Clinical Supervision: Conversations Between a Psychoanalyst and a Gestalt Therapist

11 September, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

$80 – $160

Led by Donna Orange, Ph.D and Lynne Jacobs, Ph.D.

This didactic and experiential workshop will present some ideas that Donna and Lynne each hold regarding the practice of supervision. The format will include brief lectures on various topics they find important in their supervision and consulting work. Also included will be live supervision followed by discussion of supervisory themes that can be derived from the live demonstration. Finally, there will also be some small “break-out” group experiences.


Donna Orange, Ph.D. – Educated in philosophy, clinical psychology and psychoanalysis, Donna Orange, PhD, PsyD teaches at NYU Postdoc (New York); IPSS (Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York); ISIPSé (Roma and  Milano); and in private study groups. She also offers clinical consultation/supervision in these institutes as well as at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis (Los Angeles). In addition to authoring numerous articles, her most recent books are Thinking for Clinicians: Philosophical Resources for Contemporary Psychoanalysis and the Humanistic Psychotherapies (2010), The Suffering Stranger: Hermeneutics for Everyday Clinical Practice (2011), and Nourishing the Inner Life of Clinicians and Humanitarians: The Ethical Turn in Psychoanalysis (2015).

Lynne Jacobs, Ph.D. lives in two psychotherapy worlds. She is co-founder of the Pacific Gestalt Institute and also a Training and Supervising analyst at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles. She is co-author (with Rich Hycner), of The Healing Relationship in Gestalt Therapy: A Dialogic / Self Psychology Approach (1995). She and Hycner co-edited Relational Perspectives in Gestalt Therapy (2010). She has also written numerous articles for gestalt and for psychoanalytic publications. She has abiding interests in furthering our understanding of relational factors in the therapy process, and in understanding the centrality of Euro-ethnicity and its implications for clinical work.
