This workshop presents best practices and evidence support for multicultural clinical supervision in the frame of cultural humility. Through experiential exercises, participants will learn the complexity of the multiple components of supervisor competence and worldviews in clinical supervision. Review of regulations for clinical supervision will be provided. Emphasis is on strategies to enhance supervision, including multicultural identities and worldviews, establishing the supervisory relationship, identifying and addressing strains, prevention of inappropriate and inadequate supervision, which research has identified is occurring at high rates, the supervision contract,  goal and task setting, ongoing anchored feedback, trauma and trauma-informed supervision, and the management of countertransference and emotional reactivity, and ethical issues.
