Seminar: The Value of Transcultural Family/System Therapy in Child and Youth Care

Upcoming EASA Anthropology of Children and Youth Seminar: Friday 15 January 10.30-12.00 (location: to be confirmed):

The Value of Transcultural Family/System Therapy in Child and Youth Care

Dirck van Bekkum & Judith Limahelu (see below for professional bio)

Abstract

Rarely anthropology and family therapy met but when they do research, educational and clinical innovation can be achieved. In their interactive presentation, Van Bekkum and Limahelu will discuss three of these innovations in co-educating transcultural family therapists. They concern: (1) Transgenerational Cultural Diversity and Intersectionality; (2) A transitional model in multicultural settings; (3) Systemic reflexivity in research, activism and clinical practices. Children and youth (including their generational networks) are at the core of these approaches. After short ‘vignette’ presentations of these three innovations, the presenters will answer questions and exchange views with the audience.
