Anti-Racist and Multicultural Practices in Clinical Supervision
Two- Part Live Online CE Event
Friday, June 5, 2020 | 3:00–5:45pm
Monday, June 8, 2020 | 10:00am–3:15pm
NYSED and ASWB approved for 6 CE contact hours
Clinical supervision is an integral foundation for sound clinical practice. Supervision not only monitors the quality of professional services and encourages professional development of the individual, it advances the disciplines of social work and mental health counseling practice. As our grasp of cultural humility and the value of anti-oppressive work has expanded, supervision has grown to incorporate these factors while becoming increasingly sensitive to social and cross-cultural barriers in our effective supervisory practice. This conference considers how power dynamics and identity can influence individual and programmatic work through an anti-oppressive framework while also examining how cross-cultural supervision can lead to a productive and positive working alliance.
Participants will be able to:
- Gain an understanding of multiculturalism and anti-oppressive practice and its impact on the supervisory relationship
- Identify the barriers and challenges of cross-cultural supervision in an agency environment
- Provide practical knowledge on implementing a multicultural lens
- Consider how identity and belief systems impact the supervisory relationship
- Navigate supervisory relationships when working with a supervisor or population of different social identities

He completed his doctorate from the School of Social Policy and Practice at The University of Pennsylvania in May 2013. His dissertation, “The Invisible Epidemic in Social Work Academia,” examined the complex phenomena of mass incarceration through a historical and contemporary lens. He concluded by developing curricula for Master level students to increase awareness, activism and holistic practice in the milieu. Courses developed from his dissertation have been implemented at Columbia University, Temple University, City College, and the University of Pennsylvania amongst others.

In addition, he works collaboratively with the Center For Justice at Columbia University on its annual “Beyond The Bars” conference –– which brings impacted people together with academics, activists, policy makers, and practitioners from across the country to create a more informed understanding, and subsequent response to mass incarceration.facilitate various dialogue(s) towards the emancipatory exploration of justice in theory and action.
