Analytic theorists have highlighted the significant contribution of the affirming and validating gaze of caretakers to the personal and relational development of those in their care. In contrast to this perspective, scholars have also suggested that the caretaker’s gaze might objectify, shame, dominate, and debilitate these individuals, especially when they cannot reciprocate the gaze.

Hanoch will examine the meaning of both the affirming and the ominous aspects of the gaze in supervision, where supervisees present intimate therapeutic interactions, whereas supervisors, who closely observe their supervisees’ work, usually refrain from sharing such interactions. The second part of this Masterclass will consist of questions and a discussion.

Hanoch Yerushalmi, Ph.D. is a consultant to the Psychoanalytic Social Work Journal, USA, and last September guest-edited a special issue on supervision for the American Journal of Psychoanalysis. He is a Clinical Psychologist and a Professor Emeritus at the Department of Community Mental Health of the University of Haifa, Israel. He has formerly been the Director of the Student Counselling Centre and a Senior Lecturer at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Prof. Yerushalmi served as a consultant to psychotherapy centres in Israel, the USA and Central America and has published numerous articles on relational psychoanalytic therapy, supervision and therapists’ development, crisis and growth, and psychiatric rehabilitation. This Masterclass is based on a paper he is having published by American Journal of Psychoanalysis, In Press.
