dc.description.abstractBeing a Black, African language-speaking trainee clinical psychologist and fluent in different languages can have both its advantages and challenges. Challenges include, among others, working in one's own mother tongue after having been trained in other languages; ethnic and/or cultural differences from trainers and clients; and the burden of what may at times be a misperception that there are similarities between the client and clinician who apparently come from the same background. There are also other difficulties that come with working in a multi-cultural society. This study examines how four Black clinicians (two interns and two qualified psychologists) in the Western Cape, trained in English, deal or dealt with some of the challenges posed by working with Black, African language-speaking patients and/or clients. Results are based on semi-structured interviews with these clinicians about their experiences mainly with Black clients, and about their experiences of training.en_ZA
