Division of Clinical Psychology

The Division of Clinical Psychology (DCP) exists to promote the professional interests of Clinical Psychologists across the UK.

The DCP works closely with a number of organisations including the NHS, the government, and multiple professional bodies and groups in the voluntary sector, to promote and develop clinical psychology as a body of knowledge and skills.

Our mission is to support the development of Clinical Psychology, both as a profession and as a body of knowledge, by working collaboratively with others to promote the unique and important contributions of Clinical Psychology that cannot be replicated by other approaches.

Our key ethical principles are based on the ‘Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists’ and the principles of the Society's Code of Ethics and Conduct:

  • Principle 1: Respect for the Dignity of Persons and Peoples
  • Principle 2: Competent Caring for the Well-Being of Persons and Peoples
  • Principle 3: Integrity
  • Principle 4: Professional and Scientific Responsibilities to Society

This will include an emphasis upon being:

  • Accountable
  • Evidence based
  • Inclusive
  • Open, honest and transparent
