Supervision is a crucial part of the psychoanalytic formation. Since the first days of institutionalised psychoanalytic training, supervision has been made a requirement, although there has been a lively debate ever since as to what the aims of supervision actually are. This series of seminars offer an introduction to the fundamental questions of supervision in the psychoanalytic tradition, combining historical perspectives with contemporary debates and clinical examples.
