Accreditation of Teaching Institutions and Psychology Practicum Sites
Institutions teaching psychology and their psychology curricula as well as Practicum/Internship and Continuing Education sites for Clinical and Counseling Psychologists will also need Accreditation by the Kenya Psychological Association. This will ensure training and practice content, quality, and professional discipline.
KPsyA stands for quality and accountability in the practice of Psychology in Kenya. Just like medical practice will not sanction someone to do a six-month course in medicine and then open a surgery, so KPsyA lays the same expectations as the rest of the world in the practice of serving the Kenyan population in the area of psychological mental health.
People will give your profession the value that you yourself give it. Similarly, your professional association validates you and your profession.
