About the Training:

This training describes essential components of clinical supervision as defined by multiple mental health disciplines, the subsequent research on clinical supervision. Participants will learn the complexity of the multiple components of supervisor multicultural competence and cultural humility considering health equity. There will be an emphasis on multicultural identities and worldviews of all participants in the context of establishing the supervisory relationship, translation to the supervision contract, goal setting and anchored feedback. Impact of COVID-19, telesupervision, and emerging data on supervisee, supervisor, and client effective strategies will be discussed. Prevention of frequent supervisor errors and inadequate or even harmful supervision will be outlined. Discussion will focus on enhancing supervisor competence and managing countertransference and emotional reactivity.
