Culturally Relevant Supervision: Ethical PracticeCourses
This course focuses on culture as a lens through which we view supervision. Culture is broadly defined to include race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, mental or physical ability, social class, body size and religious identification. The course explores ways to increase supervisor cultural awareness by describing a societal power grid, a social class training exercise and the concept of microaggressions as applied to race, sexual orientation and disability. An extensive case example is offered as a means to developing culturally relevant supervision. Attention to ethical practice is reflected in each section with emphasis on boundaries, self-disclosures and power dynamics within supervision.
