  • Domestic violence : ethical challenges to the professionalism of religious and faith leaders for healing survivors : a psychological analysis

    Maduforo, Ruth Dymphna (, 2020)
    Domestic Violence is a scourge and reality in many societies around the world, but the topic is not given adequate consideration in terms of the required long-term help and information that victims, offenders and caregivers need. The focus on Domestic Violence brings an area of community and clinical psychology, mental health and overall well-being of citizens into view. The author explores the leadership roles of Churches, pastors and counsellors within religious and church institutions in providing long-term and sustainable healing to the affected and discovers gaps in their approaches. This book is an invitation for all stakeholders involved in family welfare and counselling of vulnerable persons, especially religious leaders and churches, to recognise the positive role of psychological therapy for healing the victims of domestic violence.

  • Opportunités et défis de la réconciliation à l’Est de la République Démocratique du Congo : Cas des conflits liés à la transhumance en territoires de Fizi et d’Uvira (Sud-Kivu)

    Mashanda, Murhega; Kitoka, Moke (, 2019)
    Cette recherche originale met en lumière des conditions de possibilité d'une expérience des réconciliations qui s'enracine dans un processus participatif qui a une vocation éthique globale, dans une robuste déconstruction de tout culture de violence en faveur d'une culture de dialogue. Prenant appui sur l'étude de cas de mécanismes efficaces et durables de gestion des conflits liés à la transhumance dans l'Est du RD Congo, on trouvera dans cet ouvrage une synthèse des expériences d'un ensemble d'ONG congolais, présentant à la fois: a) le caractère domptable des conflits liés à la transhumance par des approches endogènes de gestion des conflits, b) la mise en exergue de la vulnérabilité des initiatives locales de paix, tant que l'État ne les intègre pas dans la mise en place des politiques nationales et locales.
