CSCSW March Salon - "Developing Anti-Oppressive Intersectional Supervision/Consultation Spaces"

Presented by Dr. Tanya Greathouse, PhD, LCSW

NASWCO Chapter 0 153

We will be discussing the importance of providing supervision that is reflective of our knowledge and integration of our intersectional social location in order to promote our supervisees’ growth as multi-culturally informed clinical social workers. Multi-culturally informed clinical social work supervisors need to support and help their supervisees develop cultural acceptance and cultural adaptation as referenced in the NASW Code of Ethics. Supervision reflective of an anti-oppressive, liberatory intersectional perspective, integrates one’s cultural understanding, appreciation and humility that support multi-culturally accepting and adaptive approaches to clinical social work. This practice encourages cultural humility that promotes a curiosity of cultural patterns of behavior thus allowing the culturally adaptive supervisor to help their supervisee work across communities while embracing diverse cultural frameworks.
