What Therapy In Colour’s endorsers are saying

A book like this is a bit like a rare event. It therefore deserves to be both witnessed and read and studied’.

Dr Dwight Turner, Course Leader in Humanistic Psychotherapy, University of Brighton and author of Intersections of Privilege and Otherness in Counselling and Psychotherapy

‘The heart of the book is the intense and personable way each author writes about raciality, racism and the need for introspection into the patient as well as the therapeutic process’.

Fanny Brewster, PhD, MFA, LP, author of The Racial Complex: A Jungian Perspective on Culture and Race

‘This new book deftly navigates readers through a path that deeply analyses Eurocentric ‘givens and perspectives’ on issues relating to mental health and trauma. A core tenet is the reconfiguration of therapy by taking stock of Black communities’ historical lived experience and drawing upon their cultural traditions to enrich therapeutic practice. If you are interested in anti-racist therapeutic practice, this book is a must-read’.

David Weaver, President of BACP
