DoD: Cultural Intersubjectivity in Supervision

Friday, September 15, 2017

Topic: Cultural Intersubjectivity in Supervision

Location: TPI, 2232 Carleton St., Berkeley, CA 94704

Date: Friday, September 15th, 4-6pm

Facilitator: Beverly Burch, Phd, LCSW & Alexandra Jamali, LCSW

This Dialogue on Difference focuses on the ways that race, culture and generational differences came up in a three year supervision. Navigating these differences and dealing with several micro aggressions led to a deepening of the supervisory relationship and the clinical work.

Beverly Burch, PhD, LCSW, supervises and teaches at TPI as well as serving as Vice President. A Clinical Consulting Faculty member of the Sanville Institute, she is also the author of On Intimate Terms and Other Women, books which reconsider psychoanalytic thinking on women, gender and sexuality. She has a private practice in Berkeley.

Alexandra P. Jamali, LCSW, is a graduate of the post-graduate training program at TPI. A clinical focus of hers is working with mixed-race individuals and culturally mixed couples. She is co-chair of the Diversity Committee and co-created the pilot Staff Therapist of Color Mentorship Program. Most recently, she is the recipient for the 2017 APA Division 39 Early Career Professional Paper Award for her paper titled, "Racially Queer: Mixed-Race experience in Psychoanalytic Theory, Thought and Literature." She is in private practice in Oakland.

Dialogues on Difference are a free benefit to all TPI members.
