Traditional Counselling: Theory, Practice and Research
By Hector Chiboola(Author)
Traditional counselling is an under-researched field, with inadequate scholarly documentation on the approaches, procedures and process outcomes that should motivate researchers, counselling psychologists and educationists to tap from the abundant unchartered waters. This book represents a major step towards narrowing these gaps. Its main contribution is the articulation of a theoretical framework of traditional counselling, the delineation of traditional counselling approaches and processes, and the clarification of the scope of problems apparent in the sphere of traditional counselling. Traditional counselling is rooted in traditional systems of knowledge and sociocultural values, customs and practices, is essentially community-based and multicultural in nature, and promotes a collective inclination to problem identification, resolution and management. This underscores the importance, relevance and usefulness of traditional counselling from an African perspective. The book is a thought-provoking investigation on counselling models.
