Clinical supervision as disciplining: the (not) good-enough student psychologist, Sipho Dlamini
Sipho Dlamini, a master’s graduate in counselling psychology who is currently a doctoral student at Unisa, spoke about his experiences in master’s psychology training at the colloquium “Who supervises and mentors black students and to what end? Advancing black-centered scholarship” on 20 March 2018. His talk reflected on issues of belonging in the discipline and racial make-up of the classes in professional training that make black students question their eligibility for being in those classes.
The colloquium “Who supervises and mentors black students and to what end? Advancing black-centered scholarship” was convened by the Transdisciplinary Psychologies Programme (TAP) of the Institute for Social Sciences at the University of South Africa (Unisa). The colloquium was a collaborative effort with the Violence, Injury and Peace Research Unit (VIPRU) of the South African Medical Research Council and University of Western Cape’s (UWC) Psychology Department, in particular Professor Rashid Ahmed.
