'Blue remembered hills: Migration and the loss of home'
Every counsellor, psychotherapist, and psychologist will have worked with someone who has been displaced or removed from their cultural roots, or who feels excluded or marginalised from British society because of their race, skin colour, religion, culture, or language. Some, particularly refugees, may be traumatised from experiences of war, torture or displacement.
At this one-day conference we have brought together four expert speakers who will help us to address these issues. We will understand how trans-cultural therapy can work, the experience of trans-generational trauma from a Black African perspective, and a personal account of psychoanalytic work with migrants and asylum seekers. We will also hear the experience of a first-generation refugee and poet, JJ Bola, who will also read some of his poetry as part of his presentation.
