Online – Supervision from the Soul: Supporting Clinicians in Trauma-Informed, Anti-Racist Counseling
This workshop aims to support supervisors in ongoing clinical training in our changing times. Offering a framework of trauma-informed and anti-racist counseling practices, we will develop a collaborative environment to discuss and explore the systemic issues that make it difficult, ways to dismantle oppressive constructs that inhibit both clinicians and their clients, and opportunities for ongoing collegial support to shift perceptions of hierarchy in the field.
Participation in and exploration of trauma-informed and anti-racist supervision and counseling–and understanding the history of white supremacy in the mental health field–is necessary for the evolution of ending systemic racism and oppression in the field of counseling.
Participants in this workshop will:
– Discuss the importance of cultivating a relational supervision practice in shifting perceptions of oppressive hierarchies in the field of counseling.
– Identify systemic issues and white supremacist ideals that make it difficult to offer anti racist and trauma-informed counseling practices
– Gain support in learning how to address anti-racism in supervision and counseling to create a safe and relevant experience for BIPOC counselors and clients.
