BAATN offers healing and learning spaces for therapist and others in the helping professions. Therapist Connect is about being supported, feeling connected and being inspired in our roles as therapy practitioners and caring professionals. Through connection rather than isolation there can be a liberation of energy and the development of our inner resources with which to pursue our ideals, as we face a radicalised world.
Therapist Connect Gatherings – These gatherings 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 qualified therapists. These gatherings are free to members.
Therapist Connect Training and Forums – These events provide professional skills development for all across the therapy profession, regardless of background.
Facilitators of BAATN Gatherings, Trainings and Forums are qualified psychotherapists, counsellors or psychologists who have signed up to BAATN’s Core Values and Beliefs statement.
