As Senior Lecturer in the Department of Clinical Psychology (Chairperson) at the National University of Rwanda (NUR) and an Outpatient Consultant and Therapist at the NUR University Center for Mental Health (CUNISAM), I specialize in PTSD and child and adolescent traumatic grief. My doctorate studies focused on trauma and bereavement among young survivors of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.
As a Rwanda national specializing in the field of clinical psychology, I have conducted a number of research studies and have developed scientific protocols on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complicated Grief (CG) treatment. My ongoing research assesses the effectiveness of these treatment protocols in the population of traumatized survivors of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. I am developing the Memory Box method for healing bereaved and traumatized children and adolescents.
I have taught courses in psychopathology; cognitive and behavioral approaches to psychotherapy; personality theories; and grief and mourning.
