Coalition for Inclusion and Anti-Oppressive Practice

Coalition for Inclusion and Anti-Oppressive Practice

The Coalition for Inclusion and Anti-Oppressive Practice brings together organisations with a shared mission to improve diversity within the counselling, psychotherapy and psychological therapy professions.

Race is complicated - a toolkit for psychological therapies training

Following consultation with trainers and training providers in February 2021, the Coalition partners agreed to commission and deploy a toolkit to support the development of skills, knowledge and understanding for delivering inclusive counselling and psychotherapy training across a range of learning organisations.

With an initial focus on race and ethnicity, the primary objective of the toolkit is to help the counselling and psychotherapy sectors better understand and address race and diversity. The toolkit provides support on three areas of course provision: the institution, the training programme, and the individual tutor.
