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.
