Four practitioners from the United States went to Rwanda in September of 2009 on a humanitarian trip to work with orphan survivors of the 1994 genocide who are still suffering from complex posttraumatic stress disorder. They used a variety of energy psychology techniques for trauma desensitization both in a group setting and also in individual sessions, coupled with meeting the physical needs of the students. The author and one other team member then went to Nigeria to co-teach a series of energy psychology workshops with Chief Iwowarri B. James, the first Nigerian certified by the Association for Energy Psychology (ACEP) as an Energy Health Practitioner. The author explores the interplay of spiritual belief systems and culture in Africa with psychotherapeutic interventions. Two case studies of individual healing sessions with genocide survivors are presented.
