Supervision of Supervision: How Many Mirrors do We Need?

Anne Power

This paper explores the purpose and process of supervision of supervision and considers reservations about its usefulness. Relevant research which might inform the use of supervision of supervision is described and discussed. Three vignettes explore how a relational model of supervision of supervision can support supervisors when the supervision relationship is in trouble; in the examples of group supervision the group dynamics are considered. The three dyads involved in the supervisory chain are discussed in terms of their couple dynamics. The role of holding and containing by both the supervisor and the consultant are discussed.
