Title : Tracking the trainnees’ course : from the linear « correct » to the sircular « it depends »

Presenter : Maria Pirounaki-Lioni

Training in Systemic and Family Psychotherapy is a complex challenge both for the trainer and the trainee. Besides the organized process of training, comprised of a multiplicity of both theoretical and experiential topics, tasks, activities during the four-years of training, there is a less tangible, yet stronger and deeper process which seems to track the route, covered by each trainee and the whole group. This obscure process emerges in the course of supervision through the issues raised. In this brief communication, we sketch the development of the three groups of trainees into systemic psychotherapy graduates, through the main issues raised and elaborated in their group supervision.
