Abstract [en]

Introduction: The term sport psychology refers to psychological aspects of sport, physical recreation, physical education, exercise, health, and related physical activities. The European Sport Psychology Federation (FEPSAC) works for the development of the field of sport psychology and exercise from a European and global perspective. Due to Sport Psychology professionals’ specialised knowledge and the hypothetical potential for harm, the ethical principles are guidelines for FEPSAC professionals to act responsibly and ethically in the provision of professional services. These principles are intended to ensure the dignity and welfare of all groups, organisations and individuals with whom FEPSAC professionals may interact with and provide professional services to. Altogether seven ethical principles is stated that guides FEPSAC research and applied sport psychology. These are: a) Professional and Social Responsibility, b) Competence, c) Consent, d) Confidentiality, e) Integrity, f) Personal Conduct, g) Research. Recommendations: a) FEPSAC members are responsible for safeguarding the public and the FEPSAC from members who are deficient in ethical conduct. They should uphold professional and social standards of conduct and accept appropriate responsibility for their behaviour. b) FEPSAC members should strive to maintain the highest standards of competence in their work. c) No FEPSAC members should undertake any work without first having the informed consent of all participating clients. This is done primarily, through the client signing a document setting detailing all information relevant to the proposed investigation, intervention, treatments or test. d) FEPSAC members should preserve the confidentiality of the information acquired in their work which should not be developed without prior written consent of a client. Clients should be informed that they have a right to a copy of such information relating to them if so requested. f) FEPSAC members should promote integrity in research, teaching, and practice of sport psychology. g) FEPSAC members shall conduct themselves in a manner beneficial to the well-being of their clients and in a way that brings credit to the field of sport psychology. h) FEPSAC members should comply with codes, statements, guidelines and other directives developed. Moreover, they should accurately report the data they have gathered and the results of their research, and state clearly if any data on which the publication is based have been published previously.
