Mental Health & Psychotherapy Training & Research
Rakhawy Training and Research Institute crowns the rich history of Professor Yehia Rakhawy School as it is the first harmonious and integrative training community.
We strive to emphasize professional values, principles and practices through training and research based on the Rakhawy school's comprehensive principles, which align with other constructive schools.
Our team comprises a group of Egyptian and international professionals in psychiatry & psychotherapy under the supervision of Professor Mona Rakhawy.
Together, we will work on utilizing our diverse creative potential and will cooperate with different academic and professional resources to keep up with the latest in the field. We will also support intergenerational exchange of experiences to shape distinguished generations on the way to building capable and effective individuals and societies.
WE EDUCATE the public about mental health issues, treatment, the process of therapy, and the differences between healthy and unhealthy therapy.
WE EMPOWER all people’s wellness journeys through access to ethical, reliable, unbiased, and non-pathologizing mental health information as well as trained mental health professionals and approved treatment centers listed in our online directories.
WE CHALLENGE the myths, stereotypes, and stigmas that can surround mental health issues and treatment and prevent people from getting help.
WE FACILITATE a community of therapists and treatment facilities who believe in and adhere to principles of ethical therapy and are committed to reducing harm in therapy.
WE SUPPORT compassionate, collaborative therapists in their practices through access to quality continuing education events, up-to-date therapy news and information, and resources related to ethics and power dynamics in therapy.
WE ENCOURAGE Early Career Practitioners (ECP) to pursue research & training through providing the academic opportunities & financial support for the active participation in international academic and professional conferences and research exchange programs with partner universities’ programs.
We envision a mental health community in which therapists and clinicians are guided by their hearts as much as their minds, have the self-awareness and courage to do their own therapy when appropriate, avoid using the people they treat to meet their own needs or abuse their power, adhere to ethical principles, and treat all people with the dignity and respect they deserve.
We envision a mental health community in which clinicians view all people as capable of change. Far too often, people are seen as deficient and lacking what it takes to be healthy and happy. We work to eliminate this destructive trend. We encourage therapists to give people the benefit of the doubt by holding to the wisdom that people are born lovable, loving, and vulnerable beings, and to understand that people are shaped by their experiences and circumstances.
