Culturally sensitive and responsive supervision practices are not solely aimed at teaching knowledge or skills. By providing supervisees and supervisors with opportunities to reflect on one’s own cultural identity, attitudes, and experiences in the context of clinical supervision, understanding, sensitivity and awareness will be deepened. This training focuses on assisting clinical supervisors to be more culturally sensitive, responsive, and self-aware through experiential activities, active discussion, and participation.
