Webinar Description: Being a counsellor working online with people from different ethnicities is a huge challenge.  Integrating disciplines that address intercultural matters creates opportunities for counsellors to  widen their multicultural perspectives and imagination.  It adds to the set of tools that each professional has and encourages a mind-set that allows the transcendence of cultural bias – thereby creating a safe space for the client to unfold their worldview. This webinar is a reflection on the connection between cultural anthropology and transcultural counselling -- focusing on a concept that is common to both practices: cultural relativism. It is a 60 minute webinar that includes a space for participants to engage actively in the process.
