CULTURALLY SENSITIVE CLINICAL SUPERVISION
Trainer: Natalie Contreras, LPC
December 6th, 2016 10 am – 4 pm Denville, NJ
♦Target audience is social workers and counselors of intermediate and advanced skill levels.
Culturally-sensitive supervision is a valuable vehicle for increasing understanding between supervisor/supervisee and supervisee/client, while validating different ways of “knowing” the world. Using a theoretical framework that views supervision through a multicultural lens can broaden the experience for supervisors and supervisees while positively impacting case outcome.
The goal of this workshop is to integrate multicultural perspectives and explore supervisor awareness of cultural values and biases. The supervisee’s worldview will also be discussed. Participants will gain knowledge on actively attending to cultural issues in supervision, while increasing supervision skills to create a positive supervisory relationship.
Workshop Objectives: By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
♦ Describe the difference between cultural sensitivity and cultural reciprocity;
♦ List culturally effective supervision strategies,
♦ Discuss a theoretical framework to explore and integrate multicultural perspectives,
♦ Identify cultural values and biases in self, and
♦ Demonstrate culturally sensitive skills in supervision.
