Coaching Supervision: Transcultural Supervision - Working with Bias and Power

3 day

This course will look at:

  • the meaning of the term 'culture' in its broadest sense
  • the relationship between the personal and the social/political
  • issues of power in the therapy and supervision relationships
  • the nature of prejudice and how it can be worked within ourselves and others
  • live practice of supervision for the exploration of the issues

Course Objectives

This module aims to help the participant to:

  • Critically evaluate at least two different theoretical approaches to working psychologically across difference in culture
  • Critically evaluate at least two different models of supervision in regard to their awareness of power dynamics within the therapy/coaching relationship and in supervision
  • Critically evaluate the use of intersubjectivity theory as an underpinning for work across difference in culture
  • Appraise different approaches to working with difference, justify your own approach and be able to show how this affects work with supervisees
  • Develop a capacity to critically reflect on their own place within a diverse environment and help their supervisees to be similarly aware. This will include awareness of race, class, sexuality, gender etc
  • To analyse where diversity is a key aspect of the wider system, including in the wider organisation and society at large and develop the capacity and competence to work with it
  • Develop the capacity to analyse the effect of power differentials in the relationship with supervisees and between supervisees and their clients both as a result of the relationship between a professional and their client and as a result of culturally induced power differences and the interaction between the two
