ANSE Journal


The online ANSE Journal of Supervision and Coaching.

One of the major objectives of ANSE is to promote and, wherever possible, facilitate cross border contacts. Actually, it is our core business, because, quite like in supervision or coaching, communication is the alpha and omega of the ANSE community. It is, so to speak, our natural habitat.

In the midst of our ever-evolving world, characterized by perpetual change and chaotic conditions, the recent
ANSE Summer University in Budapest was a resounding success. Organized by the European Association for
Supervision and Coaching (ANSE), this event marked its 20th anniversary, and it was hosted by the Hungarian
Association of Supervisors and Supervisor-Coaches (MSZCT), in collaboration with Károli Gáspár University of the
Reformed Church (KRE).

Learning from mistakes and failure is an essential part of personal growth and development. It is often said that we learn more from our failures than from our successes because mistakes provide us with valuable feedback and insights that we can use to improve our future performance. Professional failures can be unpleasant and demotivating, but they are also an important opportunity for personal and professional growth...

You probably haven’t missed it, but when still in doubt you might remember this happy fact from our previous issue: ANSE is 25 years young this year. We joyfully celebrated this in different ways, such as in Riga, during the ably organized ANSE  Summer University of 2022.

......The topic of this issue is history. But what is history? There are many academic papers on the nature of history, but in the end most of these seem to boil down to this: history is something that is ‘made’ today, recorded tomorrow and reflected on the day after, if at all. History itself is subject to history – or to be more precise – historiography is historical and thus subject to debate today, recording tomorrow and reflection the day after......

......Diversity is not a local hype, a fancy upper middle class pre-occupation or a passing fad, it is part of the human condition. Not only is it a matter of class, age, sex, gender or ethnicity, but just as well of history, lifestyle, religion, education and of political and moral convictions, traditions and value systems. And not to forget of the impact of geography, climate and the accessibility of water and food. All these factors shape our diverse social, economic and political arrangements, our family and kinship structures and our individual sense of self. All these factors permeate every aspect and every minute of our daily life. It could be said that nothing is more communal than the ever so highly revered ‘personal identity’ of the individual........

......Threatened by corona, the world changed. Everything turned topsy turvy. All of a sudden it proved practically impossible to do even the simplest things and to perform even the most ordinary everyday tasks. Shopping, enjoying a cappuccino on a sidewalk café, picking a flic at the local cinema, visiting friends, meeting your lover (furtively or overtly), going to school, taking part in conferences or travelling to ANSE meetings; all of this and much more slipped out of our reach. All that we so easily took for granted turned out to be potentially corrupt, a source of contamination, a threat to our health.......

......Trust, it would appear, is no longer self-evident. In the past, so they say, people ‘knew their place’ and more or less blindly trusted and followed the leaders of their particular social group, class or political party. Nowadays trust seems to have turned into work. Trustworthiness must be demonstrated by, for example, transparency, authenticity, openness and integrity, all of which need guidance by codes of conduct and action protocols, and documentary proof by audits and visitation reports........

......We are really proud to present ANSE Journal Volume 4 – 2020 – Issue 1 with the title “Reflection and reflective learning”. As we all know, reflection is one of the core competences in supervision. Without reflection, there wouldn’t be a learning process. And so, it is in our editorial board. While we were finishing the latest issue of the journal last October, .......

…. was this year’s theme of ANSE Summer University in Bolzano Italy from 25th until 29th of August. It was a relevant and up to date theme, as we find ourselves more confronted with tension of separation and polarization in our society. Because we as supervisors are confronted in our work with clients, it is why it is important to discuss these topics here in the context of Supervision. – whether on a personal, ethical or political level in national organisations.

....After the ANSE board was elected during the General Assembly in Budapest in October 2018, we had to divide tasks into our portfolio. We took a whole day in January to do this and Agnes put her name immediately at this task but Reijer Jan didn’t feel any challenge to write or to publish articles. Reijer Jan checked what tasks he really would like to do, but also posted his name to tasks with not so many names on it.....

....This is the topic of the 2nd ANSE Journal. After the first topic “Quality”, to immediately draw attention to the political and social responsibility of supervision - too detached? We think and hope that the articles in this issue will stimulate reflection on one’s own attitude to the subject, collegial exchange and discussion in many places with different people. “Talking is working on the meaning of situations; understanding is grasping a situation in its meaning.” ....

....Central to our mission is – to quote from our Policy Plan – ‘the cross border exchange of information on professional developments between our National Organisations, training institutes and sister organisations, as well as the cross border exchange of professional knowledge and experience between practitioners.’ Obviously, communication and exchange are prerequisite to freely share information on supervision, coaching and consultancy, and – not to forget – to the (further) development and implementation of (European) quality standards....
