Abstract (summary)

The current study investigated the effects of supervisee race and the match between supervisors’ and supervisees’ colorblind racial attitudes on supervisees’ perceptions of the supervisory bond and overall alliance early in supervision and over two months. Self-report measures of racial attitudes were administered to 50 supervisory dyads composed of all White supervisors, 33 White supervisees, and 17 Supervisees of Color. Discrepancy and average racial attitudes scores for each supervisory dyad were created using HLM software which allowed researchers to account for the shared variance in supervisors’ and supervisees’ colorblind racial attitudes scores. The most noteworthy findings revealed that supervisee race did not influence the supervisory alliance and bond over time. Furthermore, supervisees’ perceived decreases in the supervisory bond over time when supervisors possessed significantly more advanced racial attitudes than supervisees and the dyad had an overall low average of racial attitudes. Findings point to importance of infusing multicultural training of future
