Intercultural counselor

A project by the Herbstmühle psychological counseling center in Wipperfürth

Modeled after the project “Baby im Blick” (Baby in focus), the Herbstmühle psychological counseling center in Wipperfürth offers a counseling service for immigrant families, especially for Turkish-speaking families. Since the process of immigration is very frequently accompanied by heavy burdens, which can lead to developmental disorders or even psychological illness in children and youth, it is important to provide support early on. A critical element here is language. Family counseling cannot be successful without joint opportunities for communication based on a knowledge of the characteristics of a culture. The intercultural counselor has been employed since May 2015.
