About Karin Taverniers

A native of Belgium, I have resided in many countries including the US, Canada, and various European and Latin American countries before settling down in Buenos Aires Argentina. This personal experience was mainly responsible for shaping my professional interest in intercultural issues.
I earned my BA from Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada), my MA from the United States International University (Mexico campus), a postgraduate degree in Systemic Psychotherapy from the Universidad de Buenos Aires (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and my PhD in Psychology from the Universidad del Salvador (Buenos Aires, Argentina). I am currently in private practice in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families of diverse cultural backgrounds, online as well as offline. I am also a university professor, a board member of the Asociación de Psicoterapia Sistémica de Buenos Aires, and an associate of the Fundación Centro de Estudios Sistémicos (associated with the Houston Galveston Institute). I am the editor-in-chief of the Argentinean family therapy journal Sistemas familiares y otros sistemas humanos, I hosts the online listserv community Postmodern Therapies (PMTH), and am the author of  Abuso emocional en la pareja: Construcciones y deconstrucciones de género, and have also written numerous articles on diverse relational and family issues. I lecture in national and international conferences on topics that range from the social construction of gender, abuse and violence, LGBT, to the influence of technology in human relationships.  I am an Associate of the Taos Institute, a --- dedicated to the application of social constructionist ideas in diverse areas. In addition, I am especially interested in collaborative and narrative practices, as well as reflecting processes. I am fluent in Spanish, English, Dutch, among others.
I am the owner of two websites, Intercultural-counseling.com, which describes my work with intercultural couples and families, and Relationalissues.com, which portrays my experience with gender abuse. You can also find me on LinkedIn and Twitter: @DrTaverniers, @ktaverniers and @taverniers.
I live with my daughter in the central part of Buenos Aires.
