What delegates have said:


Excellent, professionally delivered, truly innovative and ground breaking!

The conference provided a rare moment of connection, recognition, powerful truth and soothing – thank you – Patmarie

The significance of a powerful and growing black presence within the therapy workforce.

I think it is extremely important and needed to have a conference on self-care and action, in a space that feels safe and holding. Appreciative of BAATN’s initiative on this. Pedro

It was an enriching experience. The people I met in the breakaway group were full of passion and energy. They were respectful and professional. I find BAATN to be an amazing and supportive organisation. Michelle O’Neill

BAATN has created a truly nourishing event that should be experienced more frequently for it’s people of colour.

Sharing experiences we are all impacted by nurturing. It was useful to have so many experienced members, who were encouraging, uplifting, and inspiring to facilitating us embracing our experiences and think about ways forward. Keeping the flames of hope burning bright. The pebbles in the ocean of change matters.

Keep up the excellent work. Your space is much needed by those BAME therapists out there and those training to get out there.

Soul got important nourishment. One of the few forums where I gain both spiritually and professionally. I’m very thankful for it. Wayne Mertins-Brown

Booking closes on Friday 3rd November, 1 pm.

This conference is for people of African, Asian and Caribbean heritage. The conference is also open to other People of Colour who are also affected by prejudice due to the colour of their skin and global white power.
