Clinical psychologist Audrey Katsidzira weighs in on the effects of the recent spate of violence in the country.

South Africa has seen a spate of xenophobic attacks coupled with murders of women and children in recent times.

Now that the spotlight has moved away from the issue, Eusebius McKaiser talks to clinical psychologist Audrey Katsidzira, about the psychological impact femicide and xenophobia has on victims and families' lives but also on all South Africans who have been affected by the endless reports of violence.

RELATED: How to identify types of trauma and how to heal

On a practical level, we have been hearing what has been happening around us, we have been affected directly and indirectly. Have we been conscious of how it's affecting us and our family units?

Audrey Katsidzira, Clinical psychologist

She says people should never ignore the impact of trauma.

Often times we may want to continue as nothing has happened, we need to take stock and ask, how am I feeling, on an individual level, do I have empathy?

Audrey Katsidzira, Clinical psychologist

Listen below to the full conversation and guidance on how to deal with such trauma:
