is a community service initiative of the Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Stellenbosch University.
Welgevallen Community Psychology Clinic functions with four primary goals in mind:
1. To provide a professional setting and meaningful practical learning opportunities for students who are undergoing training in clinical and counselling psychology at Stellenbosch University.
2. To provide accessible, effective and context-appropriate out-patient psychological services to families and individuals of all ages in the broader Stellenbosch community, who would not otherwise have access to psychological care.
3. To undertake research and contribute to the body of knowledge on effective psychological interventions within the South African context.
4. To work collaboratively with community members, government agencies and community based organisations to provide effective psychological interventions that address psycho-social problems in the broader Stellenbosch area.
Welgevallen Community Psychology Clinic values the differences and similarities among people and adheres to the principles of diversity, both in terms of the composition of the staff and students who work in the clinic, and in terms of the individuals and communities that are served.
We are working towards being able to provide therapeutic services in Afrikaans, English and isiXhosa.
