ONLINE MODULE 1: DISSOCIATIVE IDENTITY DISORDER

​In past decades and still, in contemporary society, the notion and validity of the phenomenon of multiple personalities, or dissociative identities, within a single individual, have resulted in much debate and discord among mental health care professionals. Even with diverging opinions on the subject, the current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders bears proof of the genuine nature of what is now termed Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). In this paper, the existence of DID per se is not questioned, but rather, whether this disorder can be reliably identified and validly categorised. There are four factors that will be assessed: childhood trauma, prevalence ratings, media influences, and psycho-physiological perspectives.

ONLINE MODULE 2: RACIAL EQUITY & MASTER'S SELECTION

​In South Africa racial diversity issues remains controversial. Within the field of professional clinical psychology equity policies as applied to selection in training programmes in South African scholarly institutions are rife with similar controversy. Much literature has been dedicated to enhancing racial diversity within psychology training with the perspectives of black students; however, the views of white students are minimally documented. Though the number of white professional clinical psychology trainees is limited, four students participated in this significantly revealing semi-structured qualitative study. The participants were assured of confidentiality and anonymity, and informed consent was obtained. Four major themes arose from the participants’ responses: ambiguity versus transparency; internal shame versus external blame; race versus socio-economic status and language; and relevancy versus irrelevancy.

ONLINE ​MODULE 3: CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE

​Childhood sexual abuse or assault of both males and females are greatly under-reported in South Africa, which highlights similar international trends in most countries. There are few resources for sexually abused or exploited women in South Africa, and even fewer for men. Two such organisations are MatrixMen South Africa, founded by Mr. Martin Pelders, and the South African Male Survivors Of Sexual Abuse (SAMSOSA), founded by Mr. Rees Mann.

ONLINE MODULE 4: ECOPSYCHOLOGY

​Theodore Roszak’s conception of ecopsychology (including his eight basic principles) recognises the importance of an individual’s ecosystem or environment on interpersonal connections and intra-psychic processes. Ecopsychology also acknowledges the commonplace role of bipolarity, contrast, and conflict in nature, between individuals or groups, and within an individual. This paper, thus, begins by arguing that bipolarity, contrast, and conflict, are consistent phenomena for natural entities, such as between and within non-human-animals, and between and within human-animals. Nonetheless, the conflict within human-animals, or individuals, is the primary focus of this paper. This conflict within an individual, expressed in terms of ecopsychology, is between one’s unconscious and conscious mind. This paper continues, arguing that Carl Jung’s transcendent function model, which is introduced as a third position, retaining aspects of both sides of the unconscious and conscious, may be used to resolve inner (ecological) unconscious conflicts. The transcendent function is explored in terms of drawings, dreams and, more specifically, wilderness therapy, a phylum of ecotherapy.

ONLINE MODULE 5: ECHO VERSUS CLASSIC NARCISSISM

​Our contemporary reading is based on a variant of Ovid’s tale of Narcissus and Echo. In this version, a beautiful youth, Narcissus, burns with love for the image of his own self that he sees reflected in the shimmer of a lake’s surface. Echo, a timid and kind water nymph, becomes almost equally enamoured with Narcissus. Narcissus is only able to resist the fascination of his own image when he is admired by Echo. Narcissus’s responses to Echo’s advances, although few and far between, elates her, and encourages her to further engage with him. Echo feeds and grooms Narcissus, both physically and emotionally. Narcissus quickly grows bored with, and loses appreciation for, Echo’s yearnings and attempts to gratify him. His rejection results in her increasing her efforts to satisfy his physical and emotional needs. Echo’s interests, goals, aspirations, and meanings eventually become extinct over time. Narcissus, who has himself become increasingly and heavily reliant on Echo for his well-being, eventually withers away, as Echo, despite her best efforts, cannot meet both his (and her) increasingly extensive and intensive needs. Echo, then, feels distraught, fragile and purposeless. She crawls into a nearby cave where she, too, ceases to exist. All that remains of her is the reverberation of another’s voice and words spoken in caves, which denote her final resting place, that is, an echo.

ONLINE MODULE 6: CUTTING IN ADOLESCENCE

This module is not meant to invoke fear (though it may), but rather, to inform the reader as to a trend starting in early adolescence that has existed in the dark for decades. There are unlimited ways in which one can inflict harm on oneself, including anorexia, or starving / restricting food intake; bulimia, or purging / vomiting up food soon after consumption; and so on. Another form of self-harm known as cutting is discussed, falling within the realm of self-mutilation. This article may be difficult to read, however, caregivers and practitioners who interact with teenagers need to be aware of the practice and the circumstances in which cutting occurs.
