»We have often found that when supervisees bring to supervision their concerns about what intervention to use they get stuck in dualistic thinking. They will make statements that we term ‘either-or-isms’ such as:
- I either have to confront his controlling behavior or put up with it.
- I didn’t know whether to wait a bit longer, or interpret his silence as his aggression towards me.
- I don’t know whether to continue working with him. […]
The job of the supervisor is to avoid the trap of helping the supervisee evaluate between these two choices, but to point out that they have reduced numerous possibilities to only two.«
