"Diversity Awareness: Effective Practice and Supervision", presented by Anna Sihon, LCSW

With our communities becoming more diverse, and many persons holding more than one identity recognized as oppressed or underserved, it is important that Clinical Social Work Supervisors are able to utilize effective allyship to improve diversity within our profession.  Being able to create the learning environment to delve into supervisees’ personal experiences with diversity and creating practical application of concepts learned in their MSW programs will better serve the communities in which we practice.  Knowing how to actively seek, support, and sponsor persons of oppressed and underserved identities will improve graduation rates and retention rates of these persons in the social work profession.

  1. Learn how to tie Power, Privilege, and Oppression theories into practice for supervisees
  2. Be able to effectively notice when students are experiencing impact of their own diversities and have conversations that create a supportive learning environment
  3. Be able to assist supervisees in identifying self-care and support options to adequately address stressors related to their own diversities
  4. Learn how to sponsor and create opportunities to improve representation of diversities in social work positions.
Salon attendees receive 1.5 CEUs.
