We plan six supervision groups, with two supervisors per each group. We believe that supervision could be a valuable experience to reflect upon the client and the role of the therapist from a number of different perspectives. Also, analyzing the multicontextuality of psychotherapy process without expecting the ultimate or the most efficient solution could be inspirational. Supervisee may present material from or outside the NEST program. In each case, please come prepared to avoid ad hoc presentation of the therapy material.

Registration for workshops and supervision on the DAY of ARRIVAL for the conference.

Friday celebration

Our evening celebration will be full of games, singing and small talks. Please feel free to bring any spécialité de la maison from your country or region. Participants from each country are encouraged also to prepare a short artistic program.
