Issue 1

Editorial

This issue comprises a series of articles which describe specific approaches and techniques of training for use in the personal and professional development of trainees.  Mony Elkaim takes his influential concept of Resonance and shows how it can be used in training and supervision. He describes resonance as the bridge between therapist and clients, which in his article is applied to supervision in terms of the different levels of worldview. As always his concepts are brought to life through vivid specific examples.

Next, Kyriaki Polychroni, Georgos Gournas & Dionyssis Sakkas offer a detailed account of the experiential approach to training of the Anthropos Institute in Athens. In the course of the group processes they describe, trainees come to recognise their own inner voices and, from there, come to a more differentiated sense of self. The progression of work from individual, through small groups to the large group, underpins a well-specified progression of training towards personal growth which is then illustrated through an account of the “SCIT” technique conducted during the Rhodes workshop.

Haviva Ayal and Sara Ivanir report a survey of their colleagues and students of what makes an effective therapist and use this material as a basis for an imaginative use of metaphors that describe their approach to training. Among many insightful ideas, central to the whole of this Volume, is that we are training therapists for what they are, not for what they do. Bogdan De Barbaro and Lucyna Drożdżowicz tackle issues that will be familiar to all trainers. They suggest ways to identify and work with trainees who are ‘too easy’, swallowing the ideas but not changing other than superficially; and trainees who resist the new ideas because they conflict with their existing self-definitions.

Next we move to a description by Eric Trappeniers of his “Experiential Systemic Approach”. This paper, which was presented at the Rhodes Conference with extensive use of video, uses the training technique of role play. Mony Elkaim demonstrates Eric’s approach to training by providing an extensive commentary to indicate the significance of his therapeutic methods. Finally, Noga Nabarro provides her analysis of 10 characteristics of ‘masterful therapists’ and then describes some of the methods that she employs to nurture these characteristics. As an example of a training structure she offers the “Sequential Preventive Meta-Consultation Model”, giving us a detailed insight into the ways that she fosters advanced abilities.
