On this episode I chat with Wahbie about his latest book Nation On The Couch, this is a fascinating interview as we discuss the psychology of South Africa.
Wahbie Long, PhD, is a senior lecturer and clinical psychologist in the Department of Psychology at UCT. He is a Mandela Mellon Fellow of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University, a member of the American Psychological Associations Task Force on Indigenous Psychology, and the 2016 recipient of the Early Career Award of the Society for the History of Psychology (Division 26 of the APA). Wahbies general research interests include history, theory and indigenization of psychology. His current work focuses on the field of African psychology, in which he attempts to replace cultural questions with an analysis of the interpersonal, institutional and structural violence that pervades life in South Africa.
