Psychology graduate serves local community

Mon, 03/25/2019 - 14:57

Find out how a psychology graduate is making South Africa a better place with a Master's Degree in gender studies.

Find out how a psychology graduate is making South Africa a better place with a Master's Degree in gender studies.

Avri Spilka is a remarkable woman. What she’s achieved in her 38 years is more than most will accomplish in a lifetime. She has a degree in Journalism and Media Studies, a Higher Diploma in Media Studies, an Expert Diploma in Sexology, a certificate in Counselling Children and Adolescents, an Honours Degree in Applied Social Science (from SACAP) and she recently completed her Masters in Community-Based Counselling Psychology at WITS University. Phew, impressive!

And, as if her list of accolades isn’t inspiring enough, Avri’s also a member of the Psychological Society of South Africa (Gender and Sexuality division), an associate of the Sexual and Reproductive Justice Coalition as well as an executive member of The Southern African Sexual Health Association. We chatted to her about some of the essential elements behind her glittering career trajectory.

First steps

“I’ve always loved storytelling in its various guises and I think this informed my interest in people,” says Avri as a means of explaining her interest in psychology. “My mother was a psychologist and I’ve always been interested in people and their stories.” Between her teens and early thirties Avri says she became increasingly interested in sexuality, gender and relationships. “I wrote a lot about these topics and became an activist and peer educator. I think my love of storytelling and sexuality has led me to pursue a career in sexology, which for me is a specialised branch of psychology.

In order to strengthen her psychology foundation Avri enrolled in the Honours in Applied Social Science (Psychology) Degree at SACAP. “I was drawn to the small campus, small classes and being lectured by practicing professionals,” she says. “I loved the in-depth discussions and the freedom regarding topics or angles when writing academic essays.”

Avri’s Honours degree opened the door for her admission into the next stepping-stone on her expanding career path: Community-Based Counselling Psychology. “It’s a Masters programme that focuses on community level psychology,” she explains. “There are too few mental health professionals in this country to meet its mental health needs, and individual therapy is not something most people can access or afford. This programme looks at ways to tackle mental health at a broader level in terms of working with whole communities. It also places an emphasis on transforming the very factors that contribute to social, psychological, political, cultural and economic dis-ease rather than just focusing on treating symptoms.”

Good to grow

Currently Avri is expertly honing her many skills to serve her higher purpose. “I’m practicing as a Counselling Psychologist with a special interest in sexual wellbeing as well as gender and relationship diversity,” she says. “I have a private practice in Bryanston at the Bona Dea Centre where I see adults for individual and relationship therapy. Most of my clients are looking for an accepting and informed therapist to work through sexual identity or gender identity issues, to enhance their sexual and overall wellbeing, and to navigate consensually non-monogamous relationships. Therapy may start with sexuality but people are complex beings so it’s also about discovering and navigating the client’s whole life world for the purposes of personal growth and greater self-awareness.”

Avri also works at First Step – the intensive Outpatient Programme for the Houghton House Group of Treatment Centres. “It’s a substance use rehab centre,” she says. “I do individual therapy and group therapy with recovering addicts as well as consultations with their families.” In addition, she heads up an online platform called CtrlAltSex, which is a directory for sexual, gender and relationship minorities who want to find accepting, non-judgmental practitioners. “It’s also a way for psychologists, doctors, counsellors and coaches to find appropriate people to refer their clients to,” she says.

NYDA Welcomes Decision To Settle NSFAS Students' Debt

Mon, 03/25/2019 - 07:44

The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) has welcomed the announcement by Higher Education and Training Minister Naledi Pandor to allocate nearly a billion rands for scrapping historical debts for National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) funded students.

NYDA welcomes decision to settle NSFAS students' debt

Executive Chairperson of the NYDA, Sifiso Mtsweni, has applauded Minister Pandor and says that: “The decision is in line with meeting the demands of students across institutions of higher learning who have been raising this issue for many years, as historic debt served as the basis for exclusion of students from poor and working-class background”.

“We commend the bold decisive action by the Ministry that will see over 52 414 NSFAS funded continuing student complete their studies within projected record time.

“We are confident that this decision will enable access and success since students will be able to continue with their studies and change their lives for the better,” said Mtsweni. – SAnews.gov.za

10 Reminders to 're-motivate' yourself

Fri, 03/22/2019 - 14:20

There is a lot going on and you just can’t seem to focus. You feel tired all the time and work towards goals that you are just not seeing the results of. What should you do when you are feeling frustrated and demotivated?

There is a lot going on and you just can’t seem to focus. You feel tired all the time and work towards goals that you are just not seeing the results of. What should you do when you are feeling frustrated and demotivated?

Here are 10 reminders to re-motivate yourself, to realign your mind and heart to achieve your objectives:
  • Acknowledge that you hit a wall and remind yourself of what you have overcome thus far.
  • Identify your reasons why you started or why you wanted to achieve your set out goals in the beginning.
  • If you feel down, frustrated or just plain tired, remind yourself that this phase will also pass.
  • Sometimes all you need is to relax and regroup your thoughts to refocus.
  • Reflect on your day in the evenings and choose to see your accomplishments no matter how small. What you do daily is part of the bigger picture, your end goal.
  • Don’t try to be perfect. Rather be as efficient and productive as you can. Strive for continuous improvement.
  • Make an active decision to change what you have the power to change and accept that which you can’t change.
  • See the problem or obstacle as just another challenge and not as the end of the road and the end of your life or dreams.
  • Realise that you learn a lot from failing and that failure makes you grow and more experienced.
  • Get some outside motivation. Listen to motivational talks and podcasts, read articles about motivation and find motivation and inspiration from people around you.

It is a very simple rule of “pick up yourself and continue the journey,” because part of self-discovery and growth is only learnt en-route to your goals. No one is responsible for you except you. Start living a life where self-motivation fuels your passion to reach your dreams.

To book motivational workshops, view www.themindspa.co.za or call 010 110 0226/7 because as the title of Dr. Wayne W Dyer’s book suggests – “Live is for Living.”

Your Language, Your Human Right

Fri, 03/22/2019 - 07:25

Addressing members of the public while seamlessly switching between nine of the 11 official languages, President Cyril Ramaphosa said this year’s Human Rights Day celebration aims to highlight efforts to conserve and promote indigenous languages.

Your language, your human right

It is said that when a language dies, a way of understanding the world dies with it.

The Human Rights Day celebration took place at George Thabe Cricket Stadium in Sharpeville, Vereenging.

Human Rights Day commemorates the 1960 anti-pass march in Sharpeville, which came to a brutal end with the mass killing of 69 unarmed protesters. The march later became known as the Sharpeville massacre.
