Online – Clinical Supervision: Explorations in Cultural Humility

This workshop for clinical supervisors will explore aspects of cultural humility in the practice of clinical supervision. Cultural humility is a practice for understanding and developing a process-oriented approach to competency, described as the “ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented (or open to the other) in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the [person]”.
Participants will discuss some of the many ways that our own histories and backgrounds–both personal and professional–affect participants in clinical supervision. We will explore how the positive development of self-awareness and knowledge, the development and use of person-of-the supervisor skills, and increased attentive diligence may help to deepen our supervisory practices.
Participants can expect to engage in active dialogue and exploration of our shared and personal definitions of culture. We will discuss the ways culture is both visible and invisible, and the many assumptions professionals make in clinical supervisory interactions and relationships.
Throughout this workshop, participants will:
– Gain understanding of the core principles of humility in clinical supervision practices (Self-awareness, Knowledge and Skill).
– Learn and discuss the distinctions between developing multicultural competence and maintaining a multicultural orientation.
– Explore aspects of power and privilege in clinical supervisory relationships.
– Learn and apply the definition of supervisor humility.
– Discover the practical aspects of supervisory humility (Relational, Cultural, Intellectual).
– Increase awareness of the ways humility can fortify the supervisory working alliance.
– Explore the concepts related to the “Iceberg of Culture”.
– Re-image our own cultures through exploring regional language identifiers.
