Nancy McWilliams: Seminar 2

Supervision and ‘Vital Signs’

Seminar Description:

This seminar will focus on "vital signs" in patients that psychoanalytic supervisors teach their supervisees to monitor. While researchers tend to use symptom-reduction as the criterion of improvement in psychotherapy, psychoanalysts focus on areas like attachment security, sense of agency, maturational progress, flexibility of coping, affect tolerance, self-esteem regulation, capacity for self-reflection and mentalization, and other areas of overall psychological functioning. We will look at the process of helping supervisees to get a broader and more in-depth understanding of the healing process than what they currently tend to be taught in their pre-psychoanalytic training.

She is author of Psychoanalytic Diagnosis (1994, rev. ed. 2011), Psychoanalytic Case Formulation (1999), and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (2004) and Psychoanalytic Supervision (expected publication September 2021) and is associate editor of both editions of the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (2006, 2017). A former president of Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) of the American Psychological Association, she has been featured in three APA videos of master clinicians.
