Upcoming Events

South Africa is excited to be hosting the 2017 INS Mid-Year Congress during INS’ 50th Anniversary year. The Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) and the South African Clinical Neuropsychological Association (SACNA) look forward to welcoming you to this historic 50th Anniversary celebration that will take place from 5 to 8 July 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa. Organised around the theme Celebrating 50 Years, the congress will provided an opportunity to reflect on scientific developments during the past 50 years, and present new frontiers of neuropsychological science and their application for improving the human condition.

PAPU’s advent arose directly from the successful 30th International Congress of Psychology (ICP 2012), held for the first time on African soil in Cape Town in July 2012, where the the leadership of African psychology announced the Cape Town Declaration. Consultations were held in various parts of the African continent, resulting in unanimous support for the formation of PAPU, which caters for national, category, university, individual, student and elder membership.
