An article by Fort Hays State University's Dr. Carrie Nassif, associate professor of psychology and staff psychologist at the Kelly Center, was recently accepted for publication in a future issue of the Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy.
Nassif served as the lead author in collaboration with Stefan E. Schulenberg, professor of psychology at the University of Mississippi; Robert R. Hutzell, psychologist in Knoxville, Iowa; and Julius Rogina, psychologist in private practice in Nevada.
The article, "Clinical Supervision and Logotherapy: Discovering Meaning in the Supervisory Relationship," explored the implementation of logotherapeutic principles within the context of clinical supervision. Clinical supervision refers to the process by which practicing psychotherapists and therapists in training receive guidance and feedback from more experienced mentors. In logotherapy, the primary motivational force in human beings is seen as a search for a meaning in life.
As a professor in the Psychology Department, Nassif teaches graduate courses in psychotherapy and couples therapy and provides clinical supervision to graduate students in clinical psychology.
