We will be discussing the importance of providing supervision that is reflective of our knowledge and integration of our intersectional social location in order to promote our supervisees’ growth as multi-culturally informed clinical social workers. Multi-culturally informed clinical social work supervisors need to support and help their supervisees develop cultural acceptance and cultural adaptation as referenced in the NASW Code of Ethics. Supervision reflective of an anti-oppressive, liberatory intersectional perspective, integrates one’s cultural understanding, appreciation and humility that support multi-culturally accepting and adaptive approaches to clinical social work. This practice encourages cultural humility that promotes a curiosity of cultural patterns of behavior thus allowing the culturally adaptive supervisor to help their supervisee work across communities while embracing diverse cultural frameworks. 2 CEUs.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify and discuss one’s intersectional social location
2. Identify and discuss 2-3 benefits of identifying and gaining comfort in discussing one’s intersectional self with their supervisee
3. Demonstrate reflexively interrogating about one’s intersectional social location

About Dr. Greathouse
Dr. Greathouse is invested in helping individuals and organizations lean into their multiculturally accepting selves. Her work reflects her journey from Civil Rights Marchs with her father to her professional social work identity. These experiences elevated her awareness of how social inequities impact individuals’ access to education, housing, and health. This awareness led to her passion of creating environments that are reflective of anti-oppressive ideologies which support equality and liberation for underrepresented populations. Dr. G is currently, Co-owner of Diversity Compass, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion programming at Metropolitan State University of Denver Social Work Program, Adjunct Associate Professor and Co-chair for Human Behavior and Social Environment Sequence at Smith College School for Social Work.
