Black Identities + White Therapies - Working with Race, Ethnicity and Culture in and Outside the Therapy Room - A Conference for Trainers, Practitioners, Students and Academics.

When: Friday, 15th July 2022, 7:00 pm

Where: ONLINE with Onlinevents

Onlinevents and PCCS Books are delighted to announce a one-day conference, in association with the editors of the recently published book, Black Identities + White Therapies (PCCS Books, 2021).

The online conference will run from 15-16th July 2022. It will offer a combination of keynote speakers, panel discussions and a wide-ranging choice of practical workshops.

Our aim is to provide a space for students, trainers, practitioners and researchers to explore and showcase best practice in:

challenging race discrimination and white fragility within the counselling professions
developing new ways of preparing students to work in our multicultural society
finding new ways to offer therapy to a diverse population
increasing access to talking therapies for people from minoritised racial groups
promoting black, Asian and minority ethnic presence within the profession at all levels

The conference will open in the evening of Friday 15 July with a panel debate on a topical issue, followed by a social gathering and party for participants.

On Saturday, there will be an opening keynote address, followed by workshops of between 45 and 90 minutes, organised in four streams to reflect the four primary sectors of interest:

Trainers and lecturers
Following a break for lunch, we will reconvene for a second keynote presentation, followed by a further choice of workshops across the same four streams.

The event will close with a keynote presentation and discussion forum where participants can reflect and report on what has arisen for them in the workshops and discuss ways forward for the profession.
