Interacting Selves provides concepts and principles of personal and professional development (PPD) in training and supervision as part of an approach to lifelong learning for all those involved in psychotherapeutic work. Magnuson become more actively involved in planning aspects of your own PPD through first locating yourself within the historical thread of the significant supervisor/mentor relationships, theoretical and social/political perspectives that have shaped your professional development. The professional genogram is a way of making a similar type of examination of the multiplicity of relational, theoretical and other factors that shape a professional's approach to their practice over time. The approach to PPD is informed by systemic principles that help us integrate and unify our experiences of learning, development and improvement in the multiple professional roles. Learning has the potential to be transformational and to promote reflection, reflexivity, trust and effective problem-solving that is capable of creating new possibilities for practice and for life.
