The “Let’s Get Comfortable Working with Uncomfortable Conversations: Addressing Diversity, Challenging Bias, and Thinking Critically in Clinical Supervision” webinar helped attendees identify the intersectionality of diversity elements and how they can sustain or even amplify implicit bias as well as specific strategies to identify implicit bias in a supervisor’s own work, and to foster a supervisee’s ability to both self-identify and to receive and provide feedback related to implicit bias. The course also discussed techniques to be used in supervision that deliberately increase both parties’ ability to engage in crucial conversations that combat the impact of privilege and bias in behavioral health care. Helpful tools and resources from the presentation are provided below:
