Event description
This training will provide a safe learning space to engage in deep exploration and self-examination of your own supervision practice biases.

About this event

Biases can be prejudices, preconceptions, foregone conclusions, predispositions, preconceived notions that we have of other people that we are unaware of and are automatic. Unconscious biases are our unintentional people-preferences, formed by our socialisation and experience, including exposure to the media. We unconsciously assign positive and negative value to the categories we use and relate to these accordingly. Such biases can influence in an unfair and discriminatory way how supervisors supervise counsellors who work with clients who are culturally and racially different.

This training will provide a safe learning space for you to engage in deep exploration, self-examination, and constructive self-critiquing of your own supervision practice biases. It will facilitate challenge of personal outmoded scripts and biased Eurocentric training approaches, with the aim of reframing thinking and practice for a more inclusive way of working with counsellors who meet race and cultural diversity in their practice.

Learning Outcomes

a) The training will enable supervisors to identify, understand and challenge forms of Unconscious Bias as they operate in society and in the 3 main foci of supervision practice: Supportive, Managerial, Educative/Tutorial.

b) You will be able to increase your awareness of personal, cultural and transgenerational scripts that influence and shape your world views and relatedness to race and culture.

c) The focus on race and cultural diversity in supervision will help supervisors become more aware of what is excluded from their supervision support and how to help supervisees in their challenges in becoming more culturally competent.

d) The training will provide some relevant concepts and theoretical handles for understanding intercultural themes such as, micro-aggressions/microinequities, identity shame, internalised oppression, white fragility.

About the Trainer

Dr Aileen Alleyne is a UKCP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and organisational consultant. In addition to running her private practice in East Sussex and South East London, she is a visiting lecturer at several training institutions and an organisational consultant on issues of race and cultural diversity within various workplace settings, such as the NHS, Social Services, Education and the Police Services. Her clinical research, examining black workers’ experiences in three institutional settings, makes a significant contribution to the discourse on race. Highlighting the concept of ‘the internal oppressor’, it offers ways of deepening understanding of black psychological reactions to the negative impact of racism.

Aileen is the author of several book chapters and journal papers exploring themes on black/white dynamics, shame, and identity wounding, and working with issues of Difference and Diversity in workplace settings. She is currently writing her first book on Trans/Intergenerational Trauma to be published next year by Karnac.
