The process of supervision may be exciting and challenging. When a supervisor and his supervisee look at a complex case, this comes along with a certain amount of tension. The supervisee feels vulnerable and hopes the supervisor will notice not only his limitations but also his strengths and capabilities. The supervisor is open and curious but also feels the pressure to add something valuable. In this article we propose a feedback oriented form of supervision. Its goal is to enhance the capacity of the supervisee for self-supervision by means of client and therapist feedback. A case example will illustrate the main ingredients of this feedback oriented supervision method.
