About the Video:
In Feminist Therapy Supervision, guest expert supervisor Dr. Laura S. Brown demonstrates and discusses this approach to supervision. The goal of feminist supervision is to empower the supervisee by using analysis of gender and analysis of power to achieve the goal of an egalitarian supervisory relationship, while simultaneously acknowledging and embracing feminist political analysis and scholarship on the psychology of women and gender.
The feminist supervisor integrates a multiculturally informed approach to understanding the client's distress as well as the supervisee's challenges and capacities.
In this DVD, Dr. Brown and her supervisee engage in a supervisory session that shows how the identities for all parties in the supervision triad — client, supervisor, and supervisee — inform what occurs in both the supervision and the psychotherapy. Host Dr. Arpana G. Inman interviews Brown and her supervisee about their work together, exploring the constructs of this model as they examine the session in detail.
