Gatherings for Experienced Practitioners and Students – Bristol

This is a Closed Practitioner Event

These gatherings will be held in Bristol for therapy practitioners of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean Heritage. These gatherings are also open to other people of colour who are affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power.

Separate spaces will be held for experienced practitioners and students.

The groups aim – to connect with other working therapists of colour, to gain support with developing ourselves as practitioners and to leave the group energised and inspired.

To find out about the kinds of themes or topics under discussion, as well as projects that individual groups are in the process of undertaking at some of the other BAATN gatherings, please take a look here.
