Supervising Diversity Challenges Experienced by Remote Practicing Clinicians

Psychologists encounter various challenges while providing supervision to remote practicing clinicians.  In light of both COVID-19 and the growing popularity of companies offering teletherapy services, the need to ensure awareness of evidenced-based supervision in a remote environment is essential. With that being said, ongoing racist narratives and behaviors continue to draw light to the need for supervisors to assist clinicians who encounter racism, white privilege, and microaggressions in the therapy digital room.  This presentation will focus on the ways by which supervisors can acknowledge, address, and support clinicians who encounter diversity challenges while providing teletherapy.

Learning Objectives: 
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.  describe the challenges facing supervisors providing telesupervision.
2.  summarize components of effective supervision related to diversity factors.
3.  apply various supervision models to explore diversity challenges experienced by remote practicing clinicians.

Presenter:  Lauren M. Cunningham, PhD, HSPP, Clinical Quality Supervisor, Lyra Health & Co-owner and Psychologist, Blackbird Psychological Services, LLC
Dr. Lauren Cunningham serves as a Clinical Quality Supervisor at Lyra Health where she supervises master’s level clinicians providing tele psychology services. Prior to working as a civilian psychologist, Dr. Cunningham served in the United States Air Force where she led various programs and supervised psychologists, social workers, and behavioral health technicians. Dr. Cunningham joined Lyra Health in January 2021 where she additionally supports several diversity initiatives and projects enhancing hiring practices for both clinical and operational employees. In supervision, she adopts a developmental-feminist model that values self-reflection and sets expectations that clinicians examine their own biases when conceptualizing, treating, and documenting clients’ presenting concerns.
