History teaches us that unity is strength, and cautions us to submerge and overcome our differences in the quest for common goals, to strive, with all our combined strength, for the path to true African brotherhood and unity.

Congress Initiative – Diversity in Practice
Many of us have ideas and notions regarding the meaning of diversity. Diversity in terms of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and religious beliefs are a few categories that may come to mind. As psychologists, working in multicultural and cross-cultural contexts presents us with many challenges as well as successes. With this in mind, PsySSA has included an innovative event titled Diversity in Practice to showcase our meanings of diversity in a creative and engaging way. The aim of the event is to explore and to demonstrate the multiple meanings, experiences and the complexities of working with diverse people and in diverse context. Presentations will include posters, slideshows, and displays. Some of the topics include Practice in Trans Context, Life Stories, Narrative Therapy, Robben Island Diversity Experience (RIDE) and Ecopsychology. We hope this event will encourage lively discussions and a space to share our diverse ways of practice.
