Participants sought: Study on diversity issues in supervision in clinical psychology

The following is a paid advertisement. The Manitoba Psychological Society does not necessarily endorse any service or educational opportunity advertised.

Are you a clinical psychology supervisor?

You are invited to participate in a research project on diversity issues in clinical supervision. 

The objective of this study is to give us a better understanding of the experience of clinical psychologists who supervise students or colleagues who are dealing with issues related to diversity. The differences underlying these issues may be related to various dimensions, including ethnicity/racialized group membership, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, physical or intellectual disability. We are looking for psychologists with different levels of experience; advanced expertise in diversity intervention or supervision is not a prerequisite for participation. Our ultimate goal is to propose solutions for the challenges faced by supervisors.

The inclusion criteria for participation are 1) to be a member of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec or an equivalent regulatory body in another Canadian province, 2) to have worked as a clinical psychology supervisor for at least six months over the past two years, at the rate of at least one hour per month, and 3) to have sufficient knowledge of English or French to complete the questionnaire.

Your participation will consist in completing an online questionnaire (which should take you about 30 minutes) on your training, characteristics and experience as a psychologist and supervisor. At the end of the questionnaire, you will be asked to provide your contact information for a 60-minutes interview to explore these experiences in greater depth if you wish.

Here is the link to the questionnaire:

After completing the online questionnaire, you will be entered into a draw to win one of 15 prepaid Visa/Mastercard cards worth $100. If you choose to take part in the semi-structured interview, you will receive $50 in compensation.
