While the real relationship has long been addressed in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, the matter of the real relationship in psychotherapy supervision has yet to receive any attention. Ample supervisory focus has indeed been given to the working alliance and transference-countertransference configuration (including parallel processes), but after a… (More)
Corresponding to the four stages of the SCM, supervision environments/behaviors--which could be used to guide thinking about the supervision of psychotherapy supervisor trainees--have been proposed and described. The supervision environments are designed to match the particular needs of psychotherapy supervisors at the four SCM stages. From this presented… (More)
We present the complete genome sequence of Azospirillum brasilense Az39, isolated from wheat roots in the central region of Argentina and used as inoculant in extensive and intensive agriculture during the last four decades. The genome consists of 7.39 Mb, distributed in six replicons: one chromosome, three chromids, and two plasmids.
The growth of the psychotherapy supervisor has been a much neglected topic in the clinical supervision literature. In an effort to better address this area, a four-stage model of development through which psychotherapy supervisors generally are thought to pass has been proposed. To further flesh out this model and render its substance more explicit, this… (More)
Comments on the original article by Christopher et al. (see record 2014-20055-001) regarding cultural and folk psychologies. As noted by Christopher, Wendt, Marecek, and Goodman (2014), "U.S. psychology remains not only overwhelmingly U.S.- centric but also largely unaware of how its cultural roots shape theory and research.
Fifty mentally retarded adults were administered the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised (WAIS-R) on two separate occasions, with the mean amount of time between testings being 2 years, 8 months. The data were examined in an effort to study the test-retest reliability and stability of the WAIS-R with the mentally retarded. Based on correlational,… (More)
Over the course of psychotherapy supervision history, the supervisor-supervisee alliance has increasingly emerged as a variable of preeminent importance in the conceptualization and conduct of the supervision experience: It has come to be embraced as the very heart and soul of supervision. But after a half century, what evidence do we actually have to… (More)
What are some of the most recent, cutting-edge developments and innovations in psychotherapy supervision? And what is their particular significance for supervision now and into its future? In this special supervision issue of the American Journal of Psychotherapy, those questions are considered, and some compelling answers are provided. In what follows, I… (More)
Psychoanalytic supervision is moving well into its 2nd century of theory, practice, and (to a limited extent) research. In this paper, I take a look at the pioneering first efforts to define psychoanalytic supervision and its importance to the psychoanalytic education process. Max Eitingon, the "almost forgotten man" of psychoanalysis, looms large in any… (More)
While the constructs of the working alliance, parallel process, and countertransference have long had transtheoretical appeal for many supervision practitioners, what empirical data--quantitative or qualitative--are there that support their use in psychotherapy supervision? In this paper, I attempt to address that question by: (1) identifying empirical,… (More)
