About Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy™
The Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy™ approach is an integration of African-centred therapy and Intercultural psychotherapy. This eclectic approach addresses culture, ethnicity, identity and spirituality in addition to psychological pathology. These elements are integral to working with ethnic minorities.
Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy™ considers ALL aspects that make an individual who they are, authentically holding the person at the center of their therapy.
Why the approach was developed
After specialising in childhood and sexual trauma for many years, the founder of Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy CIC noticed a pattern in client presentations. The multiple layers that contributed to the complexities of healing from trauma, were often entangled with racial and cultural considerations.
The lack of training on racial-cultural diversity, the impact of institutional racism and intersectionality, can contribute towards psychological practitioners and mental health workers lacking essential cultural competencies.
The Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy™ approach was developed to address this, and develop Intercultural communication skills.
What is African-centred Therapy?
African-centred therapy is relational in nature and is founded upon a humility approach to life. It promotes healing through interconnectedness with mind, body, spirit and the universe. Ancestral appreciation and community collectiveness aids the process of identifying your 'true self' through an African-centred lens. In addition to generational considerations, a safe space to explore racialised experiences and racial trauma is essential to the healing process for marginalised, minoritized & racialised groups.
Why Intercultural psychotherapy?
Intercultural Psychotherapy is culturally sensitive talking therapy. It considers racial-cultural beliefs and practices, spirituality and other intersectionality aspects. Intercultural practitioners benefit from exploring and reflecting on their own cultural identity in addition to facilitating the space for clients to explore theirs in a safe space. Recognition of the impact of racial adversities within the therapeutic process is fundamental to intercultural therapy.
Essentially, African centred therapy + intercultural psychotherapy = Mabadiliko Intercultural Therapy™.
