Apartheid's Colonial Health and Mental Disorders: Fractured Consciousness and Shattered Identities

Whenever I write about the past Apartheid regime's deeds on the African people, these are not merely notes as to the evilness or badness of the system, which it was, it is about the long term effects and affects these deeds, mistreatment or however one chooses to characterize, on the African population for generations and centuries on end, up to until today; also, a very important point worth noting is that this is written from an African point of view.

When we deal with the History and story of African people in South Africa or anywhere in the world(Diaspora) we ought to listen to their accounts from their own perspective, maybe in so doing, this will hasten the healing of societies,

Guideline for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pancreatitis.

Diagnosis and medical management

1.1 Background



Chronic pancreatitis (CP) is defined as a continuing inflammatory

disease of the pancreas characterised by irreversible morphological

changes, often associated with pain and with the loss of exocrine and/or

endocrine function which may be clinically relevant. (1) Alcohol is the

predominant cause of CP in the Western world, and is particularly

prevalent in South Africa (2) (Table I). Changing patterns of alcohol

consumption and the availability of more sensitive diagnostic tests have

led to the conclusion that CP is even more prevalent than previously

Thirty years of explicitly integrative scholarship: comparing PhD and PsyD contributions.



Johnson and McMinn (2003; see also McMinn, Johnson & Haskell,

2003) challenged integrative clinical psychology doctoral programs to

show that PhDs produce scholarship and teach in the academy at rates

that are demonstrably different from PsyDs. The entire publication

history through 2002 of the two most influential integrative

journals--the Journal of Psychology and Theology (JPT) and the Journal

of Psychology and Christianity (JPC)--was analyzed to determine

years, integrative PhDs produced four times as much scholarship as

PsyDs. By 2002, PhDs he

Two complementary views of peacemaking: the Palestinian-Israeli case.

The Palestinian-Israeli dispute is an archetypical example of an

intractable conflict: a protracted, violent, drawn-out struggle in which

generation after generation is socially conditioned to continue

fighting. The phenomenon perpetuates a destructive evolutionary

mechanism: almost every element that benefits the conflict survives,

while whatever operates against it becomes extinct. In order to change

this progression, a beneficial revolutionary process is required that

would bring the peace process to the point of no return, a place where

extremists, radicals and "professional" spoilers cannot stop

the progression toward resolu
