Multicultural Supervision

3.0 Supervision

Click here for registration

This class is for LISWs who have had the initial 6.0 clinical supervision class and are supervising LMSWs working towards their clinical license.

In 2021 the NASW Code of Ethics standard 1.05(c) reads “Social workers should demonstrate awareness and cultural humility by engaging in critical self-reflection (understanding their own bias and engaging in self-correction); recognizing clients as experts of their own culture; committing to life-long learning; and holding institutions accountable for advancing cultural humility.” Embedding this same standard into clinical supervision is essential in multicultural supervision.

This workshop will give supervisors tools and techniques to engage with supervisees who may bring different cultural values/world views. Participants will understand the benefits of practicing ongoing self-reflection. Strategies to increase organizational cultural humility will be discussed. 

Key concepts that will be discussed during this training include:

  • Implicit bias
  • Multicultural engagement
  • Value assessment
  • Cultural humility
  • Cross-cultural communication

Presenter: Myke Selha, LISW, MSW is an assistant professor and the field education director for the Grand View University BSW program. Prior to academia, Myke has worked in private practice, rural community mental health centers as both a clinical social worker and as an Executive Director, and in non-profit management. Mr. Selha is a former Iowa-NASW Chapter President. He was also a member of the Standards Setting Task Force for the ASWB Clinical Licensure Exam. He is a frequent presenter for workshops on ethics, clinical supervision, and LGBTQ cultural competence.
