1. Mntungwa, Nosihle. The discourses that influence the application of the Ntu psychotherapy by psychologists based in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Degree: 2017, University of KwaZulu-Natal

The study made use of critical discourse analysis to explore how psychologists in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, talk about their practice of psychotherapy and Ntu psychotherapy in particular. The objectives of the study were to explore how psychologists define psychotherapy; to identify the type(s) of discourse which are used by psychologists in Pietermaritzburg regarding their preferred therapeutic techniques; to explore how discourses are used to promote or exclude particular psychotherapies.; to explore Pietermaritzburg psychologists‘ knowledge of the Ntu psychotherapy, and to explore Pietermaritzburg psychologists‘ position regarding the use or not of Ntu psychotherapy in their practice when working with black South African clients. The results of the study suggested that the definition of psychotherapy rests on the medical and scientific discourse and these continue to influence the choice of psychotherapeutic modalities by psychologists. None of the psychologists who participated in this study were aware of what Ntu Psychotherapy and culture was used as a resistive stance against the prevailing traditional psychotherapeutic modalities. Recommendations for training and methodology were also provided and discussed in this study. Advisors/Committee Members: Sekhesa, Thabo. (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Theses - Psychology.; Psychologists - Pietermaritzburg.; Ntu psychotherapy.; Psychotherapy.; Black South African clients.

2. Wyatt, Nikkiah. Black American Client Perceptions of the Treatment Process in a University Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic.

Degree: MS, Human Development, 2003, Virginia Tech

Despite negative perceptions of therapy, Black Americans are seeking therapy. I interviewed 8 Black clients about their experience of MFT. I used the Multidimensional Inventory of Black Identity (MIBI; Sellers, Rowley, Chavous, Shelton, & Smith, 1997) to assess their racial identity. Most participants thought it was strange for Blacks to seek therapy. Yet, these participants found the strength to seek therapy to protect their family and individual well-being. Participants found support from family, friends, and/or the church/religious beliefs. All attended church but few sought their pastor for therapeutic support. The participants who initially preferred a Black therapist also strongly viewed race as central to their self-identity. However, participants expressed greater concern for therapist competence, skills, and warmth than for therapist race. Yet, many discussed the benefits of having a Black therapist, which were greater comfort, ease, and openness for Black clients in therapy, as well as greater cultural familiarity for Black therapists. All of the participants reported satisfaction with their therapist and generally reported a positive experience. I also measured the experience of the first and third therapy sessions for Black and White clients, using the Session Evaluation Questionnaire (SEQ; Stiles, 2000). Black clients reported significantly less depth in the first session than White clients, suggesting a unique experience of therapy for Black clients. Also, Black clients that remained in therapy reported less smoothness in the first session than those who terminated. There were no significant findings for the third session. Research and treatment implications from these findings are discussed. Advisors/Committee Members: Stith, Sandra M. (committeechair), Rosen, Karen H. (committee member), McCollum, Eric E. (committee member), Few-Demo, April L. (committee member).
