The Unisa Centre for Applied Psychology (UCAP) offers unique services in which the discipline of Psychology is applied to real life contexts and packaged in ways that make these services highly relevant to a South Africa in transition. Our mission is to promote the application of psychological knowledge in the solution of human problems and in the development of human potential.
While the aim of the Centre is achieved in a variety of ways, we primarily excel in: the development and presentation of short learning programmes in accordance with the expressed needs of clients, such as mental health workers, organisations, and communities; and organising conferences, seminars, and skills training workshops on themes and topics relevant to the needs of the Centre's clients.
Other activities include: Rendering preventative and curative services to the community at both individual and group levels; Carrying out relevant research and development projects (click here for more information); and disseminating information by means of publications.
To promote the application of knowledge in the solution of human problems and in the development of human potential.
