Building on the success of the first-ever continental psychology congress, PAPU2017, the 24th Annual Psychology Congress (MAMELA2018) is proudly hosted by the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) at Emperors Palace in Johannesburg. The congress boasts a scientific programme that will reflect global cutting-edge and critical trends, including epistemological, theoretical and applied developments whilst also addressing the need for a relevant, decolonised South African Psychology.

The theme of the congress is Mamela Psychology.  ‘Mamela’ is a Sesotho word meaning “listen”. This indigenous term wonderfully captures the essence  of the discipline. The congress will focus on psychology’s role…to listen with humility and act with  integrity.

6 Days until Abstract Submission closes

The Congress Committee welcomes presentations that focus on the congress theme and general areas of relevance to psychology. Submissions of scholarly and practice-oriented presentations, research posters and symposia are invited. The congress will showcase how the discipline can listen with humility and act with integrity through a wide range of voices.
