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.
