In this workshop Baffour will review the practice of intercultural therapy at Nafsiyat, set up by Jafar Kareem in the 1980s with the specific task of offering psychodynamic psychotherapy to Britain’s black and ethnic minority population. He will reflect on what has changed, or not changed since Nafsiyat’s inception. Through intercultural principles and case material he will explore the interplay and dynamics of the inner worlds of dominant and minority communities and practice implications in the Intercultural therapeutic encounter. The workshop will elaborate on how counsellors, psychotherapists and supervisors could attend to and support these concepts in the supervision space, and better understand the urge to sometimes minimise, avoid or distort intercultural practice in supervision.
Baffour Ababio grew up in Ghana, he is a psychoanalytic intercultural psychotherapist in private practice and clinical supervisor at Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre. Baffour completed his training at University College London and the Guild of Psychotherapists and is a member of UKCP and BAPPS (British Association for Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervision). Alongside his clinical role Baffour developed a career in managing mental health services integrating a community-based response to support recovery from a broad range of mental health problems. With Roland Littlewood he has co-edited a volume on intercultural psychotherapy entitled Intercultural Therapy: Challenges, Insights and Developments (2019).
