SACNA




Welcome to SACNA!

SACNA is a peer-credentialed association of psychologists in South Africa, who aim to promote and stimulate interest in the field of neuropsychology, while maintaining standards in neuropsychological practice. This is achieved by ensuring that its full members have demonstrated knowledge and competence in the field, by way of examination and peer review.

In addition, SACNA's intention is to promote the professional development of clinical neuropsychology in South Africa,

  • through encouraging participation in training and CPD activities,
  • through maintaining regular meetings at regional levels attended by psychologists and related professionals,
  • through hosting a national bi-annual conference, and
  • through liaising and consulting with the HPCSA Professional Board for Psychology, and other bodies pertinent to the practice of neuropsychology in South Africa.

PsySSA will be hosting its historic 30th Anniversary Congress, in conjunction with the 10th anniversary conference of the Pan African Psychology Union (PAPU) from 8 – 11 October, at Emperors Palace Conference Centre in Johannesburg. This collaborative event promises to be a pinnacle of academic and professional discourse, featuring a confluence of scholars, academics, practitioners, and students from around the globe. It will reflect on the strides we've made, addressing current challenges, and envisioning the future of psychology within the context of local and global developments. It is an opportunity to explore how we can shape a future where psychology continues to contribute profoundly to the wellbeing of individuals and communities on the African continent and globally.
