The Jungian approach: in situ supervision of psychodrama

  • Maurizio Gasseau Leandra Perrotta


The authors present a Jungian psychodrama model of ‘in situ’ supervision where the supervisees have their work supervised on the spot in order to reflect on the multiplicity of processes inherent in a psychodrama group and learn from immediate experience. There are two co-psychotherapists in Jungian Psychodrama – a conductor and a narrator. The conductor directs the session whereas the narrator focuses on the group process, identifies the themes and restructures them into a newly integrated consciousness.
