Supervision: Cultural Awareness to Multicultural Competence

Virtual Training Class!

This 2-day workshop identifies critical knowledge, behavioral aspects and practice strategies for successful multicultural supervision. The course incorporates an entire session on the understanding and practice of cultural humility as part of the multicultural competency growth process.  It addresses diversity and the range of attitudes, values, and assumptions that are based on diverse ethnic, gender, racial, cultural and other interpersonal differences that facilitate or impede effective supervisor-supervisee interactions and successful relationship outcomes. The presentation includes didactic and experiential learning opportunities with a focus on:

  • Defining and applying the concept of cultural humility in clinical practice and supervision
  • Understanding self-reflection processes and identification of interpersonal multicultural sensitivity
  • Identifying evidence-based multicultural communication awareness and skills including age cohort generational variables.
  • Identifying and applying key theoretical concepts of multicultural competence perspectives
  • Providing strategic supervision practice strategies to enhance multicultural supervision processes and competence.
