It is here!!!
The 40th SAACDHE Conference has kicked off with a great start on Monday 16 September at the lovely Royal St. Andrews Hotel in Port Alfred.
Day one was filled with hugs and greetings as members from the region had the opportunity to network, connect and laugh with each other.
After an opening word by the SAACDHE President Lynne Malan, Prof Sakhela Buhlungu, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Fort Hare opened the conference with a valuable keynote address. Attendees had the opportunity to learn from their fellow colleagues by attending a number of Paper presentations and/or a workshop grouped under the headings: Professional Practice; Mental Health / Counselling Practices; Student Learning, Career Counselling, Student Lifestyle and Counselling Practice.
This vigorous day was ended off with optional mindfulness, mediation or dance-fitness-fun sessions.
