Looking back at the 24th Annual Psychology Congress… Mamela Psychology

“The theme of the 2018 Congress was Mamela Psychology, which is a seSotho/seTswana word for listen. We consciously chose this term for this year’s Congress to emphasise the need for psychology to listen with humility and act with integrity. The Congress aimed to provide a platform for academics, researchers, practitioners and other experts to exchange ideas in the field of Psychology. This is a brief highlights package that captures the essence of the 2018 Congress proudly hosted by the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA)”
