Research by the NHS Race and Health Observatory shows that
ethnic minority communities are less likely to access NHS Talking Therapy
services and are more likely to have poorer therapy outcomes. The workshop
will explore ways of engaging and working with ethnic minority communities to
improve their mental health outcomes. This will be an interactive workshop
where practitioners will learn how to adapt psychological therapy, building
cultural competence and cultural humility.
The speaker, Saiqa Naz, hopes to create a safe space for
practitioners. She will draw upon her latest research on minority stress
hypothesis and ethnic density effect to explore factors that may
contribute to the development and maintenance of psychological distress and the
workshop will look at the components of CBT i.e. the belief systems, and how to
adapt the model culturally to facilitate improved care. It aims to help
participants develop their confidence in delivering culturally sensitive care
for ethnic minority populations, which in turn serves to improve access,
engagement and recovery. The session will give attendees practical experience
and knowledge of how to culturally adapt CBT, it will look at ‘helpful and
unhelpful’ things to do in therapy and how we can work with and engage ethnic
minorities in line with BABCP’s
This workshop is
appropriate for all CBT practitioners, including Wellbeing Practitioners and
Learning outcomes1. To learn how to culturally adapt CBT2. To increase engagement of ethic minorities in psychological therapy3. To provide safe and effective care for clients
