Psychologists should:

  • Monitor their own personal and professional lifestyle in order to remain alert to signs of impairment..
  • Seek professional consultation or assistance when they become aware of health-related or other personal problems that may impair their own professional competence.
  • Refrain from practice when their professional competence is seriously impaired.
  • Encourage colleagues whose health-related or other personal problems may reflect impairment to seek professional consultation or assistance, and consider informing other potential sources of intervention, including the Society, when such colleagues appear unable to recognise that a problem exists. Psychologists must inform potential sources of intervention where necessary for the protection of the public.


NB The above standards are based on the Code of Ethics and Conduct published by BPSin 2006.
