Welcome to Rafiki Consortium, a group of mental health professionals specializing in improving interpersonal and intrapersonal communication within human systems. Survival in the twenty-first century requires that communities have an effective and efficient process of working together. Rafiki offers customized interventions to public and private agencies, educational and human service institutions, community networks, and religious institutions that facilitate better working relationships among members of their stakeholder networks. Rafiki specializes in facilitating cross-cultural communications, that may include assisting stakeholders from differing backgrounds (classes, races, professions, genders, ages, etc.) and with differing perspectives, experience the common ground that is the basis for productive planning that addresses the needs of all involved parties. This consciousness raising consensus building process is based on the assumption that all people have good intentions and given enough support and skillful assistance, will respond positively.
