Miles To Go? Towards Relational Supervision Speaker: Judy Yellin

Leading Edges: Analytical Psychology

A Series of Talks Initiated by Dr. Gottfried M. Heuer in 2010

Tuesday 20 January 2015
Starting at 8.15pm

This paper, originally presented at the UKCP Supervision Conference in March 2013, explores the idea of ‘relational supervision’. What does it mean to supervise, or be supervised from, a relational stance as a psychotherapy practitioner? What are the challenges of relational supervision, what are its main tenets, and what prevents supervisors and supervisees from adopting a relational stance to both clinical work and supervision? The role of the ‘psychoanalytic superego’ is explored in the light of the historical ‘supervision trauma’ transmitted to later generations of psychoanalytic practitioners by the ruptured supervisory relationship between Freud and Ferenczi.

Biography: Judy Yellin trained as an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the Bowlby Centre, and works as an attachment-based relational psychotherapist in private practice. She is a supervisor and training therapist, and has taught extensively at the Bowlby Centre and other organisations. She currently teaches a relational third year module at the Minster Centre.

Judy is Secretary of The Relational School and a member of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP) & European Society for Trauma & Dissociation (ESTD). She is an Advanced Accredited Associate of Pink Therapy, an organisation working with gender and sexual diversity, offering affirmative psychotherapy to sexually diverse clients, as well as training for psychotherapists working with the LGBTQ communities. She is particularly interested in issues related to clinical work with trauma and dissociation, and their impact on the development of self.
