This course is designed to help practitioners understand the cultural and power dynamics inherent to the supervisory relationship. We will explore research that illuminates the need to better understand the potential challenges and opportunities resulting from cross-cultural supervisory practice.
Learning objectives for this course include:
- Learn about and from other participants in terms of identity development and how this informs their work
- Receive theoretical information about interculturalism and power and its correlation to practice
- Experience models of practice and personal narrative that serve as tools for engaging difference
Please note: Each class will be held via Zoom. Participant numbers will be capped to ensure a personalized learning experience and there will be numerous opportunities for engagement (e.g. small group discussions, role plays, case studies). As such, learners should prepare for active participation. We ask that students keep their cameras on as much as they are able, while understanding that it may not be possible to keep cameras on throughout the entire class. Rest assured that we will take many breaks throughout each class to help assuage Zoom fatigue.
