After many years as supervisor to psychologists and other related groups I got an impulse to share some of my notices and ideas in a larger forum. There are many aspects in working with supervision. It is not my intention to overview this total area. I simply want to share experiences in using specific effective tools from my practice as supervisor.
This article addresses the need to develop ethical standards in the field of body psychotherapy. It is directed to those counsellors and psychotherapists who utilize somatic approaches in their practice as well as those in the larger psychotherapeutic community. The authors' intent is to expand the information available in the field, hopefully leading to increased awareness of ethical concerns and the development of appropriate ethical standards of practice.
