A Critical Postcolonial and Resilience-Based Framework of Supervision in Action
In this paper, we describe two critical events in clinical supervision between two counseling psychology trainees of color and a White supervisor that demonstrate the need and effectiveness of a supervisory approach that challenges the psychotherapeutic status quo, particularly within the context of our current sociopolitical climate. Using case materials and our reflections, we highlight the significant contributions of relational safety as espoused by a critical postcolonial supervision framework (Hernández & McDowell, 2010) in cultivating trainees’ development as culturally congruent practitioners. This approach confronts hegemonic values of psychotherapy and integrates the cultural worlds of clients, clinicians, and supervisors. We conclude with practical suggestions for building relational safety within the supervisory relationship and future research avenues. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
