What works in South Africa? Implementing and scaling up evidence-based psychological therapies for resource limited settings.
Symposium date: 18 March 2020
In 2017 we held the first Psychotherapy Symposium in Cape Town entitled, “Which treatments work in South Africa? Evidence-based psychological therapies for resource limited settings”. The symposium brought together government stakeholders, community organizations, and researchers to present evidence on psychotherapy in resource-limited African settings, and provided a forum to share experience and knowledge. We sought to consolidate best evidence to inform policy and practice.
The second Psychotherapy Symposium will now be held on 18 March 2020 to build on the successes of the 2017 symposium. The intention is to discuss service delivery models and to develop practical implementation strategies with input from government stakeholders, policy makers, community organizations, and researchers.
The symposium will feature presentations on implementation and service delivery research of psychological therapies. An update on the progress and the findings of the research projects presented at the previous symposium will also be provided and new, innovative work will be introduced. Please see the tab ‘Call for Abstracts’ on this website for further information.
