Clinical Consultation

What is consultation at IPI?

Consultation (also known as supervision) is integral to the practice of psychotherapy.  Consultation brings to life the theories of analytic treatment in the context of our clinical experience.  The consultor carefully attends to the consultee's description of her patient, addresses the therapeutic relationship, and reflects on the consultory relationship.  

Why might I want consultation?

No matter how long we have been doing psychotherapy, we seek consultation and supervision because it improves our skills and supports our self care in what can be an isolating and stressful profession.

How is consultation arranged at IPI?

Consultation may be provided individually, in pairs, or in small groups, once a week in person, on the phone, or on secure video. 

What does the consultee need to do?

The consultee brings process notes or vignettes as a basis for arriving at an understanding of the therapeutic process.  Consultor and consultee engage in a joint endeavor, building mutual respect, and submitting the teaching and learning to mutual evaluation.  

How do I know if I want consultation?

You can contact any of the IPI faculty who offer a free consultation and try it out. (See list below).

Do I have to be enrolled in an IPI program?

If you are enrolled in an IPI program that requires consultation, your program chair will arrange for you to have consultation with members of that faculty.  For details, you can look under the relevant program tab on this website.  But you don’t have to be enrolled in a program.

If I just want consultation, what do I do?

For an introductory experience of consultation at IPI for anyone not currently in consultation and not enrolled in an IPI program, please contact any member of the IPI faculty, many of whom offer six months (25  sessions) of low-cost consultation (at approximately $75/session). All consultators set their own fees, on a sliding scale. (See list below).

How do I choose a consultor?

Any IPI faculty member you choose to contact will help you choose the right consultor for you. Please contact us if you have any questions.
