Through the media reports, PsySSA has been made aware of the unethical practices of a psychologist in KZN (link to story). PsySSA confirms that the psychologist in question has never been a member of the society.
PsySSA condemns any such unethical practice that brings the profession into disrepute, and supports sanctions against Psychology professionals practicing in an unethical or unprofessional manner.
Any Psychology professional who practices unethically must be taken to task by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). PsySSA urges members of the public to report unethical practice in any of the disciplines under the auspices of the HPCSA to http://www.hpcsa.co.za/Complaints
