Ethics and Professional Practice Guidelines

UKATA’s guidance on ethical and professional practice is contained in two documents.

The UKATA code of ethics and professional practice and the UKATA procedures for handling ethical complaints.

The Code is intended to guide and inform both organisations and individual members of UKATA in the ethical practice of Transactional Analysis. The Code is relevant to all members of UKATA who use Transactional Analysis as a model for understanding and change with individuals, couples, groups or organisations and extends to the roles of supervisor and trainer. The Code articulates the ethical principles needed to underlie ethical behaviour, and highlights the practitioner’s responsibilities towards self and others in exercising their practice. IN terms of practicing ethically the Code should be adhered to along with other policy and advice for instance on dual reltionships and advertising.

In case of a violation of ethical practice, guidance can be found in the Code and in the Complaint Procedure below.

UKATA Code of Ethics & Professional Practice. The code of ethics which all UKATA members abide by.
