Feminist and liberatory perspectives on psychotherapy supervision: Empowerment, not shame (January 30 – February 7, Beersheva Israel)

This intensive course will introduce students to feminist and liberatory models of psychotherapy practice as they apply to supervision of counselors and therapists at any stage of professional development. We will discuss common challenges and pitfalls inherent in attempting to create an egalitarian, liberatory relationship in an evaluative setting, and explore together how to develop styles of supervising that reflect those values. Students should come prepared to engage in practice supervision with one another during the course. This course is suitable for both aspiring and experienced psychotherapy/counseling supervisors. Students should have at least three years of experience as a counselor/psychotherapist post graduate degree. This course will be offered entirely in English, but handouts in Hebrew and a Hebrew transcript of the teaching video will be available.
