Delivered by Dilek Güngör and 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.

Nafsiyat Senior Psychotherapist, Baffour Ababio, was interviewed by Channel 4 News for a piece entitled “Black men ten times more likely to develop psychotic disorders – is there enough support?” which aired on Tuesday April 3rd.
The segment was fronted by Jordan Jarrett-Bryan, who interviewed Baffour at our centre in North Islington. It was filmed by Adeyemi Michael.
“Research show that if you’re a black adult male you’re 10 times more likely to be diagnosed with a psychotic disorder. But why? And is there enough support available to those with mental health issues before they reach the point of crisis. Because too often it’s only when the breakdown happens that contact is made with any kind of services.”Lear More
