This webinar focuses on the impact of diversity on the supervisory relationship and the importance of cultural competence in clinical supervision. Speakers examine the influence that language, labeling, stereotyping, and implicit bias have on the supervisor and supervisee, as well as discuss strategies and techniques to improve cultural competencies for supervising SLPs and audiologists. The webinar reviews the literature on diversity and cultural competence in supervision; discusses biases, power imbalance, cultural humility, and self-analysis; and includes case studies and activities that provide supervisors an opportunity to consider their own cultural identity and ways in which this identity influences their supervisory alliance.
This webinar is part of the SIGnature Series, a collection of webinars developed by volunteers from ASHA’s Special Interest Groups, who share practical, evidence-based suggestions and solutions based on their in-depth knowledge, clinical experiences, and passion for their specialty areas. This webinar was developed by SIG 11: Administration and Supervision. View all the SIGnature Series courses, available through the ASHA Learning Pass subscription or for a la carte purchase.
