Buuma M. Maisha, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the School of Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Spirituality. His main research interests include sociocultural norms (social taboos); trauma: sexual violence and culture-driven interpersonal violence; self-image and image of other; and contextualization of psychotherapy in Sub-Saharan Africa. Based on his previous research, Dr. Maisha has proposed a contextualized therapeutic model for individuals and communities who suffered individual or “community rape” . The context-based model focuses on belief systems, particularly sexual taboos, relational attachment and social interactions for survivors and their families/communities.
