Training Academy: Identity, Intersectionality, and Reflective Practice: Deepening Self-Awareness
Identity, Intersectionality, and Reflective Practice: Deepening Self-Awareness
Designed to meet the 3-hour training in Reflective Supervision/Consultation requirement for Endorsed Reflective Supervisors when renewing their Endorsement.
As IECMH providers, we know that babies’ development occurs within relationships, culture, and community. Similarly IECMH providers recognize that high-quality IECMH services must occur within relationships, specifically reflective supervisory relationships. However, it is only recently that our field has formally committed to deeply exploring the impact of culture and context, specifically issues related to race, power, oppression, and liberation, in the families we serve, in our field, and in ourselves.
Reflective supervision is an obvious forum for intentional and critical examination of our systems as well as ourselves. When we use this space and the parallel process to recognize and address how dynamics of power, privilege and oppression are played out in the consultant-supervisor-supervisee-client-family relationship, we can work to intentionally break cycles and truly see and hold the families with whom we work.
This presentation will discuss the current efforts to expand reflective supervision to include a diversity-informed perspective. Focus will be on the primacy of self-awareness, and participants will have the opportunity to engage in reflection around their own identities and social positions and how these influence their work.
After this 3-hour presentation, participants will be able to
- Describe critical self-awareness and its connection with reflective practice.
Describe how their identities and social positions impact their values, beliefs, and perceptions and their ability to hold babies and families in mind.
Describe how the agreements of courageous conversations can be used in reflective supervision.
Describe how their intersecting identities and social location can serve as protective or vulnerability factors for secondary traumatic stress and describe the role of diversity-informed reflective supervision/practice as a protective factor.
