This workshop will focus on the mental health impact of child abuse and exploitation linked to cultural and religious practices amongst Black African children and repairing the damage of abuse on mental health. Key issues addressed by AFRUCA Mental Health service are Female Genital Mutilation, the Branding of Children as Witches and child trafficking. We will explore the use of juju and oath rituals to control victims of Trafficking and Exploitation.
