Dr. Gladys Mwiti, from Nairobi, Kenya, is the Founder and CEO of Oasis Africa—a pan-African professional counseling and behavioral health care organization. Gladys is a global authority on trauma counseling, work that has put her on the front lines of tragedies such as the Rwandan genocide and the Westgate mall attack. In her two-part conversation with Chris she talks about both the resiliency and the struggles of the African church, the context in which she launched her career as a clinical psychologist, some Christian misconceptions about depression, and how she’s teaching others to help people find comfort and healing in the midst of emotional and spiritual trauma.
