Abstract and Keywords

One characteristic of psychological ethics in Europe is that the continent has very diverse historical, cultural, and professional traditions. This makes the development of a good, visible structure with transparency in matters concerning ethics—i.e., codes of conduct, ethics committees, and sanctioning procedures—rather a challenge. In this chapter we will look, with the structure of the Meta-Code of the EFPA as a template, at the variety of ethical codes throughout the European continent—depending on the development of the profession of psychologists, the different kinds of psychological organizations and regulation of psychologists—and comment on communalities, differences, or special characteristics of the ethical codes of a majority of EFPA member associations.

Keywords: Europe, EFPA, association, legal, ethical code, regulation, sanction, consumer protection
