Regular members of the Swiss Psychological Society are also members of the Federation of Swiss Psychologists. The goal of the Swiss Psychological Society is the promotion of psychological research in Switzerland, thereby contributing further knowledge to the science of psychology. To this end, the Society places high priority on a qualitatively high, scientific education for psychologists. The scientific policy is the promotion of cooperation between the various specialized areas of psychology and applied psychology as well as the interdisciplinary cooperation with organizations with similar goals. The members of the Society adhere to the "Ethic Guideline" for psychologists and thereby guarantee that the application of psychological knowledge includes respect for human values.
