Overview

This book is developed from the framework of locating childhood and adolescence within the wider context of South African society. The merging world-view and identity of South African children are described. A portion of the book describes the psychological traumas associated with political unrest and a society undergoing major transition, paying particular attention to three major traumas: child abuse and neglect, children who have been the victims of an unjust and inequitable educational system, and children caught in the war of political violence. The book addresses issues within the South African context by recognizing the effects of the wider social, economic, and political setting. By promoting a better understanding of diverse cultures, a mechanism is in place for bringing about reconciliation in a divided society.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Taking post-apartheid South Africa as an example, offers guidance on how the helping professions can contribute to creating harmony in multiethnic societies. Describes current counseling and educational issues in the country and a myriad of disorders generated by structural inequality. Places individuals, especially children and adolescents, in the wider social, economic, and political context, and in the division of society into privileged and nonprivileged sectors. Annotation c.
