White Society Colloquium: Presidential Address: What’s Personal in Supervision: The Supervisor’s Development
Presenter: Elizabeth Krimendahl, PsyD
Discussant: Jay Greenberg, PhD
How does one develop as a supervisor? Issues around personal, supervisory and institutional authority will be explored in the context of the supervisor’s ongoing development. What leads to change and how might these changes affect the supervisory interaction? How does becoming a parent, a more seasoned analyst, and assuming authority roles at one’s Institute affect these changes?
