Presented by Dr. Dan Li
This webinar centers on the supervision of Asian international counseling students. The presenter will first introduce the central values and principles that are salient in Asian international counseling students from Confucianism-influenced cultures. Next, the presenter will contextualize the supervision needs of Asian international counseling students at the intersectionality of culture, language, race/ethnicity, and age. Finally, the presenter will demonstrate the application of one of the supervision models—the integrative developmental model (IDM)—to supervising Asian international counseling students.
