Working relationally with diversity
Working relationally with diversity: deepening our therapeutic bonds
Myself, Dr Amelia Rana, along with co-facilitator Dr Carole Francis-Smith, will be running the well-received workshop on working relationally with diversity on Sunday the 27th November at The Penny Brohn Centre, Ham Green, Bristol.
We are all a product of our cultural contexts and diversity is a necessary aspect of all of our relationships. This workshop facilitates the deepening of therapeutic bonds by helping us to recognise and understand the complex issues of working transculturally. We will look at the concepts of ‘race’ and ethnicity and the experiences and effects of racism that affect our diverse communities. The workshop includes opportunities to increase self-awareness about the often unconscious process of racialisation and ways in which we can address issues of racism and power differentials.
This workshop costs £65 if booked before the 21st October 2016 and £75 after. This includes refreshments as well as Penny Brohn's famous healthy and delicious lunch. The workshop will include pictures, videos, reading material, experiential exercises and of course a lot of discussion and exploration, including aspects of the doctoral research into British women’s experiences of racist hate crime I undertook. This is a very challenging but rewarding area and I am really looking forward to running the workshop again, and at such a beautiful location! There is plenty of free parking at Penny Brohn.
If you would like to book a place please contact me on my mobile 07966195388 and I will send you a booking form.
The programme and joining instructions will be sent to you beforehand. CPD certificates will be given out on the 27/11/16. No refunds available after 31/10/16.
