BORIS, Georges Daniel Janja Bloc. Sense's versions: a phenomenological-existential tool for the supervision of psychotherapists in training. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp. 165-180. ISSN 0103-5665.

The paper discusses, as a first step, dilemmas and conflicts of psychotherapists in training, proposing solution strategies for their overcoming. Psychotherapist's training is continuous and systematic, persisting along his/her professional lifetime. So, it is not a punctual and circumstantial training, made in an unique moment, even so in a significant one, as the last year of Psychology undergraduate degree. As a second step, the text discusses some tools usually used for the psychotherapist's training, specially the theoretical foundation, his/her own psychotherapy, as well the supervision of an experienced professional. In this way, the paper detaches the importance of supervision and, finally, it points out the benefits of adopting "sense's versions" (Amatuzzi, 1989; 1995; 2001) as an instrument for consolidating the first steps of psychotherapists in training. Using this method, he/she registers his/her impressions about him/herself, the client and/or their relationship, expressing his/her immediate experience as a person in that situation. Thereby, sense's versions constitute an objective and subjective tool that facilitates the supervision work because it may disclose several senses expressed by psychotherapists in training.
