2021: HPCSA CPD Accredited for 1 CEU - The capacity of children to perform juristic acts is limited to protect them from their immaturity of judgment. The primary result of this is legal certainty- everyone (the parent, healthcare worker, judge, educator) is perfectly safe and the legal position is certain - except, if we think about it, possibly the child. In a modern democracy with a Bill of Rights which has the intent of protecting a child's best interest, legal certainty should only be found subjectively, that is, relative to the child and her capacity.

Even in doing this course, we may find that if we are aware of why we are doing it, maybe to contribute to our clients’ purpose, meaning, motivation and values, we may be more motivated to finish the course.

Acting from higher motivations makes us happier and carries more meaning and contentment. Higher motivations or “higher needs”, as Maslow would call them, include exploration, gregariousness and cooperation, power-within, and mastery. If we start to become aware of our motivations, it becomes possible to move up the scale and make a paradigm shift to higher motivations.(Zohar & Marshall, 2004.)
