Supervision of arousal and disgust

Abstract

We are writing this chapter in the contexts of our work as systemic psychotherapists, supervisors and supervisees, drawing on our practice as clinical psychologists in sexual health and child and adolescent medicine services within our public health service. This work often involves conversations with clients, supervisees and supervisors about intimate bodily experiences including sexual feelings and behaviour that can challenge our usual professional psychotherapy discourses. In supervision with us, supervisees from a range of services have presented both arousal and disgust as unwanted bodily sensations in relation to clients and have described difficulty “admitting” these feelings to themselves or supervisors. This chapter focuses on supervision practices we have developed to address strong bodily sensations and experiences of arousal and disgust in supervision conversations.
