Geraldine Pederson-Krag

Group supervision of group psychotherapists demonstrates group dynamics: reactions to fellow supervisors are used as equivalents of free associations and reveal intragroup transferences, multiple resistances, and interlocking ego defenses. Demonstrations of underlying negative reactions to each other heighten awareness of uneasiness in group patients due to fear of exposure and to competition for and with the supervisor. Analytic techniques are used to illustrate the group in action rather than to work out individual problems and conflicts. Since countertransference is a major source of difficulty in group therapy, the author helps her supervisors overcome their timidity in revealing their overinvolvement with their patients. She dilutes their defensiveness by defining countertransference as the therapist's unconscious reactions to the patients' material, to his own uncontrolled needs, and to neurotic projections. As the supervisor reacts to the revelation of neurotic entanglements as an expression of confidence and a valuable contribution to learning, the supervisee will feel less criticized. Psychoanalysis is not only a psychotherapy but a body of knowledge that can be used most effectively in teaching and supervision, lending itself dynamically to group supervision of group psychotherapy.
