Hot Topics in Training and Supervision: Addressing Race and Racism 
Although conversations about race, racism, and white privilege are encouraged across the diversity of training settings, the application of this focus is varied.  The recent political climate highlighting racist narratives and behaviors has drawn light to racism and white privilege not just in the therapy room but also in the general training environment.  This panel will focus on the ways by which supervisors and training faculty can acknowledge and address racism and white privilege in training while simultaneously promoting anti-racism as a clinical and ethical concern.

Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.  summarize the characteristics of competent supervision, inadequate supervision, and harmful supervision
2.  analyze the ethical obligations training faculty have in acknowledging and addressing racism and white privilege in training
3.  describe the challenges faculty experience while attempting to meet the ethical obligations of acknowledging and addressing racism and white privilege in training
4.  apply the various ways of which faculty challenge racism and white privilege in the training environment

Presenter:  Lauren M. Cunningham, Ph.D, HSPP
Dr. Lauren Cunningham is a counseling psychologist practicing at the Indianapolis VA Medical Center and in private practice. She specializes in primary care and health psychology for adults and older adult. Prior to working as a civilian psychologist, Dr. Cunningham served four years in the United States Air Force where she led various programs and supervised psychologists, social workers, and behavioral health technicians. Dr. Cunningham joined the Indianapolis VA Medical Center in 2019 where she currently serves on their psychology training committee providing supervision to interns in the Health Psychology track as well as training IU School of Medicine residents on health behavior factors, including depression and persistent pain. In supervision, she adopts a developmental-feminist model where she values self-reflection and
sets expectations that students and trainees examine their own biases when conceptualizing, treating, and documenting clients’ presenting concerns.

Presenter:  Gili Goldfrad, Psy.D., HSPP
Dr. Goldfrad is a clinical psychologist practicing at the Indianapolis VA Medical Center. She specializes in neuropsychological assessment of adults and older adults, who present with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral concerns. Reasons for consultation vary, but often include clarification of cognitive decline in the context of neurological conditions, chronic pain, or substance abuse. Dr. Goldfrad self-identifies as a feminist and anti-racist. In her professional life, she has facilitated unlearning racism workshops through the Association of Women in Psychology (6 events, 2014 to date) and the VAMC (10 events, 2020). Since starting at the VAMC in 2018, she has been supervising pre-doctoral practicum and internship level trainees and has been dedicated to fostering their multicultural competence. In supervision, Dr. Goldfrad sets the expectation that self-reflection is necessary, and that conscious attention will be made to how diversity factors impact both supervision and client based interpersonal dynamics. Their conceptualization of veterans and understanding of themselves as developing practitioners is done through a culturally mindful and sensitive framework. Topics often addressed in supervision include the research of normative samples, subconscious and conscious biases and their manifestations, and the impact of language (in reports and conversationally).

Presenter:  Ruth Viehoff, Psy.D., HSPP
Dr. Viehoff is a clinical psychologist practicing at the Indianapolis VA Medical Center.  Her area of expertise is primary care psychology. She works with adults and older adults, providing brief screening, brief evidence-based therapies, referral to higher level of care, and curbside consultation with other members of the primary care team. Causes for referral are diverse and are often related to management of mental or physical health conditions. Dr. Viehoff has been supervising practicum level trainees since 2019, and also serves as a member of the hospital’s Employee Threat Assessment Team. Within her work with colleagues and trainees, Dr. Viehoff draws attention to the influence of cultural factors on clinical presentation and access to care.
