May 6, 2018 @ 8:45 am - 11:00 am

Supervision and Social Class: Effects on Professional Identity Development
by Ricki Boden, LCSW, LMFT

Educational Goals:  This workshop focuses on supervisees’ professional identity development through the lens of social class (socioeconomic status). We will identify both strengths and obstacles different class backgrounds present for trainees and associates, with full realization that class cannot be truly separated from other social identities. I will share material gathered from 30 plus years of providing trainings on the impact of social class on both students, therapists and supervisors. In the second part of the presentation you will be encouraged to discuss your experience with this topic and raise any questions of interest. For example, how does similarity or difference in class background affect the supervisory exchange?

Learning objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify social class as a factor affecting professional development
  2. Participants will be able to name 3 class based strengths that support professional development
  1. Participants will be able to name 3 class based obstacles that hinder professional development
  1. Participants will be able to develop 2 new supervision skills that are attuned to social class variables
