The Nafsiyat research team, led by a medical anthropologist currently completing her PhD research at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Natassia Brenman, have finished working on a project conducting research into the therapy work that Nafsiyat does.
The project aimed to capture narratives about the processes involved with accessing the service and progressing through therapy as well as collecting rich, qualitative feedback from clients about their experiences at different stages of their journey.
The resultant narrative research report is now published here, with an introduction from Senior Psychotherapist, Baffour Ababio.

The workshop will draw on clinical examples and work as well as the intercultural experience to put forward the processes involved in working at the juncture of the client’s inner and outer experiences. The evocation of shame and avoidance in the dyadic or group encounter of intersecting differences and sameness will also be explored. “Any clinical encounter that does not take into account the client’s whole life experience and does not consider their race, culture, gender or social values, can only fragment that person.” (Jafar Kareem, co-founder of Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre). In the workshop Jafar’s quote will be applied to societal/individual assumptions with regards to racism and sexism. There will be an opportunity for participants to work on some of their own material from their practice.
