About Us

  • Rakhawy Institute for Training and Research (RITR) is an NGO founded by Prof. Mona Rakhawy to consolidate, continue and expand authentic psychotherapy and related practices in Egypt and the world.

  • The practice of psychotherapy owes much to the lifelong efforts of Prof. Yehia Rakhawy who has mentored generations of professionals over the last 50 years. Using group psychotherapy and therapeutic community/milieu therapy, he has trained skillful specialists that spread his approach around the world. One of the aims of RITR is to acknowledge and crown this rich legacy.

  • RITR also works to expand the therapeutic community to a specialized training community. Our services encompass the mental health field and hold a deep commitment to the community at large.
