Many therapists want to help folks in their neighborhoods who operate in very different cultural groups. To provide culturally sensitive support and to generate interventions with the aid of the client and others in the community are skills that are cultivated over time. In this webinar, we discuss and show video clips of strategies we used with couples in Sierra Leone who’d experienced intimate partner, gender-based violence. We provide tips for developing a practice unconstrained by cultural borders.
