“Why, When and What: Supervision and the Practitioner’s Resistance”


A Seminar on Supervision in the Lacanian Orientation

with Gustavo Dessal

Why should we, from time to time, remind ourselves of the crucial importance of supervision? Everyone agrees that analytical training is inconceivable without personal analysis. And, at least in theory, nobody is unaware of the importance of supervision. But in practical terms, analysts do not seem to admit the latter to the same extent, or at the same level. If Lacan once said that ‘there is no other resistance than the analyst’s’, should we not extend this “quip” also to supervision?
