Incorporating the Ally Model of Social Justice to the Supervision Process
8:45 am–12:00 pm EDT
The ally model of social justice calls for those with privilege to act on behalf of those without privilege who belong to a different social group. Built on the concepts of multi-identities, social justice, self-awareness and professional values, this approach contains over 30 ally characteristics that can be incorporated into supervision. It is developmental in nature and contains and extensive list of specific ally characteristics that can inform the supervisory process at the intrapersonal, interpersonal. and systems levels. This workshop presents content, interactive discussions and case application with the ally model focused on supervision. It will also include the critiques of the model as it relates to supervision.
