Inner city schools, Cape Town RSA

TraumaClinic provides counselling and support at under-resourced schools in Cape Town. Learners come from communities and townships where they are exposed to severe and repeated trauma. TraumaClinic has developed a model to reach at-risk teenagers in these schools and provides counselling and support to individuals and groups.

Internship and work placement

Internship positions for local and international students in Psychology are available; an opportunity to gain ground breaking practical experience in the field of psychological trauma. Under the guidance and supervision of our registered psychologists, students offer counselling, help and support to learners aged 13 – 18.

WHY?

Children in South African townships live violent and abusive lives. Exposed to community and family violence, gangsterism, abuse and neglect, they experience trauma which is both continuous and repetitive. Our approach, based on Conservation of Resources Theory, is often the only source of support in an uncaring and under-resourced world.

HOW?

Approaching the problem through schools gives us access to the at-risk children in these impoverished communities. Our schools programme provides a central and safe place for learners to access counselling and intervention; and for teacher to access support.

WHAT?

Interns are placed three days a week at schools, where the learners voluntarily approach the counsellors and / or teachers refer them when they see problems, often manifested as disciplinary issues. The other two days are reserved for case discussion, supervision and training at our offices in Central Cape Town.
