Culturally and Linguistically sensitive supervision

Go Back


This workshop aims to improve your confidence to support your supervisees working therapeutically with culture, race and language. The session will be highly experiential and will use a variety of methods, for example: discussion, role play, action methods, sculpting and hot seating.

Case studies, based on real (anonymised) scenarios brought by supervisees to supervision, will provide the main focus for the session. These case studies address issues such as: therapist white privilege and class privilege, power dynamics and associated guilt, dealing with racist comments, supporting supervisees who are similar and different to you, working with multilingual clients with and without an interpreter, safeguarding issues across cultures.

By the end of the session it is hoped that participants will feel more confident to work across cultures and languages, allowing themselves and their supervisees to accept that cultural mistakes may be made but that they are also able to repair these ruptures to the therapeutic and supervisory relationship.
