In a world where mental health care is often inaccessible, especially for children, Global Therapists and its visionary founder, Dr. Lori Baudino, are on a mission to change the narrative. The G.L.O.B.A.L. Therapists Program is not just a program; it's a movement towards creating a legacy of mental healthcare across the globe. Let's delve into what makes Global Therapists unique and how it's making a significant impact on the lives of children and families worldwide.

Bridging the Gap for Children in Need

Global Therapists was born out of the need to bridge the gap between the mental health needs of children and the accessibility to qualified therapeutic care. The program places graduate students on the educational and career path to serve children in need with families seeking professional care in clinics around the world. The selected locations are based on clinic requests and are a result of collaborative efforts to share culturally relevant materials, customs, and procedures with the graduate students.

Guiding Principles for Global Impact

The Global Therapists Program operates on a set of guiding principles that reflect its commitment to cross-cultural practices, bravery in encountering new experiences, and awareness of diverse populations. The program aims not only to learn about different cultures but to adapt practices to meet the needs of children from all backgrounds. It holds space for the unification of health, celebrating, and fostering connection with the placement community.

Supporting Interns for Sustainable Impact

Recognizing the challenges faced by interns, Global Therapists provides comprehensive support to reduce implicit bias, prevent burnout, increase engagement, and foster open dialogue and ongoing learning. The collaboration with graduate schools and local clinic treatment teams ensures a holistic approach to mental health care that is culturally grounded by movement and the mind/body connection.

Dance/Movement Therapy: A Path to Healing

Central to the Global Therapists approach is Dance/Movement Therapy, an innovative therapeutic method that integrates movement and creative expression for healing and well-being. This non-verbal, embodied form of therapy has been shown to improve emotional regulation, enhance self-esteem, reduce stress, and foster overall mental and physical well-being.

Dr. Lori Baudino: A Visionary Leader

Global Therapists is the brainchild of Dr. Lori Baudino, a practicing clinician with over two decades of experience in mental health care. Dr. Baudino's passion for helping others led her to forge her own path to gain the qualifications and placements needed to make a meaningful impact. Her journey inspired the creation of Global Therapists, connecting universities and treatment centers globally to provide graduate students with the international placement, supervision, and cultural training necessary to become qualified mental health professionals.
