Clinical Supervision Skills Demonstration Videos and Incorporating Cultural Material into the Professional Development Process (webinar)

Presenters: Paul Hunziker, MA and Lynsey Parrish-Dearth (Northern Cheyenne, Crow, Turtle Mountain Chippewa), MSW, LICSW

Culture is a part of every interaction a clinical supervisor has with their supervisees, clients and other staff at their agencies. The leadership role that a clinical supervisor plays demands that they feel confident in their skills navigating cultural discussions. This includes working with staff to develop their skills in cultural humility and awareness. Clinical supervisors in training regularly report that having more representative video examples of supervisor skills would be useful. In response to this feedback the Northwest ATTC has created a video series which demonstrates examples of a supervisor working with a supervisee on culturally related issues in their professional development. For this webinar two of the creators of these video demonstrations, Paul Hunziker and Lynsey Parrish-Dearth, will discuss how they incorporated cultural skills-building into the demonstration. Paul and Lynsey also co-teach a tribe focused clinical supervision skills training. During the webinar they will also discuss implications for training supervisors working in tribe-based settings.
