Racism in Supervision: The Perspective of a Supervisee.
Gragg, Krista M.
This paper provides a personal account of the difficulties a supervisee, counseling a male Asian immigrant, encountered with a supervisor. The account helps to address what graduate students should do if they experience racism. It also delves into the deeper issue of whether the influence of supervisors' cultural backgrounds determines how they respond to supervisees and if it limits the types of advice they offer. The paper then discusses the dilemma graduate students face when they must decide between following the rules of their supervisor and thinking more critically about alternative solutions to cultural issues with clients. It offers suggestions on what would be helpful attitudes for supervisors in these situations and what students can do to counter the racist attitudes with what they know to be right. (JDM)
