The article aims to provide the reader with an overview of the training experience as it is lived within the COIRAG School of Specialization in Psychotherapy in Padua. This was followed by the points of view of students, supervisors and teachers with the aim of describing their summit observation of psychotherapy training. It is known that the theoretical teaching taking place within psychotherapy training can be described as working on the borderline between knowledge and procedure, or between what should be done and what then actually happens in clinical experience. In a context of social and political changes, a Specialization school study plan should take into account the changes taking place, and it is precisely within this process of change that the sense of being together as a group arises, teachers and students in COIRAG, at the COIRAG headquarters in Padua, in the school’s new education system.
Keywords: Group, training, supervision, changes, psychotherapy, theory-procedure.
