Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The present paper describes a model for supervision through co-therapy, developed in a training framework for interns of clinical psychology. The format presented includes a senior therapist and an intern as co-therapists. The model is conceptualized as one of participant supervision in psychodynamic psychotherapy. As such, the model is comprised of two elements. 1. Two therapists work together with one or more patient during a session. 2. The definition of the process as a supervisory situation, beyond the co-work in therapy of the two therapists. We offer the model as a significant and unique supplementary experience for both supervisor and supervisee. The supervisory process is based on the principle of "reflection in action," and the actual participation of both partners in the clinical work, facilitating their mutual growth.
