Supervision in the Bader-Pearson Developmental Model


Figuring out how to be the best and most effective couples therapist is an ongoing process. I have found in my own practice that as soon as I master one type of presenting problem, another, more complicated issue arises. It takes courage as a therapist to be willing to put your doubts and missteps out there for others to see. By having a trusted group of peers who are experiencing similar struggles can make it seem a whole lot less risky.

Our supervision group is open to suggestions from members about topics and themes that are of interest. Members may want to learn more about a certain developmental approach or want a deeper understanding of the integration of attachment theory, differentiation theory and the latest neuro-scientific findings. To learn more about this group, go to the Level 2/Advanced Supervision page and learn more.  Or click below to join now (or get on the waiting list if registration is closed).

“Thanks a million for a great supervision session! I learned a lot. My whole disposition with the client was different after that. It was a challenging session for sure, but it went so much better. I was very grateful for all the feedback you gave me.” _ Nicole McCleod, RCC.
