The Essence of the Supervisory Relationship
Tamara L. Kaiser MSW, PhD, LICSW, LMFT
This workshop will introduce participants to a model of clinical supervision that focuses on the relationship between supervisor and supervisee.  The model addresses the context within which the supervision occurs, the goals of supervision, the process of accountability and the three primary aspects of the relationship: power and authority, shared meaning, and trust. The workshop will include lecture, video role plays and discussion. 
Part 2 | 12:45 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Advancing Liberation Through Cultural Humility and Anti-Oppressive Practices in Clinical Supervision
Rashida Fisher, PhD, LPCC, LADC
As clinical supervisors working in this current sociopolitical and sociocultural landscape, we must ensure counseling services are delivered from a culturally informed and social justice-informed perspective. This training explores ways to engage in meaningful assessment of supervisee self-awareness and cultural humility and methods to facilitate a conversation around cultural competence development. The purpose of this session is to review the ethical considerations related to culturally centered supervision and illuminates the importance of applying multicultural counseling, social justice, and advocacy competencies to clinical supervision. The primary focus is given to (a) modeling and teaching of cultural humility through interpersonal interactions in supervision, (b) application of Liberation Theory and Anti- Oppressive approaches to clinical supervision, and (c) assessment and remediation of supervisee growth opportunities.
