The focus in this exploratory study was to investigate the opinions of licensed psychologists, who were experienced in clinical supervision, to obtain a list of specific supervisor behaviors and practices considered to be most important to address diversity in clinical supervision. Forty-four licensed psychologists completed the web-based questionnaire assessing opinions regarding the most important multicultural supervisory behaviors and practices. Results of the chi-square goodness-of-fit test indicated the frequencies of ratings were not equally distributed within this sample, indicating a level of consensus among survey participants. The results showed that when addressing multicultural and diversity issues in supervision, supervisors tend to take a more passive stance, which is contrary to recommended best practices in the multicultural supervision literature. Furthermore, results showed that supervisors’ participation in continuing education regarding supervision and multicultural supervision was very limited. Implications for multicultural supervision practice and directions for future research are explored.
