ANSE Summer University is organized from August 14-18, 2023 in Budapest, Hungary. 

The Hungarian Association of Supervisors and Supervisor-Coaches (MSZCT), together with Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church (KRE),  is organising the 10th ANSE Summer University  in 2023 in Budapest, Hungary. 

About the theme “With Words and Beyond – Values and Identity in an Incomprehensible World”: 

We live in an age of permanent change, and it is impossible to grasp and understand the events of the present. Day by day we could meet  situations in which conditions aren’t simply unstable, they are chaotic. The future is completely unpredictable. The more we try to understand what is happening, the more we feel anxious and overwhelmed. The world around us is incomprehensible. 

All of this increasingly makes us to question our basic values, even our identity, and it is almost inevitable that we must rethink our actions and attitudes. 

On the one hand, this developing crisis of identity and values is unsettling. It makes easy to fall back on schemes, and prejudices can become stronger. But on the other hand, it also holds opportunities – new approaches and new values can be born, potential to move forward, redesigning and development can open. 

This raises several questions for supervision: 

  • How can supervision help us to find our own approach to the incomprehensible world? 
  • What helps us to find values we can identify with in the face of uncertainty? In line with this, how can we be authentic in our own identity as supervisors? And how can we help the individuals and organisations that come to us? 
  • What can we do about the effects of the negative news that overwhelm us? How can we get to breathe under the enormous negative pressure? 
  • What can support us to stay mentally healthy? 

Some things can be captured with words, and some things are best expressed and experienced without words. The significance of “beyond words” is growing, and it is important to find other modalities to hold on to in this increasingly incomprehensible world.  

About the location: 

SU2023 will be held in Budapest, Hungary. Budapest is a sparkling European city where different cultures meet. The event will take place in the central building of Károli Gáspár University, Faculty of Humanities, in the centre of Budapest. (Address: 1088 Budapest, Reviczky street 6. Hungary) 

The importance of the occasion: 

The 2023 Summer University will also be a jubilee meeting: 20 years ago, the first summer university was held in Salgótarján, Hungary. In addition, this is also the 10th ANSE Summer University. 

Let’s celebrate together in 2023 in Budapest!
