Consulting Psychology in South Africa

Consulting psychology is a specialised area of psychology with the aim of applying and extending psychologists’ expert knowledge through the process of consultation to problems involving human behaviour. The practice of consulting psychology is guided by the science of psychology in evaluating the effectiveness of interventions and assessment methodologies. Consulting psychologists should have in-depth knowledge of the main theoretical models in psychology and of their particular methodologies and applications as they apply to individual, group and organisational consulting domains. The Department of Industrial and Organisational Psychology and the Department of Psychology at Unisa offer a specialised PhD degree in Consulting Psychology. For more information on this PhD degree, please contact Mabel Campher at 012 429 8003 or

8 CPD POINTS awarded for the two-day conference

Presenters and attendees of all CPD activities should please note that the attainment of continuing education units (CEUs) does not license any professional to practice outside their official scope of practice. CEUs are intended to broaden the knowledge of professionals but do not constitute professional training.
