Systemic Supervision CPD Workshop: Supervision, Power, and Institutional Racism, with Karen Carberry

A CEDAR seminar
Date21 June 2022
PlaceWashington Singer

This event will be face to face at Washington Singer, University of Exeter, but will be moved online if circumstances require this.

What happens when the implicative forces surrounding the supervisee/supervisor relationship and clinical practice slip through the permeable lens of institutional racism, and power, within the individual, group, and peer supervisory sphere? This CPD training will explore the life cycle of supervision in relation to its privileging academic contexts of every-day racism (Carberry & Brooks-Gordon, 2020; Essed & Carberry, 2020; Banks, 2020; McKenzie-Mavinga, 2016). We will journey together experientially whilst engaging towards the sustainability of dignity within the sacred supervisory space.
