The aspiration for this event is to start a dialogue with programme leaders, tutors, and educational institutions which can inform future diversity and inclusion standards and competences within the industry and practice, with an initial focus on race and ethnicity.
This has been a collaborative and cross-industry effort, with multiple organisations (including PCSR) invested in making real and positive change in Counselling and Psychotherapy training. The event includes an expert panel line-up, and is chaired by Kadra Abdinasir, Head of Children and Young People’s Mental Health at the Centre for Mental Health.
