Psychology twenty years after democracy

It has been twenty years since the beginning of democratic rule in South Africa, and psychology as a discipline and a profession is doing extremely well. The 20th Annual South African Psychology Congress, to be hosted in Durban in September 2014, celebrates not only two decades of democracy but also twenty years since the launching of the Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA). PsySSA is the nationally representative professional body for psychology. It has been twenty years since South Africa has had a united, non-racial organisation for psychologists.
