In this paper, material is presented from supervision groups run for mental health professionals in different mental health settings. I will argue that a psychoanalytic framework, which puts the transference and countertransference at the centre of clinical practice, offers an important model for thinking about psychosis and psychotic means of communication. When staff are able to 'tune in' to their patients' communications it can help to change a patient's monologue about his/her delusional world into a meaningful dialogue about their emotional world.
