Supervison Overview – What to expect in these two semesters?

A semester of supervision comprises five group meetings, each lasting four working hours. Typically, these meetings occur on the Sunday following the theory weekend, spanning from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
During these sessions, participants present their supervision examples for discussion.

How do I find a supervision topic?

How do I find a supervision topic?

How can I find a supervision topic? For those working in therapy or counseling, it’s relatively straightforward as they encounter numerous themes in their daily professional lives. However, we also welcome any questions or issues arising from everyday life, whether in business, work, school, community, clubs, or elsewhere.


You can uncover topics by reading newspapers and encountering local human dramas, conflict situations, or exemplary actions. For instance, a Greek teacher once delved into myths and discovered timeless human issues.


You can also explore the life stories of individuals portrayed in film or literature.


Additionally, you can work on your own logotherapy project within a meditation circle or community group.

You have the option to present a successful or unsuccessful case study, a planned future intervention, or a logotherapeutic commentary on a topic.


The essence of all these topics should center around applied logotherapy, integrating theoretical knowledge with real-life situations or fundamental human questions. With a solid theoretical background, you should demonstrate your ability to connect your knowledge with practical inquiries.

At least one week before the supervision session, you’ll submit your topic. You’ll introduce the theme you’ve been working on and illustrate how you’ve connected it with elements of logotherapy.


Please include two short or longer sections for this purpose, and feel free in their design. It’s crucial that you provide enough foundational information so that our meeting can immediately dive into a meaningful discussion based on your input.


Two main points should be prepared:


  1. A diagnostic examination of the topic, perhaps including the history of a mental illness or an analysis of the chosen issue. It’s essential to clarify: What precisely is the problem requiring a solution?


  1. The next step is: How can the problem be improved or solved using elements/methods/focus/thought from logotherapy? What assistance can be offered, and what solutions are suggested?


These two main points should be present in all materials submitted for group supervision, as they demonstrate precisely how Logo theory intersects with real-life situations.


As you open your „logotherapeutically trained eyes,“ you’ll soon realize that the world is brimming with topics where we can contribute from a logotherapy perspective. You’ll also encounter a plethora of human destinies and life stories to which logotherapy offers helpful, healing insights.

I wish this extraordinary project much success!

In my opinion, the semester is well structured with 40 chapters. Since I had my own recordings, I could see how little the online format differs from the face-to-face event. Theoretical explanations are also illustrated here with examples, and personal encounters and impressions are reflected, making what is presented seem lively. The only thing that is no longer necessary is to ask personal questions for understanding. However, this is compensated by the possibility of interrupting passages and listening to what happened before again. Being able to integrate the “lecture time” into my everyday life makes it easy for me to pursue further training or qualifications alongside my job and family.

The videos have wonderful didactic clarity. But they require concentrated listening. More difficult learning content offers the opportunity to watch it repeatedly as well as to pause the lecture for deeper contemplation. The presentation by Dr. Schönfeld takes place in an approachable liveliness. There's no other way to say it. The videos are a substantial tool if you want to delve deeper into logotherapy.
