This webinar focuses on trauma-informed supervision through a social justice lens, an approach to supervision that begins with the personal and extends to the professional. Personal histories, identities, characteristics and psychological experiences of supervisors, as well as structural and environmental conditions of the organization, are considered in supervision. This perspective promotes the role of the supervisor as a leader in establishing a culture within their team that is responsive to and inclusive of the positionalities and unique experiences of clients and colleagues. Supervisors are encouraged to remain vigilant in their commitment to social justice by leading their teams and organizations in achieving truly inclusive diversity.

Participants will be able to:

  • Define their social work values and create a plan to promote social justice in their roles as leaders within the organization
  • Find how to improve their interactions with supervisees by identifying the positionalities and unique experiences of supervisor and supervisee
  • Critique the culture of the organization by partnering with their supervisees
    Appraise and discuss implicit bias and how it impacts the supervisory relationship and work with clients
  • Discuss with supervisees the applications of racism and inter-generational trauma-informed perspectives in supervision and practice and prepare a plan to utilize this knowledge within their practice
