Lezing Lynne Jacobs: Emotional Process and Emotional Vulnerability in Supervision

One of the most valuable—and yet most vulnerable—dimensions of the supervision process is the work on our emotional process as therapists. When we find ourselves struggling in our work with patients, sometimes it is a result of a lack of understanding of the patients’ adaptive process, but more often it is from our own emotional reactivity and vulnerability that has been evoked as we work with a patient. Taking the risk to expose your vulnerability in supervision (which sometimes feels more frightening than exposing your vulnerability in therapy), builds the emotional resilience to work with patients whose adaptive processes pose difficulties for the therapist.
