The workshop is designed to give practitioners opportunities to think about how they engage clients from various cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We will examine approaches which foster good engagement but also allows us to better understand the lived experiences of our clients. The day will get you to consider what you bring to your professional encounters; also you will discover how you can adopt a number of methods to create good therapeutic alliances with a variety of clients.
