I am the founding and current president of the

Pharmacology Association for South African Clinical Psychologists [PASACP]

In my personal capacity, and as President of the PASACP, I appeal to South African Psychologists (All categories), to become members of the American Psychology Association (APA) so that they will become eligible to vote for the next APA president-elect in September 2022 to take office in 2023.

  • The PASACP endorses Dr. Beth Rom-Rymer as President-Elect of the APA.
  • We endorse Dr. Rom Rymer’s candidacy because she is an untiring and effective campaigner for the prescriptive authority for psychologists across the globe.
  • We set up the PASACP to campaign for South African psychologists to receive high-level training in pharmacology. Constitution of the Pharmacology Association
  • Please visit pasacp.co.za to read and listen to a video I made in 2019 on the pros and cons of prescriptive authority for psychologists.
