Although much has been written to help counselors understand the potential impact of their own biases toward clients from traditionally marginalized groups, much less attention has been given to assist counselors working with clients who express discriminatory views that counselors may find offensive. In this article, the authors briefly outline how constructive clinical supervision can be integrated with aspects of relational–cultural theory and moral foundations theory to help counselors work with clients who espouse discriminatory views.
Review how clinical supervisors can utilize the Constructive Clinical Supervision model to assist counselors working with clients who espouse discriminatory views.
Understand how to integrate aspects of Relational-Cultural Theory and Moral Foundations Theory into the Constructive Clinical Supervision model.

Even though I'm not a supervisor, I was able to see myself in this article. I often encounter clients who hold belief systems that differ radically from mine, but I take into consideration the cultural differences between level of education and difference between living in an urban setting in a comfortable community (me) and my clients who in a very poor rural setting. Most of them were blue collar workers and are unemployed due to being injured on the job (workers compensation clients). I recently had a discussion with a client whose views are opposite of mine, and we discussed how our differences affect our professional relationship. While talking, I uncovered several things about her past that I did not know about her. It's clearer to me why she holds the views she does and gives me fodder for working with her on her anger problems related to her past.
Thanks for the article.

The typo of “emphatic” instead of “empathic” cause me to change my answer incorrectly—I assumed it was a test of how closely I was paying attention, but instead it showed how little the person preparing the test was paying attention!
