BAATN Midlands Reading Group
Saturday 4th July 2020 - Central Birmingham, 2:30pm till 4:30pm
The BAATN Reading Group has been created for the practitioners amongst us that enjoy reading but find little space and time to immerse ourselves in the experiences of reading.
Online Gathering for Experienced Practitioners and Students
Saturday in 25 July 2020 - Via Zoom - 2pm to 4:30pm
The impact of current world events on us and our clients
In this gathering, we will discuss the effects of social media on how we relate to issues of race and racism.
Amongst our conversations, we will explore:
– What we have noticed in our online behaviour when our reflections are made through the lens of the personal, professional, family/friend and community?
– How might these digitalised conversations on race and racism be a resource and a restraint, opening possibility and problems in our therapeutic practice?
This online gathering will be facilitated by the Midlands team.
