“Istitution’s dream” in the groups of supervision
We would like to take advantage of this meeting on dreams and the group to propose reflections relating to a particular working context with which we have been dealing in the last few years. We are referring to the supervisions carried out as external consultants in the mental health structures with groups of operators of the services. In fact “group supervision” has become a stable practice in many psychiatric services, starting off from the pilot experiments carried out by some of us in the early 1980s. Previous meetings of occasional consultation had occurred in certain groups, however in our opinion without taking their place in the working set-up and modalities of institutional supervision, as has been attempted and described precisely by certain of us (Tagliacozzo, 1989; Barnà, 1995; and Correale, 1995).
