Where do i even begin?
The basic issue is not that problems occur, but that when they do, a person generally forgets the rest of her or his life. The skill in supervision lies in remaining authentically connected to family therapist and to remind their supervisees to stay connected to their clients and themselves, and to notice and track when they have lost connection so they can bring themselves back to being fully present. The principle of sponsorship in supervision is the process by which family therapist connect with, touch, bless, provide place, and support a living presence to assume human value. Sponsorship in supervision is an act of compassion whereby the gift of life is honored by welcoming and holding unintegrated identities through the skills of deep listening, acceptance, proper naming, blessing, boundary setting, and skill building.
