Jafar Kareem Bursary

Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre

Jafar Kareem Bursary

(for ethnic minority trainees)

Following the untimely death of Jafar Kareem (founder of Nafsiyat), a Fund was set up in his memory by his family and friends. The main purpose of the Fund is to provide bursaries to ethnic minority students to help with the costs of their psychotherapy training.

Jafar always lamented the lack of ethnic minority psychotherapists and wanted to find ways of helping more diverse individuals to train in the discipline.  Hence the purpose of the Memorial Fund. The Trustees intend to award one bursary of between £1000 and £3000 to an ethnic minority student. The student should have completed at least two years of a qualifying course in psychodynamic psychotherapy (accredited by BPC or CPJA). The recipient of the bursary will be expected to assist in the clinical work of Nafsiyat during that year.

Please bring this bursary to the attention of anyone who could benefit from it.
