BPS Professional Practice Guidelines (Second Edition)

30 January 2017

The attached document was produced by a working group drawn from a wide range of Divisions and Special Groups in the Society, and presents a series of shared guidelines for practice for applied psychologists.

The aim of this document is

  • to define good psychological practice for all psychologists;
  • to strengthen the identity of psychologists;
  • to benefit the public;
  • to benefit members;
  • to provide guidance on legal and regulatory issues.

And the guidelines contained within it are designed to be consistent with the BPS Code of Ethics and Conduct.


Please note: the third edition of the Professional Practice Guidelines, intended to update and replace the above document, is currently awaiting approval.
