The Friday Stand-In 2016

Psychologist Nomfundo Walaza on the trauma of student protests (and the healing)

Psychologist, human rights activist and acting director at Inyathelo, Nomfundo Walaza, says her #FridayStandIn show will look at the psychological implications of the violence and trauma on those involved in the Fees Must Fall and Rhodes Must Fall movements.

What are the traumas that have been visited by students and university leadership and those that have been involved.

Nomfundo Walaza, #FridayStandIn

We need to have a conversation as to what is going to be left behind when everything goes back to normal, because we have not even seen the psychological impact this has had to all of us.

Nomfundo Walaza, #FridayStandIn

She plans to look at the wounds...but hopes to end on a positive note and focus on the healing needed as well.

After we have said what that trauma looks like, how do we heal it in a context of decolonised country.

Nomfundo Walaza, #FridayStandIn

Listen to the audio below to hear more about what's coming up on the show...

She says she also wants to look at the leadership position of civil society in the context of current political dynamics in the country.

Walaza is also the former executive director of the Trauma Centre for Survivors of Violence and Torture in Cape Town.
