Abstract

The article offers an overview or meta-perspective on the parallels and kinship between cultural supervision and clinical supervision and between cultural supervision and cultural competence. It discusses some cultural competencies specific to working with indigenous Māori, competencies which may also establish principles of cultural competency for working safely and effectively amongst multiple lived realities within multicultural societies. It compares and contrasts aspirational and regulatory approaches to cultural competence and suggests some ways in which cultural competencies might be measureable and measured. Finally, it links the practice of cultural supervision to the development and maintenance of cultural competence.
