Africanising Psychology: Beyond nativisim and indigenous
Sipho Dlamini was born in Alexandra Township and moved to a small town called Estcourt in Kwa-Zulu Natal where he lived for the better part of a decade. He moved back to his birth town to complete his high school in 2006. Sipho studied his Bachelor of Arts and Honours degree in Psychology at the University of South Africa, after which he worked for a company which specialises in Autism Spectrum Disorders, for two years. In 2014, he was accepted to pursue his Masters in Counselling Psychology at Rhodes University, where he is completing his qualification as a registered intern psychologist.
Sipho’s passions are primarily in higher education studies and has taken a keen interest in Africanisation studies within this field. As Psychology and Africanisation are so close to his heart, he is finding ways to merge the two together and contributing to the body of knowledge that is emerging in South Africa and the African diaspora.
