Student Support Group
A support group for those of African, Asian and Caribbean heritage who are training to become psychotherapist and counsellors.
Training to become a Black or Asian psychotherapist or counsellor presents us with the challenge of finding our voice within the silence of our minority experience. The BAAT Network Student Support Groups provide a space for students with an African, Asian or Caribbean heritage to tell their stories, clarify their dilemmas, and be met with enthusiasm, dialogue and support.
Venue: Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre, London N4 3JP
Cost: Free to student members, £7 non members
Dates: Saturday 02nd August 2014
Time: 10:30 - 13:00

‘Black and Asian Student Mentoring Project’
Students who are Black and Asian often feel that therapeutic discussions in their training courses do not offer space and support for considering their race and culture, an essential part of their experience, nor are they trained in Black issues in the therapeutic process.
For this reason the UKCP are supporting a mentoring programme to support Black and Asian Students through their studies.
If you are an experienced Black and Asian counsellor or psychotherapist, we are looking for your knowledge and expertise to make this mentoring programme a continuing success. Our aim is simply to provide help and support to Black and Asian students who are still in counselling or psychotherapy training or on their way to qualification, by way of offering a free mentoring service.
The Programme is set up for 6 months within the academic year so will run from (January 2014 to July 2014 - closing date for mentor and mentee applications is 6th Dec 2013)
