Beyond 101: Negotiating and Utilizing ‘Self’ in Supervisory Relationships: Intersections of Culture and Power

This course is designed to help practitioners understand the cultural and power dynamics inherent to the supervisory relationship. We will explore research that illuminates the need to better understand the potential challenges and opportunities resulting from cross-cultural supervisory practice.

This course is intended for emerging and experienced clinical supervisors to support skill acquisition and implementation of strategies to support clinical development.

 

After completing this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Process identity development with other participants in terms of how this informs their work
  • Distinguish theoretical information about interculturalism and power and its correlation to practice
  • Experience models of practice and personal narrative that serve as tools for engaging difference
