This is not a Traditional Healers or Bone Throwing course, but a practical experience and understanding of the specific cultural psychological issues as experienced by African People. The course covers the practical component of dealing with specific issues of people affected by Muti, Witchcraft, Tokoloshes, Curses and emotional/physical suffering, due to not living within the prescribed moral standards of their belief system, or who are victims of others causing them harm.

In Ethnopsychology 2 the student is introduced to the Essential guide for Culture-Sensitive Healthcare: Case of AbaNguni, covering diseases like umkuhlane, isithuthwane (epilepsy), isifuba somoya (asthma) and uhlanya (schizophrenia) and more.

Another section deals with ukufa kwabantu (metaphysical disorders), and a third part of the course deals with spirit possession. The treatment of metaphysical disorders is discussed with regards to Animistic Theories, Amashwa (bad luck), umhlonyane (a cultural requirement closely related to usiko.

The module of Ethnopsychology also brings the African Healing Concept into the higher metaphysical teachings, giving the student an understanding of the various spiritual realms, and its place in bridging African Traditional Healing, Traditional Psychology and Ancient Wisdom teachings.

This module is very intense, with lots of student practical and demonstrations. In this module we demonstrate and deal with the typical psychological issues experience by many South Africans, and in particular the interplay between consulting Traditional Healers of various types and with different moral values.

The student learns practical methods to treat the typical African person in a Traditional Psychological manner that resonates with his upbringing, environment, belief system and unique worldview.

Students learn during this module how to bridge the concept of Western Psychology and African Traditional Psychology and the value of Counselling in a specific manner, based on African Tradition diagnostic methods.
