As male therapists of Black, African, South Asian and Caribbean heritages this is a space to connect through shared experience, learn from one another and inspire each other. 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. Together we will create a space where we can articulate our voice around our inner journeys and from this place find ways to express our voice out in the world.
The day-long format for the gatherings will consist of a main presentation followed by discussion, with a focus on how we connect as men and how we can become more authentic with ourselves and with each other.
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.
