Multicultural Supervision:  The Joy of Embracing Each Other's Worldviews 

Juliet Velarde Betita, MFT, and Heidi A. Zetzer, Ph.D 


Supervision is a unique and essential part of clinical training.  It is "an intervention provided by a more senior member of the profession to more junior members of the profession" (Bernard & Goodyear, 2004, p.8) that is both supportive and evaluative.  The aim is to foster the development of effective practitioners while assuring the quality of services provided to the clients.  Supervision is inherently relational and involves multicultural interactions that are delightfully rich and complex.  The goal of multicultural supervision is to increase supervisees' abilities to "function effectively in a pluralistic democratic society and on an organizational/societal level, advocating effectively to develop new theories, practice, policies and organizational structures that are more responsive to all groups" (Sue 2001, p.802).


At the conclusion of the talk, participants will be able to:

  • Define multicultural supervision.
  • Describe what is meant by cultural humility.
  • Describe the impact of social group membership on clients, trainees, and supervisors.


Juliet Velarde Betita, MFT, Private Practitioner & Diversity Facilitator, is a teacher, trainer and therapist.  As a Filipina, female, elder, daughter of immigrants, first born in the USA, her identity is an ever shifting adjustment to these cultural identities as she moves in the world.


Dr. Heidi A. Zetzer, Ph.D., Director Hosford Counseling & Psychological Services Clinic, UCSB, is a Lecturer with Security of Employement in the Department of Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology at UCSB.  Dr. Zetzer is currently the Santa Barbara County Chapter Representative to the California Psychological Association.
