Over 400 counselors got to work immediately post-Westgate attack and most are still working non-stop to provide all the assistance to the victims. This information and many more interesting tips and just insight into what trauma is and how it can be managed was brought to light by Dr Gladys K Mwiti, consultant clinical psychologist Oasis Africa on Saturday 12th October at the Oswhal Centre. This was a talk organized by the Festival of Friendship and titled “moving on-stronger”. Dr Gladys Mwiti told me that “life is like the waves of the sea and sometimes there is a storm and a hard fall, with a lot of self care and community connections you can make it out all well and stronger.” After the Kenyan National Anthem there was a minute of silence and the night kicked off with a stand up song by Rohan Gandhi “I cried for My Nation” and it ended with a hopeful song by Harleen Matharu. Asians have always found going to a psychologist as taboo so it was important to bring to their attention the after symptoms which will require professional help especially for those who lost a very close member of their life.
