COPC (Spain)

COPC, Catalunya, Spain

The COPC (Col·legi Oficial de Psicologia de Catalunya) is the Official Psychology Society of Catalonia, an integral member of the General Psychology Council of Spain.

COPC’s Coaching Psychology Section, with more than 500 members who are organized by working groups, is dedicated to the professionalism and development of coaching psychology. This section  was established in 2012, though its beginnings date to 2008, when a working group from the Work and Organisational Psychology Section explored the relationship between coaching and psychology, with a spirit of integration.

The COPC sponsored the 1st International Congress of Coaching Psychology-Spain in Barcelona on 11th and 12th October 2011, and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP). This MoU was updated in May 2019, so as to include a specific ítem on the ISCP’s recognition of the accreditation system of the COPC.This means that the accreditation system for coaching psychologists of ISCP and the COPC are equivalent.

Our vision of the future is to continue advancing and contributing to the international Coaching Psychology movement in regards to research, training, supervision, accreditation and good practice.
