A Cultural Lens in Therapy

  • Are you curious about people from different cultures, but find you have few opportunities to interact with them?
  • Do you value ethnic diversity and all that it could bring to your life and work, but find that your circle of friends & clients is not very diverse?
  • Would you appreciate an opportunity to learn through storytelling about people whose lived experiences might be quite different from your own?

If the answer to these questions is "yes", then we have the workshop for you!

Join us at the International Conference on Cultural Lens in Therapy, and  learn about more than twenty different cultures, by way of true stories from experts all over the world.

Because Stories Matter!
Stories heal.
Stories connect us to each other at the deepest levels.
We invite each other to the unseen, untold, unheard parts of us.
We create bridges by unfolding our stories from one culture to another.

Culture is essential to everyone's core meaning-making processes.
Cultural values shape our relationships, ways of behaving, thinking, feeling, sensing ourselves, and our core beliefs.

Culture is not a thing that a person 'has', but an integral part of every person's way of processing.

A Cultural Lens is the way you perceive the diverse cultures that exist in society.

At this conference we will learn how to apply our cultural lens in therapy, in order to become more accessible, responsive and engaging in our ongoing professional relationship with clients, and we explore how the use of a cultural lens can act as a tool for avoiding mistakes and creating a deeper connection.

Raha Foundation is proud to present a storytelling series from around the globe:
A Cultural Lens in Therapy
Join us March 4th & 5th, 2022

20 speakers---from Iran to The Netherlands to Uganda and beyond--- share their personal stories of how culture helped shape them.

Like a sight-seeing bus, you can "hop on" to the segments you'd like to hear and "hop off" if you need to step away, *all from the comfort of your home or office, with no COVID test required!

*CEU's can only be awarded to participants who attend all segments.
