Rereading a training experience: verification by means of the clinical report.

Antonella Giornetti, Maria Francesca Loporcaro, Maria Sarubbo


In this article we are going to propose a mode of verification in the training of clinical psychologists, springing from a training experience that we, authors of the present article, took part in. 
We feel that reporting our experience to an external interlocutor will enable us to work out categories that can also make the training process comprehensible and usable for those who did not participate in it. Our hypothesis is that reporting provides a way out of the self-centeredness of private experience and makes the issues that emerged the focus of reflection, discussion and debate.
The experience we are referring to was a training course in “Fundamentals of Analysis of the demand in consultations with organisations and individuals” during which we experienced a methodology based on theory of relationship (Carli & Paniccia, 2003). In this theoretical model the relationship with the trainer is envisaged as a place of exploration and re-narration, insofar as it is the emotional precipitate of the problems faced by the psychologist in relating to his/her clients (Carli & Paniccia, 1991). The aim of the training is to acquire the competence of creating psychological categories, as keys for interpretation and intervention in professional contexts, starting from an understanding of the emotions involved in the relationship.
