A Common Approach for Clinical Supervision in Psychotherapy and Medicine: The Person Centred and Experiential Model

Callifronas MD, Montaiuti C and Nina E

For over 50 years common supervisory models are being proposed that can be used for different therapeutic approaches. Amongst them two categories are of major interests in order to build a common supervisory approach: structured and developmental models. In the present article we propose a unified model based in person-centred and experiential principles, also integrating principles from structured and developmental models. It can be used for supervision with practitioners originating from a number of modalities, who have completed their studies in psychotherapy and have (at least) some professional experience. The different supervisory details for each therapeutic approach are discussed. Special attention is given to the implementation of the person-centred and experiential model in medical and health settings, where the risk for compassion, fatigue, stress and burnout is important. In the present review we propose the person centred and experiential model as an appropriate common model for efficient supervision with psychotherapy and medicine professionals.
