    Professor Kandola focuses on ethnicity in 'practice', specifically, how bias operates in organisations. He covers neuropsychological research and its role on implicit associations, how the way we socialise and interact in the workplace impacts on minority group members and how stereotyping and assumptions not only impact decisions but also the behaviour of minority group members themselves at work.

    We enjoyed interviewing Colin Lago about his new book "The Handbook of Transcultural Counselling and Psychotherapy". This new book is a seminal work which brings together recent critical thinking and research and the exploration of the impact of different cultural heritages upon potential clients and therapists. Colin's passion is for working with transcultural experiences in therapy and this has meant that he has worked tirelessly around the globe facilitating thousands of practitioners to think about their own work and their capacity to be with difference in the therapy room. The interview is an opportunity to get a taste of Colin's passion for this work and to think about the implications for counselling training and our work as practitioners. There will also be space to share in the experience by putting your questions to Colin. This event will be the first in a series on Transcultural Counselling and Psychotherapy where we hope to interview many of the authors who have contributed to the book. Colin Lago was Director of the Counselling Service at the University of Sheffield from 1987 -- 2003. He now works as an independent counsellor, trainer, supervisor and consultant. Trained initially as an engineer, Colin went on to become a full time youth worker in London and then a teacher in Jamaica. He is a Fellow of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, an accredited counsellor and trainer and UKRC registered practitioner.

    As part of the preparations for the Transcultural conference that Colin Lago is organising in partnership with Leed's Metropolitan University, Divine Charura has agreed to offer this interview. Following the release of "The Handbook of Transcultural Counselling and Psychotherapy" edited by Colin Lago this conference is being planned to offer a forum in which to further our personal and collective exploration in this vital field. Divine Charura has contributed the chapter "The effects of an African heritage" to "The Handbook of Transcultural Counselling and Psychotherapy" edited by Colin Lago. The chapter "explores the general, historic, cultural, religious and other influences of an African heritage and considers how these influences might impact a therapeutic relationship conducted in another country where the cultural style is different." In the chapter Divine also proposes 10 principles to consider when working with individuals of African heritage. This work is a rich resource for therapists, helping to expand our own world view and openness to the other. Divine is passionate about therapists cultural competence starting with our ability to first of all know and have empathy for our own cultural heritage. From this self exploration we are more able to be empathic towards another's cultural heritage, creating more helpful therapeutic relationships. This interview will expand our own knowledge of African heritage, give us an opportunity to learn from Divine's experience and hopefully serve as a catalyst for our personal development in this vital area of exploration.
