Symposium 7.Teaching Psychology in South Africa
Psychology has been taught at South African universities for over seventy years. Masters level professional psychology training programs began to develop in the seventies and psychology as a profession has received statutory recognition for over three decades, and is now situated within a national skills quality assurance framework.
The drivers that have contributed to the development of South African psychology as a science and profession will be explored, against the backdrop of critical historical periods in South Africa’s colourful and controversial history. The symposium will address the factors contributing to students’ attendance at undergraduate psychology lectures, the role of Telehealth in postgraduate training of health care professionals and the development of neuropsychology training.‘
