Lost in translation: An exploration of transcultural relationships within therapy
This workshop explores the complexities and challenges of working with race, culture, and ethnicity in the therapeutic setting.

By the end of the workshop, participants will:
- Have a greater awareness of their own culture, assumptions, prejudices, and stereotypes.
- Have explored the historical implications of race and racism in counselling and psychotherapy.
- Have explored and discussed aspects of transcultural counselling theory.
- Reviewed their own practice in light of what is multi-culturally therapeutic.
