The most important issue confronting psychologists in South
Africa today is to contribute to changing the lives of boys
and men away from harmful constructions of masculinities
implicated in different forms of violence and social injustice.
The South African School Psychologists' Association (SASPA) was proud to host their first annual conference. Held at St Vincent School for the Deaf, during the month of International Deaf Awareness. The conference carried substantial significance and demonstrated SASPA's support for this often neglected population.
The Forum of African Psychology (FAP), in partnership with the Department of Psychology at the
University of Limpopo (Turfloop Campus), is proud to host the 1st International Congress of the
Forum of African Psychology (FAP2014). This historic congress is sure to be a memorable
scientific event that will take place in the rich tourist and cultural environment of
Polokwane in Limpopo Province, South Africa. The city of Polokwane is about 230 km from
Mapungubwe National Park and World Heritage and about 275 from the Kruger National Park.
The conference will be held at the University of Limpopo (Turfloop Campus).
Under the theme "From Psychology in Africa to African Psychology", the Congress will bring together
leading Afrocentric scholars, prominent academics, professional psychologists and traditional healers
under one roof to critically debate important issues related to African-centered psychology and
indigenous knowledge systems.
