A court victory for JASA and ReLPAG as the Cape High Court declares regulations limiting psychologists invalid.

The Cape High Court made an order on the 14th November 2016 declaring the psychologists’ Scopes of Practice regulations issued by the Minister of Health in 2011, invalid. JASA (the Justice Alliance of South Africa) and ReLPAG (Recognition of Life Long Learning in Psychology Action Group) had challenged the validity of the regulations. The Board of Healthcare Funders, the fifth respondent, has agreed to abide by the outcome of the case, and consequently its members and the other medical aids, many of whom refused to pay Psychologists purportedly working outside the Scope of Practice, will need to resume making payments.

The IGCCP (under the auspices of SIOPSA) is working closely with its international peers in order to professionalise the coaching industry, as professional bodies have an important and strategic role to play in this process. Both the International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS) have already embarked on a process to provide their members with recognition of their coaching-specific expertise. In this regard, having already published a Code of Practice for Registered Psychology Practitioners in Coaching as a first step, the IGCCPSA will now be launching South Africa’s List of Coaching Practitioners (LoCP).

SIOPSA introduces all of their Interest Groups

According to Nadene Venter, SIOPSA COO, “Just as our members are the lifeblood of the Society, the SIOPSA interest groups are the main arteries ensuring that the whole body is well looked after from both an intellectual and practical, experiential viewpoint. It is in the interest groups, where thought leadership is the order of the day, which members can really drill down into a particular field and engage in a meaningful way while remaining at the forefront of trends and new developments.”

About dynamite in small packages - Introducing SIOPSA President 2016/17, Ms Manoko Ratala

It might come as a surprise that the soft-spoken, well-presented SIOPSA President, Manoko Ratala, grew up as a bit of a tomboy, counting falling from trees (and roofs!) as part of her risky repertoire. These daredevil pursuits – while tempered with the passage of time – will probably stand SIOPSA in good stead as the Society gears up to reach its ambitious goals.

The SIOPSA foundation and Partners for Possibility contributes to education in a meaningful way

South Africa’s education system leaves a lot to be desired. The past 15 years have seen the education system change three times in an effort to produce literate learners who can contribute to the economy of South Africa in a meaningful way. The National Development Plan has focused heavily on transforming South Africa into a knowledge-based economy. Government has invested billions of Rands into the education. Despite these efforts, a whole generation of learners does not possess the basic skills required to be employable. More than 50% of children drop out of school before Grade 12 and it is estimated (by officials of the Department of Education) that more than 60% of Grade 8s can’t read at grade level.
