Join the Masambeni Psychology internship in Cape Town that connects you with an extensive list of companies and organisations working to change lives in Cape Town. The goal of this learnership is to investigate the cause of certain behaviours and try to establish a scientific treatment to deal with any abnormality.
With its history of Apartheid, South Africa has large numbers of poverty-stricken communities and deep scars to heal. Violence, substance abuse and trauma are common in most of these communities.
