    Cases in Multicultural Clinical Supervision: Models, Lenses, and Applications is an application-focused guide for mental health providers delivering clinical supervision to diverse populations in a variety of contexts and settings. The casebook emphasizes the need to not only provide competency-based supervision, but also for supervising clinicians to understand and practice cultural competency within their work. Viewing diversity through a wide lens, the text calls to attention myriad cultural dynamics that impact the process of mental health supervision, both between supervisors and trainees, and trainees and their clients.

    The casebook is divided into seven distinct sections: Supervision Competence; Diversity; Supervisory Relationship; Professionalism; Assessment, Evaluation, and Feedback; Problems in Professional Competence; and Ethical, Legal, and Regulatory Considerations. These sections progress from foundations of clinical supervision in mental health contexts to increasingly detailed and complex clinical examples, all within a multicultural framework. Throughout, the casebook presents a variety of interventions used in actual training settings, and includes the perspectives of field supervisors and clinicians-in-training.

    Full of clinical examples and opportunities for practical application, Cases in Multicultural Clinical Supervision is well suited for mental health supervisors-in-training or practicing mental health professionals delivering clinical supervision.

    “Burnes and Manese’s edited volume represents a giant leap towards ensuring that social justice, multiculturalism, and culture frame supervision. Case-driven, this book offers a focus on the how-to of multiculturalism and multicultural supervision and promises to be a mainstay of mental health training. The focus on the intersection of competencies and multiculturalism is central and provides a strong foundation. The editors and individual chapter contributors are among the leaders and rising stars in the field and each provides a unique perspective on diversity and the multiple competencies and practices entailed in clinical supervision. This casebook provides a much-needed and substantial contribution to mental health supervision training and practice.”
    Carol Falender, Ph.D. Co-author of Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach and co-editor of Multicultural and Diversity in Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach

    “This edited collection of diverse voices, from some of our best and new leaders in the field of multicultural supervision, is a treasure trove of practical wisdom. It weaves together key scholarly research with sensitive, clinical conceptualization across an array of fascinating case studies. It is more than a textbook; it serves as a self-guided tutorial in how to provide state-of-the-art, competent, ethical, and professional multicultural supervision. The authors tackle an array of multicultural challenges that confront all supervisors, whatever their setting, and offer astute guidance for developing and maintaining strong and effective supervisory alliances. Providing quality multicultural supervision is not simple. Most supervisors have limited, if any training in managing the conflicts, negotiating the boundaries and handling the complex power dynamics that such work entails. This book provides essential, hands-on examples of how to incorporate best practices to address these challenges. This resource is seriously needed, and long overdue.”
    Jeffrey P. Prince, Ph.D., Executive Director, Counseling and Psychological Services University of California, Berkeley Director, International Institute for Student Counseling and Mental Health-University of California, Berkeley

    “Navigating the landscape of culturally competent clinical/counseling practice can be especially challenging when client demographics and cultural differences color the therapeutic interactions clinicians have with their clients. Situations are even more complex when the element of supervision is added to the mix. Supervision requires keen insights; it requires a listening ear that is in tune with both client and clinician voices. It requires a mastery of the culturally diverse content domains and process dynamics of therapy that are all a part of the complex interplay of intellectual, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual elements that give voice to both situational circumstances that must be managed amid the ambiance of sometimes unresolved developmental issues that are the essence of the residual baggage we all carry. This confluence of factors combine to create situations and circumstances that must be managed with care, competence, and confidence. Also needed are tools and resources, the conceptual templates that provide a comprehensive framework for understanding the issues involved, while helping to chart a course of intervention strategies that clinician and supervisor alike can consider when deciding on what specific intervention to employ. This book is exactly what the professions of psychology and counseling have been needing. The text is a comprehensive blend of the theoretical and applied, even as it provides a level of conceptual depth that is uncommon for texts of this nature. An added bonus is not just the topics discussed but the professionals discussing them, and the authors have assembled an impressive list of established and celebrated veterans, and rising stars in the field, whose insights will prove to be as interesting as they are compelling. The book fills a void in the practice of supervision, and its models, methods, and case studies provide the reader with all of the tools one requires to engage supervisory tasks with confident reassurance.”
