What are you leaving behind? Clinical psychologist Khosi Jiyane on family legacy
It's important for families and individuals to create lasting legacies.
Legacies are the set of beliefs, values, attitudes, and even artefacts, that are passed down from generation to generation
A family legacy plays an integral role in shaping a person's identity and vision, explains clinical psychologist Khosi Jiyane.
