This Code of Conduct applies to all events and activities, including online content managed by the EACLIPT. We expect this Code of Conduct to be honored by anyone who participates in the EACLIPT community formally or informally, or claims any affiliation with EACLIPT, in any EACLIPT-related activities.

To create a safe and positive environment, we expect the Code of Conduct to be followed by all our participants and association members, both in spirit, as well as, to the letter.

Diversity Statement

The European Association of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Treatment, EACLIPT, is an international association devoted to the promotion and development of empirical and theoretical research and applications for clinical psychology and psychological treatment within Europe.  We also foster the interchange of information relating to this subject between the European Association of Clinical Psychology and Psychological Treatment and similar associations throughout the world.

In EACLIPT, we strongly value diversity in our members. EACLIPT is committed to creating an unbiased environment where diversity with regards to, but not limited to: age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, political beliefs, profession, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status is welcomed, appreciated, and respected.

Specific Guidelines and Unacceptable behavior

Within EACLIPT, we strive for an open and welcoming environment, where collaboration and respect of others are essential. We expect our members and participants to be respectful of different cultural practices, attitudes and beliefs. It is important to be aware of the impact that words and actions may have on others. Please, take responsibility for your actions and mistakes, and correct the behavior onwards.

Within EACLIPT, we do not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment at any organizational level. Harassment includes, but is not limited to:

  • Derogatory language and comments that reinforce social structures of domination
  • Violence or violent threats/language directed towards another person
  • Personal attacks or unwanted comments regarding a person’s lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, drugs, and employment
  • Sexually explicit or violent material in public spaces, including talks
  • Unwelcome sexual attention
  • Inappropriate physical contact
  • Disruptive behavior during talks or other events
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior



EACLIPT expects the Code of Conduct to be followed by all participants at all events and EACLIPT-related activities. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, event organizers retain the right to take any actions to keep the event a welcoming environment for all participants. This includes warning the offender or expulsion from the conference [with no refund]. Event organizers may take action to redress anything designed to, or with the clear impact of, disrupting the event or making the environment hostile for any participants.

Reporting Guidelines

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report any issue as soon as possible to the EACLIPT Executive Board or to the organizers of the EACLIPT event. Harassment and other code of conduct violations reduce the value of our aims, as well as our events, for everyone.
