Workshop
2:00 - 4:00 pm
St. John's Presbyterian Church, East Bay

We invite you to join our informal, dynamic conversation with Betsy Kassoff, Audrey Martin, and Tom Wooldridge. If you’re considering registering for the upcoming ISG in the fall, this introductory conversation is an opportunity to engage with thoughtful community members, enjoy a prelude to the year’s ISG, and bring your questions and comments about the topic to the instructors.

In the coming Intensive Study Groups, we will investigate theoretical approaches and practical engagements with the body in the clinical setting. Topics such as gender and culture, self-harm, sexuality, dissociation, and the language of bodily experience will be discussed.

Workshop
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
St. John's Presbyterian Church, East Bay

This course focuses on the use of self — both psychologically and socioculturally. It frames supervision as a mutual endeavor between two socioculturally located, and therefore conditioned, participants that impact one another and the supervisee’s work, both consciously and unconsciously. Every human relationship contains the possibility of shame, envy, competition, negation, and conscious and unconscious power dynamics. These feelings and dynamics surface in the transference-countertransference within the supervisee’s work as a therapist and between the supervisory dyad or group. The use of self-inquiry, compassion, and cultural humility in examining these patterns is demonstrated and explored in this seminar-style course.
