BAATN provides healing and learning spaces for therapist and others in the helping professions. Through these types of connections, rather than separation and isolation, there is a liberation of energy and passion with which to pursue our ideals. There is also the development of an internal sense of safety with which to meet the many oppressions out there in the world.
Therapist Connect Gatherings, that bring together Black, African, Asian and Caribbean therapy professionals and others in the helping professions for mutual support and inspiration. There are also gatherings for students to support them through their journey of training to become a therapist. These gatherings are free to members.
Therapist Connect Training and Forums that provide professional skills development for all across the therapy profession, regardless of background.
Gathering, Training and Forum facilitators are qualified psychotherapists, counsellors or psychologists who have signed up to BAATN’s Core Values and Beliefs statement.
