Ethics Committee

The committee has formed the ethics for the Association of Bodynamic Psychology (ABP). The ethics are a body of rules, procedures, and guidelines that govern relationships with clients, students, colleagues, the ABP, the public, and other professions. Ethics help us to be aware of our responsibilities and guide our behavior.

In Bodynamic we recognize and support the human rights and the dignity of human beings. We are aware that therapeutic relationships are by their nature asymmetrical. We are carrying the responsibility for that in our therapy, public presentation, supervision, and teaching.
In our professional relationships, we express this with consideration for the experience of others, and with respect and tolerance for diversity of perspective. This includes our awareness of our professional competencies, state laws, our need for continuing education and supervision. Our principles are meant to provide clarity about the basic contours of ethical behavior but do not serve as an exhaustive or comprehensive discussion of the ethical obligations of Association members.

If you have any questions about ethical behavior or want to report someone who has not followed the ethics of APB. Please send a mail to
