About this workshop:

With his wife being a practising clinical psychologist, Christiaan has developed a particular expertise in the drafting of the necessary documents that psychologists use in their practices. The Protection of Personal Information Act, 4 of 2013, (POPIA) the Promotion of Access to Information Act, 2 of 200, (PAIA) and the recently introduced Cybercrimes Act, 19 of 2020, play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day practices of psychologists. It is now obligatory to have a PAIA manual, and certain information prescribed by POPIA must now be provided to clients. The Cybercrimes Act criminalises the disclosure of certain data messages and creates an obligation to report cybercrimes. The Health Professions Council, in addition, prescribes its own set of rules that pertains to client confidentiality. This workshop is aimed at guiding psychologists, in summary fashion, through this increasingly onerous regulatory framework.
