The Event

Applying state-of-the-art psychological science to improve the learning and developmental processes for all students, is at the cornerstone of a mental health practitioner’s role within an educational context. However, this mandate is superimposed by ethical dilemmas and a changing world of technological and theoretical advances.  It therefore becomes imperative for all registered counsellors and psychologists working within schools, to be up-to-date with advances within the field of school psychology.

As a step forward towards the goal of continuous professional development, SAHETI Psychology Department invites you to our 2018 symposium, specifically aimed at providing you with contemporary developments in the fields.

With esteemed presenters, we have an exciting offering at this years symposium, including:
