8th International Congress 
of Coaching Psychology 2018

To bring together the coaching psychology community

Swiss Society for Coaching Psychology (SSCP)

In June 2006, the Swiss Society for Coaching Psychology was founded in Berne, Switzerland (www.coaching-psychology.ch). On the basis of the English name, a uniform abbreviation for multilingual Switzerland was created.

SSCP is an affiliated association of the Federation of Swiss Psychologists (FSP,http://www.psychologie.ch/), which is an umbrella organisation for university-educated psychologists. Today, the Federation of Swiss Psychologists comprises about 6000 members. In June 2010 the specialization title “coaching psychology” and the SSCP-curriculum have been accepted by FSP. SSCP has been organizing seminars in coaching psychology since 2008 (see academy, http://www.coaching-psychology.ch). 

SSCP members are qualified and experienced practitioners. They have a university degree in psychology and have undergone advanced training in coaching. Currently, the certification procedure for the new specialization title in coaching psychology is prepared.
