Anti-Racism, Anti-Oppression and Cultural Competency Training

KW Counselling Services is committed to creating a community where all aspects of being human are celebrated and supported. We aim to enrich our community and profession by examining structures at a systems-level, as well as what we can do as individuals, and by providing training including how to support all people – of all ethnicities, genders, sexual/gender identities, relationship styles, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, abilities, and beliefs.

Our anti-racism, anti-oppression and cultural competency training seeks to provide clinicians with an insight into how people and cultures differ, how our social locations impact our experience in this world, and how we deliver our services. We explore complex concepts of cross-cultural communication and relationship development in an environment of empathy and unity.

Clinical Supervision Training

KW Counselling Services offers training to clinical supervisors. The College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO) has clearly outlined the requirements for being a clinical supervisor in Ontario. Clinical supervisors are now required to have 30 hours of directed learning in supervision.

From the CRPO website: “As of, April 1, 2018. “The Registration Committee has approved the following criteria for demonstrating competence in providing clinical supervision: The supervisor must be a member in good standing of a regulatory college whose members may practise psychotherapy. The supervisor must have five years’ extensive clinical experience. The supervisor must meet CRPO’s “independent practice” requirement (completion of 1000 direct client contact hours and 150 hours of clinical supervision). The supervisor must have completed 30 hours of directed learning in providing clinical supervision. Directed learning can include course work, supervised practice as a clinical supervisor, individual/peer/group learning, and independent study that includes structured readings. The supervisor must provide a signed declaration that they understand CRPO’s definitions of clinical supervision, clinical supervisor, and the scope of practice of psychotherapy.”
KW Counselling Services can provide training in all four areas required by CRPO:

  • Course work
  • Supervised practice as a clinical supervisor
  • Individual/peer/group learning
  • Independent study that includes structured readings
