We recognize the importance of community as well as the diversification of perspectives in mental health as supporting professional development. The work of therapy occurs in isolation, which is both a lonely endeavor and does little to expand the ways in which we might approach the work with our clients. Our solution to these challenges is the inclusion of an online membership community that is designed to be globally accessible. KALOS by ITTC is a kaleidoscopic platform for learning specifically designed to expand the lenses through which we view mental health conditions. Our online global community was designed to provide support, learning, and growth.
The definition of kaleidoscope is rooted in Greek language that combines the following 3 words:
Skopos: either the looker or the object being observed.
To us, a kaleidoscope captures the heart of what we are trying to achieve within our global mental health community. Just as this fascinating childhood toy has encouraged curiosity and creativity, it also demonstrates the various ways in which the world can be viewed.
These instruments provide and create a variety of patterns, shapes, and color combinations. Light, mirrors, and reflections render uniquely lovely images with infinite possibilities. There is beauty in approaching the world with dimension. That beauty can shape the way we work, interact, interpret problems and identify solutions.
Kaleidoscope carries a second meaning, which is a swarm of butterflies. The butterfly has always been a striking symbol of transformation, bringing with it hope, change, and new beginnings. These are the ingredients of post-traumatic growth.
Views of mental health have historically been dominated by a singular western lens. The tunnel vision is arguably maintained by the isolative nature of providing care. Our KALOS community was created as an effort to decrease professional isolation while expanding the lenses through which we view mental health challenges. Each culture offers its' own unique definition of what a problem is as well as its' own solution. Diversifying cultural voices within our field provides an opportunity for us to learn from and share with each other. Our aim is to build a global community of mental health professionals who want to expand their network, grow connections beyond their borders, and who want to expand their professional viewpoints.
Overarchingly, we hope to diversify and elevate marginalized voices within the United States as well as beyond our borders.
How are we different?
KALOS aims to support mental health professionals in prioritizing learning with and from other cultural viewpoints. Looking at challenges through a variety of lenses can foster self-reflection while simultaneously expanding our skill set. Our KALOS communities were designed to help build global connections, cultivate humility, and expand our skills all with a solution-focused approach in mind.
With our KALOS Community, you will have the opportunity to learn from and connect with other like-minded professionals through:
• Online Forums
