Introduction to Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy
Access to training on racial-cultural diversity. The Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy™ approach is an integration of African-centred therapy and Intercultural psychotherapy. This eclectic approach addresses culture, ethnicity, race and spirituality in addition to psychological pathology. These elements are integral to working with ethnic minorities.
The approach was developed to address the lack of training on racial-cultural diversity and the impact of institutional racism and intersectionality, which can contribute towards psychological practitioners and mental health workers lacking essential cultural competencies.
These underdeveloped essential competencies can contribute towards the experience of secondary trauma in the practitioner when attempting to work through the complexities of racial trauma with clients.
Aims and objectives
- Provide practitioners with a therapeutic understanding and approach that contributes to making psychological therapies more accessible to African, Asian, Caribbean, people of colour and ethnic minorities.
- Enable participants to recognise the value in being able to work with difference and diversity in relation to culture, ethnicity, race and spirituality.
- Support participants to develop more confidence in working holistically within an intercultural framework.
- Develop participants' knowledge and wisdom of concepts that will enhance African-centred intercultural practice.
Dates: 5th, 6th, 19th, 20th February 2022.
