In these presentations we will be exploring the excellent work of Author Dr Elaine Arnold's "Working with the family of the African Caribbean origin".
The main aim is to highlight that a specific focus needs to be on the African Caribbean as recent mental health research points to the African Caribbean as the ethnic group in particular that is encountering many issues in regards to their neuropsychology, and these issues are more likely to be a result of the issues that attachment and separation will bring if misunderstood or not acknowledged at all.
Saturday 10th October 2020 - Workshop 1 (12.00 - 14.30): Have a better understanding of the African Caribbean personality by using attachment theory.
Saturday 5th December 2020 - Workshop 2 (12.00 - 14.30): Understanding how the history of the African Caribbean has contributed to poor mental health.
Saturday 6th March 2021- Workshop 3 (1200 - 14.30): Understanding the mental health needs of the African Caribbean.
