One of the biggest barriers to my own learning, at times, was not being aware of my defensiveness to feedback. Defensiveness, even if it is subtle, can be displayed verbally and nonverbally. Becoming more aware of my body language, facial expressions, tone, and engagement with supervisors has helped me facilitate the learning process. Often, when a supervisor would point out that a technique or intervention was not helpful with a patient, I would feel shame or inadequacy. When accepting constructive and/or negative feedback from supervisors, I found it helpful to remind myself about the concept of mindfulness as described by Marcia Linehan, who defines it as “paying attention, in a particular way, on purpose, to just the current moment, nonjudgmentally.” The Zen concept of Beginner’s Mind, which is to remain humble and suspend judgment while learning from the supervisor, can allow us to grow and experience new possibilities. Maintaining openness, curiosity, flexibility, and the process of involved listening is paramount. Ideally, a willingness to share mistakes, problems, thoughts, and feelings can lead to a deeper learning experience in supervision.
