Supervision groups often experience parallels between the group process (of the supervision group) and the clinical case being presented (the supervised group), enriching the supervision group experience as well as helping the presenter.

Verbal attacking is an inevitable and sometimes destructive process in the group setting. Simultaneously, anger and conflict also hold valuable therapeutic potential.  In this presentation, Dr. Black suggests that instead of being avoided or overly regulated, verbal attacks may be leveraged clinically to stimulate meaningful developmental progress and emotional maturation.
