Ethnopsychology

What is Ethnopsychology

Ethnopsychology is the bridge between Western Psychology and the ways of the African People. African people have specific problems that relate to their various belief systems; it is thus almost impossible for a psychologist to understand and treat the person, unless they have training in both fields, with a wider view of different religions and cultures.

How to Become an Ethnopshycologist

In order to become an Ethnopsychologist, one has to have a basic understanding of how the mind works, and how we function as a soul in a physical human body. We have to start with the basics, and learn in Basic Trance State Therapy, how the conscious-, subconscious- and superconscious minds work, where it is, and how it stores and retrieves information.


We have to understand how to easily find events that cause emotional and physical problems, by bypassing the critical faculty, in order to get to the original event that is causing the problem today. Once we know how to get into the subconscious- and superconscious mind, we can assist our patient to re-live the experience, understand why and forgive all involved. There is value in giving positive suggestions; they have a cumulative effect, but will have very little value unless we can find the ISE (Initial Sensitizing Event), which is the cause of the problem.

Hypnoanalysis gives us the tools to verify the events in the past, as we use Clinical Hypnoanalysis tools, consisting of a comprehensive Intake Form and a Word Association Test (WAT). 

Herbs/Ethnobotany Course

Ethnomedicine is a specialist area that is not restricted to describing “exotic” healing practices, but it actually offers practical help in everyday clinical medicine.

History

The history of African Traditional Medicine goes back as far as the emergence of mankind’s intellect on the African Continent. The science of traditional healing in Africa has been passed on through the generations. This method of healing has always been entrusted to the Sangoma and is regarded as secret “intellectual property.” Elders of this science and art painstakingly teach those members of the community that have a “calling” in the use of the art.
