NTU: An African-Centered Approach to Healing and Wellness
Public Programs and Performances WKS 121 1.00
NTU Psychotherapy is an approach to working with families that allows them to recognize and tap into their inner strength for healing and oneness, understanding that healing is a natural process. NTU interventionists use spirituality-focused, culturally-competent interventions to facilitate the healing process. This workshop will introduce participants to the basic elements of the NTU approach and through didactic and experiential delivery, show its application to a range of human service practices. Additionally, the presenters will share empirical data that demonstrate positive outcomes for individuals and families served. Finally, participants will be exposed to practical tools and examples that will make the content relevant and useful in practice with urban communities.
