Dear PsySSA Member,
On behalf of the PsySSA Executive and Office, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to 2018. We trust that you are well-rested, invigorated and ready to embrace the new year with PsySSA.
With your partnership and support this year, PsySSA will place an even greater emphasis on tackling the mental health issues that confront our communities. The Society aims to play an active role in addressing the numerous social ills that plague the South African population. Further commitment will also be directed towards discussions regarding the transformation and decolonisation of psychology in South Africa.
In line with PsySSA’s commitment to transforming and uniting the profession, the Society will host the 24th Annual Psychology Congress from the 11-14 September 2018 at Emperor’s Palace, Johannesburg. The conference theme ‘Mamela Psychology,’ promises a platform to deepen discussions on these matters.
We look forward to collaboratively working towards the transformation and development of a South African Psychology that serves the needs and interests of all South Africa´s people.
In 2018, let us practice listening with humility, acting with integrity.
On behalf of the PsySSA Executive and Office
