Practice Gap/Need and Course Description
While much has been written about therapists’ and analysts’ countertransferences, supervisors’ countertransferences remain under-recognized, their impact underappreciated, and the information they contain underutilized. Using examples from supervisory sessions, this presentation will identify external and internal sources of supervisors’ countertransferences and offer suggestions about how to better recognize and make use of them.

After attending this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Identify different sources of supervisory countertransferences
2. Discuss typical dynamics of supervisory countertransferences
3. Recognize three potential correctives for countertransferential blindspots
