HAVE WESTERN MENTAL HEALTH WORKERS LOST THE PLOT?



I recently read a post on Facebook about an interview with a Rhawandan refugee who had escaped the genocide in Rhawanda.
He said after the genocide western mental health workers were called in to help.
The only problem was there was no mention of the people participating in outdoor activities and using the healing energies of the sun to help them recover.
There was no mention of the people drumming and dancing to get the blood flowing again.
There was no mention of the tribe gathering and singing and telling jokes. In order to lift everyones spirits.
All the western mental health workers wanted to do was sit in dingy rooms and discuss all the bad things that had happened.
The refugee said, “We had to ask them to leave”
