About The Event
Dr Yvette Arthur, Dr Haben Ghezai, Dr Nancy Nsiah and Dr Prabhleen Sandhu are Clinical Psychologists who collectively form the Intercultural Psychology consultants. IPC offers specialist consultation, workshops, teaching and therapy on topics relating to race, culture and religion as it pertains to mental health and wellbeing. In their chapter entitled 'Reflections on race, religion and wellbeing', they explore how they have centered faith whilst navigating the intersections of their professional and personal identities as women from racially marginalised backgrounds. The book chapter aims to challenge readers to consider the value of integrating religion/spirituality and race within their therapeutic practice, whilst reflecting on how their own personal experiences of faith have sustained them through the practical and emotional challenges of centering anti-discriminatory practice.
