Deconstructing Agnes – Externalization In Systemic Supervision
Published 2007 · Psychology
Externalization is seen in this paper as a valid and useful part of the process of clinical supervision in systemic family therapy training. We offer a discussion on the use of externalization based on an example from a supervision group on a London M.Sc. in Family Therapy. Externalizing practices are located in the context of a postmodern perspective and narrative ideas within systemic family therapy. We explore the use of narrative ideas and the recursive relationship between theory, practice and the subjective experience of the trainee, within the practice of systemic supervision.
