ANSE Summer University 2025 – An Ocean of Possibility

August 18-22, 2025 – Munich Germany

Supervision inhabits the charged space between major issues (values, attitude, power, transformation, democracy, diversity, etc.) and practical tools of the trade (clarification of the assignment, working relationship, communication, intervention, contract, fees). As supervisors, we think about the world, society, organizations, roles and people. At the same time, we engage in exceedingly practical activity in our attempts to develop and implement useful interventions for our supervisees and clients.

Between thinking and acting truly lies an ocean.

At the ANSE Summer University 2025, we intend to explore the shores of this ocean and dive into its depths.

  • From the shore of thought…

What social, political, fundamental questions are we supervisors concerned with when looking at the world, Europe and the various countries? What concerns us? Of this, what is important for our profession?

  •  …across the ocean…

How does all this affect our inner work as supervisors? How do we manage the complexity? Where do we navigate safely on the high seas and where are there cliffs or shoals? Where do we feel competent and powerful? Where do we feel overwhelmed and powerless?

  • …to the shore of action.

How does the big picture ultimately reveal itself in the concrete details? Which questions do I ask and which do I not? Which interventions, which working methods (still) work and which don‘t (any longer)? How is the practice changing and in which ways should it remain the same?

We invite participants to reflect on this together and to experience practical handholds – with thoughts and actions.

This Summer University will also be a milestone as the first ANSE SU in Germany so far.

Join the Summer University in Munich – let’s get together in 2025!
Call for workshops: 1st of July until 1st of October
