This workshop will address how intersectional social identities, power, and privilege can be effectively integrated into supervision. This workshop reviews how trauma-informed practices and strengths-based perspective are fundamental to anti-oppressive practice. Though many groups and settings understand the importance of utilizing a trauma-informed approach in their interactions with one another and their offerings to others, this workshop offers additional frameworks by contextualizing trauma and violence within a broader context of oppression and power.


This workshop will assist participants with understanding the interconnections between anti- oppressive strategies, social identities of clients and staff, and trauma, and increase skills at effectively integrating anti-oppressive, trauma informed approaches with staff they supervise. This is an interactive workshop which utilizes experiential activities, group discussion, reflection, and lecture.
