Resumen

MOTSI, Ray G.  y  MASANGO, Maake J.. Redefining trauma in an African context: a challenge to pastoral care. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2012, vol.68, n.1, pp.96-104. ISSN 2072-8050.

The article attempted to analyse critically the definition of trauma as it is used in the Western medical and psychiatry contexts in order to come up with an appropriate African definition. This was undertaken with the view to demonstrate that the Western worldview is different from the African worldview. Superimposing solutions or providing pre-packed answers to unique African problems will lead only to re-traumatisation, whereas cultural sensitivity and the right diagnosis will lead to the correct treatment. The driving force behind this article was therefore to aim to be relevant, effective and contextual in all African-based pastoral care.
