Educational institutions to take bold measures to halt occultism practices
Halt occultism in schools – Psychotherapist
A clinical psychotherapist has called on
management of educational institutions to take
bold measures to halt occultism practices on
The Very Reverend Father Dr. Alphonse Amanor, who
is a Stress Management Consultant at the Korle-Bu
Teaching Hospital, said for them to be successful
in such quest, management of the schools needed to
be strict and boost supervision of students.
He was speaking at a day’s seminar on suicide
prevention held at the Atibie Nursing and
Midwifery Training College in the Eastern Region.
The programme was organized to sensitize students
of the college on how to manage their frustrations
and challenges, to stop any temptation of taking
their own lives.
The Very Rev Fr. Dr. Amanor highlighted the need
for school authorities and the students’ body to
be on the look out for any signs of frustration
and withdrawal and act quickly to assist such
persons through counselling.
He advised the students to manage their desires
and disappointments ‘very well’, mindful of the
fact that things would not always happen the way
He told them to care for each other – closely
monitor and report any suspicion of depression on
the part of their colleagues to the authorities
Mrs. Paulina Osabutey, the Principal, described as
deeply disturbing, the situation where young
people had been committing suicide.
That was why, it had become important to organize
such seminars to help students to properly manage
their expectations, difficulties and frustrations,
