SF-PPTP SUPERVISION

Weekly individual supervision with experienced clinicians is fundamental to the SF-PPTP training experience. Each trainee completes at least 18 months of supervision, with a minimum of two supervisors, each dedicated to one case only. This in-depth supervision focuses on individual growth by fostering each trainee’s unique skills and working through the specific challenges encountered in each case. All supervision focuses on work with patients who are attending psychotherapy at least once per week, and at least six months of supervision are focused on a patient attending twice per week or more.

SF-PPTP’s list of supervisors includes clinicians throughout the Bay Area, Peninsula, and the Sacramento and Davis areas. Supervision fees are separate from tuition and are determined on a case-by-case basis according to our sliding scale guidelines (the suggested supervision fee is 50% of what the patient is paying per session, within a range of $50-$125 per supervision session).

Supervision sessions are scheduled at a date, time, and place (virtual or in the supervisor’s office) agreed upon by the supervisory pair.   .

SF-PPTP supervision is not intended to provide caseload oversight, but is focused solely on furthering each trainee’s education as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Supervision is a required component of the SF-PPTP program, and students enrolled in SF-PPTP must be working in a clinical setting where they can see adult patients in open-ended psychotherapy at a frequency of one to two times per week. Foundations students have the option to participate in the Supervision component of training and are encouraged to do so; however, supervision is not required for Foundations students.
