Psycholegal Interest Group Launch

During the 2015 SIOPSA Conference, an inaugural workshop on Psycho-Legal work was facilitated by the renowned and experienced expert in this field, Ms. Barbara Donaldson. The workshop attracted a large number of practicing IOPs and was hugely overbooked pointing to the huge need for formal training in this field.


At the end of the workshop, a suggestion was made to establish a Psycholegal Interest Group to formalize training in the field as well as create a platform in which critical issues could be discussed and resolved by practicing IOPs. The suggestion was accepted by unanimous agreement by the delegates.


Further to this agreement the SIOPSA Office received an official request from the Road Accident Fund (RAF) on the formal requirements for an IOP to practice in this field. A formal response was submitted to the RAF indicating that SIOPSA was engaged in the process of establishing an Interest Group in this regard.


To this end, and back by popular demand, SIOPSA is pleased to announce that the Psycho-Legal workshop will be held again on 20 July 2016. The workshop will also serve as the launch of the Psycholegal Interest Group. You are invited to join us on this momentous occasion as we standardize practice, and position the profession as a key stakeholder in society and the South African economy at large.
