African wise sayings come in handy in modern day parenting

When two Cabinet Secretaries brave the morning chill to officiate at a 7am book launch, that is a statement on the importance they attach to the publication.

That was the case on Friday, July 29, when Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his Lands counterpart, Prof Jacob Kaimenyi, spoke at the launch of clinical psychologist Gladys Mwiti’s book, Parenting With Purpose & African Wisdom.

The 278-page product of Arba Publications could not be more timely, as Prof Kaimenyi took the opportunity to address rampant unrest in schools when he introduced, Dr Matiang’i, the guest of honour. He debunked the opinion that Dr Matiang’i’s crackdown on cheating cartels in the education sector was the cause of unrest in schools that has seen more than 100 schools torched.


Oasis Africa Trains Participants on PFA/SPR

Oasis Africa saw twenty four (24) Psychologists and Counsellors undergo Psychological First Aid (PFA) and Skills for Psychological Recovery (SPR) training. Dr. Gladys Mwiti, Consulting Clinical Psychologist &CEO of Oasis Africa took this team through PFA while Dr. Oscar Githua, Forensic Psychologist trained the group on SPR.

The training that took place on 4th June 2016 focused on equipping the participants with skills that they could apply in their various areas of specialization and also to the general population given the many traumatic occurrences all over the country.

Psychological First Aid is an evidence- informed modular approach to people in all stages of development in the immediate aftermath of disaster and terrorism. It is designed to reduce the initial distress caused by traumatic events and to foster short and long- term adaptive functioning and coping.

Skills for Psychological Recovery is an evidence-informed modular approach to help individuals and families in the weeks and months following disaster and trauma, after the period where Psychological First Aid (PFA) has been utilized or when more intensive intervention than PFA is needed.
