Description

Supervision most often involves a relationship in which a junior member of the profession seeks guidance from a more senior member in the profession. Counseling supervision is unique because supervisors are attentive to supervisees’ personal and professional development and are attuned to parallel processes that often occur. Furthermore, counseling supervision often involves techniques that allow supervisees to practice their skills and receive feedback. Although power dynamics are always present within supervisory relationships, they are often overlooked and unaddressed. Furthermore, in cross-cultural supervision, power differentials are more glaring and can greatly impact the relationship, including outcomes. Finally, the profession is seeped in white supremacist practice, which shapes how supervisors and supervisees engage. This presentation highlights power dynamics in supervision and offers strategies to address them. Using the concepts of authenticity and accountability, steps of the supervision process are explored.
