A celebration of black therapists in the UK, past and present
About this live online CPD
As it is Black History month, Eugene Ellis will be exploring the histories and contributions of important black therapists and psychologists who have practised in the UK through the years.
The live online event will be both a celebration of black therapists and an opportunity to learn about some of the important concepts that specifically support black mental health. There will be opportunities to ask questions, make contributions and give reflections.
The term ‘Black’ is a political and sociological term, identifying people who have been most vulnerable to the oppression of White racism owing to differences in skin colour.
