Hardback
Since the 1980s many psychodynamic therapists have begun to view the relational processes taking place between patient and therapist as a central source of transformation. Yet traditional paradigms of clinical supervision, focusing primarily on didactic teaching, have limitations for training therapists to work in these new ways. This volume elaborates a comprehensive contemporary model of supervision. Using a range of examples and vignettes, the authors show how working within the vicissitudes of the supervisory relationship can allow the supervisee to gain a deeper understanding of the treatment method being taught. Key topics discussed in the book include* issues of power and authority; regression in the supervisory relationship; rethinking the teach/treat question; parallel process as a relational phenomenon; working with group process in case conference; and the role of the organization in supporting training.

- Publisher "The Supervisory Relationship: A Contemporary Psychodynamic Approach, by Mary Gail Frawley-O'Dea and Joan Sarnat, extends the intellectual vigor and clinical relevance of our multiple ways of knowing to the supervisory process in a manner that is accessible, thought-provoking, and immediately useful....We often read that 'both beginning and experienced practitioners will benefit from immersion in this work,' and in this case that is absolutely so--but with the reminder that with regard to an educated approach to the field of supervision, this book will make us all feel like grateful beginners discovering new approaches and new possibilities to enrich our work and the work of our supervisees."--Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association (JAPA) "While the book is full of psychoanalytic theory, there are many clinical vignettes that add depth and specificity to the theory....I strongly recommend it for those involved in the practice of supervision."--Pastoral Sciences "The authors' argument is well thought-out and clearly presented. The relational model of supervision would be useful in any clinical supervisor-supervisee relationship, regardless of the therapeutic method used with clients. Frawley-O'Dea and Sarnat have written a book that takes clinical supervision into a more constructivist realm....The authors make an excellent point when they state that all supervisors must articulate their own theory of helping. Self-awareness is needed in any therapeutic relationship. Throughout the book are case examples of supervision to illustrate the concepts presented."--Social Work Today "Frawley-O'Dea and Sarnat's book is useful reading for supervisors and psychiatric residents in supervision. It illuminates important relational concepts. The text, in that it dramatically avoids associating psychoanalysis with natural science, offers a wonderful teaching opportunity, illustrating the diverse opinions in the field of psychoanalysis and the importance of pressing forward with a program to bring psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic supervision under the umbrella and scrutiny of natural science."--Canadian Journal of Psychiatry "...a timely book that will serve as a text for all levels of clinical training. The concepts of relational theory are particularly accessible in the book since it includes many case examples, which beautifully illustrate the authors' ideas. In addition in its pages, new questioning voices are raised that challenge, enlarge and enliven analytic discourse. The winds of change unfold, brining new and divergent ideas which may offer the reader greater freedom to think more broadly about treatment issues without feeling identity conflice as a psychoanalyst or psychodynamically trained therapist and/or supervisor."--Psychoanalytic Social Work "...supervision is finally getting increased attention. Frawley-O'Dea and Sarnat make a major contribution to this effort in their book, The Supervisory Relationship: A Contemporary Psychodynamic Approach, by developing and demonstrating a relational model of supervision. They trace the history of psychoanalytic supervision and identify three essential dimensions: the nature of the supervisor's authority, the data focused on, and the supervisor's participation. Using these constructs, they review what they consider to be the major models of supervision--from the patient-centered 'classical' model to the different therapist-centered models focusing on learning, empathy, or anxiety. Frawley-O'Dea and Sarnat go on to systematically develop a relational model of supervision and address important aspects of the relationship, such as the distribution of power and authority, regression, the teach/treat boundary, and parallel process. Along the way, they provide a great many supervisory vignettes that enliven the book and demonstrate their approach....careful readers, even tho
