Welcome to 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.

Dear SACNA Members,

We are very pleased to be able to report to you that a milestone for South African Neuropsychology has been attained during early-July, 2020:

The Register for the category of Neuropsychology has finally been opened, and has begun to be populated with the first cohort of practitioners, via the “grandpersoning” process.

In addition, the first set of applicants (15 in total) have recently taken the (post-internship) National Board Examinations for Neuropsychology, at the end of June.

Applications for registration via the grandpersoning process will continue to be evaluated until approximately the end of 2021, and the relevant forms and required documentation may be obtained through the offices of the Professional Board.

We would like to express our thanks to Prof Basil Pillay who presided over the Professional Board for Psychology during this historic period. 

We also express our gratitude to the members of the Neuropsychology Review Panel of the Professional Board, which includes our own representative, Menachem Mazabow (twice-former President of the South African Clinical Neuropsychological Association).

SACNA will continue to provide a platform for further education and training in Neuropsychology, and also for networking and professional interaction, through our CPD activities and Conferences, and through our Full Membership credentialling process.
