Conceptualizing Supervision from a Multicultural Developmental Supervisory Model: Latinas Supervising Latinas 

The presenters developed the Multicultural Developmental Supervisory Model (MDSM) that integrates multicultural counseling competencies, gender identity theory, and ethnic identity development theory with developmental theories of supervision.  The MDSM is designed to identify the complex processes that influence the supervision dyad in an effort to provide guidance and support to the supervisor and the supervisee as well as the institutions in which supervision takes place.  The purpose of this presentation is to provide detailed information about the dynamics of clinical supervisory relationships, specifically in regards to gender, ethnic and other cultural differences, and to introduce the Multicultural Developmental Supervisory Model (MDSM). The presenters will use case examples to demonstrate how to apply the MDSM in supervision. Lunch is included.
