E. Sarnat describes a dynamic approach to clinical supervision that is based upon this therapeutic approach. While some clinicians treat the supervisory relationship as entirely distinct from therapy, Sarnat presents a straightforward and ethical framework within which a supervisor uses his or her clinical skills to help supervisees navigate their responses to their work with clients.

Clear, concise chapters cover the theoretical and empirical basis for a relational model of supervision, and offer specific recommendations for addressing typical problems related by beginning, intermediate, and advanced supervisees. The book also includes revealing transcripts and analyses of the author s supervisory sessions with real trainees, including those documented in the author s companion DVD.
