Code of Professional Conduct
The Code of Professional Conduct, from the provisions of Section 19 of the Psychologists Act 2001 is a response to Section 3 of that Act that states the objective "to protect the health and safety of members of the public by providing mechanisms to ensure that Psychologists are fit to practice."
This Code of Professional Conduct provides principles and guidelines that should be observed by registered Psychologists in their professional practice, and that guide the interpretations relevant to Part 4 of the Psychologists Act 2001 (Complaints and Disciplinary Proceedings).
Unless required by law, or by duty of care to the client or others, Psychologists must not release information about clients unless the client specifically authorises the release, in writing.
Professional Relationships with Clients
Psychologists should safeguard a relationship of trust with their clients, students or supervisees across all stages of their professional relationship, and have regard to future personal relationships under the principle of the primary welfare of the client.
