Multicultural Supervision: Framework, Techniques, and Challenges

Attention is then paid to multicultural supervision competencies such as creating a multiculturally informed supervisory environment, offering multicultural education, applying the ADDRESSING+ framework, incorporating cultural formulations, and attending to the self of the supervisor and the supervisee. The focus then shifts to supervisory techniques aligned with effective multicultural supervision including forging a strong supervisory relationship, focusing on the triadic relationship, enhancing multicultural awareness, and addressing power dynamics. This is followed by a discussion of the challenges to implementing multiculturally competent supervision. The pertinent research is reviewed. Throughout the workshop, vignettes are used to highlight the points. The audience is engaged in self-reflective activities related to their competence the conduct of supervision that is multiculturally competent, culturally humble, and attuned to and inclusive of diversity.
