Abstract/Book Review

The aim of this paper is to explore the relational aspect of supervision from a psychoanalytic perspective. Rationale: In keeping with a psychoanalytic approach, the relational aspect of supervision has been explored through experiential learning and recourse to the literature. Greek mythology has been used to stimulate reflection. Findings: The theoretical concepts of an internal supervisor, projective identification and containment have been used to describe how the supervisory relationship can support development and tolerating complexity and uncertainty. Limitations: This paper describes the author's experiential learning, informed by psychoanalytic theory, in reference to a particular supervisor-supervisee relationship. The argument is developed within this context. Conclusion: It is argued that, trans-theoretically, the relational aspect of supervision merits a greater emphasis in research, practice and professional guidelines.
