Project Description

For this inaugural UKCP Supervision Conference I prepared this presentation, extending the established notion of parallel process (how the dynamic between client and therapist is reflected and replicated between therapist and supervisor) by three significant steps: how the dynamic between client and therapist parallels an internal dynamic in the client's inner world, how that parallels an internal body-mind dynamic and how this in turn parallels an early characterological dynamic in development. Parallel process can thus seen to be functioning as the relational 'glue' that ties otherwise fragmented aspects of a multi-dimensional system into a whole. The notion of parallel process, derived from supervision, can thus invigorate the practice of therapy itself, by grounding it in the fractal reality of the psyche and thus providing a 21st century framework for psychological practice. - see original blurb for more info
