Supporting workers in a culturally safe way
Yamurrah offers both clinical and cultural supervision to both Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal workers. Yamurrah has experience and expertise in providing supervision particularly to those who are working with or provide a service to Aboriginal people and communities. All supervision sessions are provided by Aboriginal practitioners who are trauma-informed and hold a relevant qualification in either Social Work or Psychology.
All Supervision sessions are guided by Yamurrah’s ethics and values, which include confidentiality, quality, cultural safety, professionalism and social justice. These values are also consistent with the Australian Social Work Association values and ethics code.
Supervision is a collaborative and professional relationship
Supervision is a collaborative and professional relationship that is developed with trust and cultural safety. One of the central purposes of supervision is to support the supervisee to explore issues that may impact on them in their work. It is a safe place to talk and explore innovative ways of addressing complex matters. Through supporting the supervisee, supervision provided by Yamurrah may indirectly support clients that the supervisee provides a service to as well. Supervision, as well as being an important element in professional development, has also been found to encourage self-care, especially when working in complex issues.
