dc.description.abstractEnglish: South African psychologists agree that psychology should become more relevant, although there are divergent opinions on how it should be attained. In this article a general view has been given of the debate on relevance in psychology in South Africa. It would appear that the psychology profession should be established as an important role player in the socio-political context of the country in order to make a contribution towards a peaceful and democratic society. To be able to render more efficient cross-cultural services, the universal principles of psychology should be adhered to. Furthermore cultural diversity should be acknowledged, and Afrocentric/indigenous principles should be accommodated in psychology. Attention should be gi,ven to the shortage of psychologi,sts from non-Western population groups, while co-operation with traditional healers should also be promoted. It has also been argued that psychological services should be extended to the broad population, and that such services should be made more accessible and should be marketed better. Furthermore some implications of the debate on relevance in the training of psychologists have been discussed.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Suid-Afrikaanse sielkundiges is dit eens dat die sielkunde meer relevant moet word, hoewel daar uiteenlopende menings bestaan oor die wyse waarop dit moet geskied. In hierdie artikel word 'n oorsig gebied oor die debat oor relevansie in die sielkunde in Suid-Afrika. Dit blyk dat die sielkundeprofessie as belangrike rolspeler in die sosio-politieke konteks van die land gevestig moet word ten einde 'n bydrae tot 'n vreedsame en demokratiese samelewing te lewer. Om doeltreffender kruiskulturele dienste te kan lewer, moet die universele beginsels van die sielkunde behou word. Verder moet kulturele diversiteit erken word en Afrosentriese/inheemse beginsels in die sielkunde geakkommodeer word. Aandag behoort geskenk te word aan die tekort aan sielkundiges uit nie-Westerse bevolkingsgroepe, terwyl samewerking met tradisionele genesers ook bevorder moet word. Daar word ook aangevoer dat sielkundige dienste na die bree bevolking uitgebrei moet word, en dat sulke dienste toegankliker gemaak en beter bemark moet word. Voorts word enkele implikasies van die debat oor relevansie vir die opleiding van sielkundiges belig.en_ZA
