The complexity of working with ‘race’ and cultural differences within the Family Therapy field, remains underestimated, and occupies only a marginal position in social and mental health care. Consequently, inequalities in mental health continue, and they can go unnoticed. Therefore, it is important we develop a greater understanding of the histories, values, and expectations for diverse families and individuals we encounter. Other core themes also resonating throughout family work are: religious and spiritual beliefs, historical circumstances, immigration histories, and experiences with racism and prejudice, and they appear to influence contemporary family strengths and struggles.
This one-day conference will explore these complexities and debate the critical perspectives, themes, and concepts within the field of Family Therapy with BME communities. A range of illustrative case studies, clinical practices, and research will be presented by eminent thinkers and practitioners in psychotherapy and social sciences.
This conference will be relevant to all professionals in the field of Mental Health and Social Care, including those from Local Authorities and NHS trusts across the UK, Social Workers, Approved Mental Health Professionals, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Early Intervention Teams, CPN’s, OT’s, Chaplains, Community Faith Leaders & Healers, Equality Leads, Community Development Workers, Service User Representatives, Charities, Third Sector, Educational Establishments, Academics and Policy makers.
