Ethical decision-making of supervisors of color

Dana Heller Levitt, Candice R. Crawford, Shanta Pamphile

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ethical decision-making is minimally addressed in counseling supervision literature. Supervisors or color may find challenges given the cultural context of both supervision and ethical decision-making. The authors interviewed six supervisors of color about ethical decision-making in supervision. The authors noted four themes: difficulty navigating culture in ethical decision-making, training limitations, “ethical decision-making is for White folks,” and making sense of ethical decision-making in supervision. Implications for supervisor preparation, practice, and research are discussed.
