EAAP’s scope of accreditation is the accreditation and preaccreditation of practices providing  services/products based on different  aspects of applied psychology in Europe  and/or internationally. Example of that can be HR, Coaching, Psychotherapy, Behavioral marketing, Behavioral economics, Pedagogy, Adult learning, Social care and other services and practices.
What are the benefits of accreditation?
Simply put, accreditation is quality assurance through external peer review. When an institution, specialized program/service, or single practitioner  is accredited, it has demonstrated that it meets standards set by  EAAP and our large list of accreditors, specialized in the different fields of applied psychology.  Every accreditation is issued for the period of 3 years. After that period the recipient must undergo a similar review to mentain accreditation.
There are three types of accreditation:
- Institutional Accreditation. Accreditors review commercial and non-commercial organizations, institutes, consulting agencies, training and development centers, etc. The accreditation comprises all activities performed by the organization.
- Programatic Accreditation of specific service or product. The object of accreditors review is specific service or product.
- Professional Accreditation. Accreditors review the educational status, professional experience, specific certifications, supervision, code of conduct and ethics of the applicant. This type of accreditation is issued for one person only (name of the applicant and type of practice) and is suitable for Psychotherapists, Coaches, Consultants, HR & recruitment specialists, Soft skill trainers, etc.

Every year we present our awards to the members of the Association who have distinguished themselves with their professional practices, have applied innovative methodologies in the field of applied psychology or have contributed to the development of EAAP.

Professor Adam Oliver is honored with the EAAP Honorary Award for 2023.

Renowned as a pioneer in behavioral public policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science Professor Oliver has made significant contributions throughout his career. Early on, he conducted groundbreaking studies on various behavioral economic phenomena, laying the foundation for the field.

In recent years, Professor Oliver has been instrumental in shaping a new realm of public policy—behavioral public policy. This innovative approach connects the insights of behavioral economics and broader behavioral science to address public policy challenges. To contribute to this emerging field, he authored a trilogy of books exploring its origins, development, and future: "The Origins of Behavioural Public Policy" (2017), "Reciprocity and the Art of Behavioural Public Policy" (2019), and "A Political Economy of Behavioural Public Policy" (2023), all published by Cambridge University Press.

With a body of work that establishes a bridge between policy making, political and social science, and modern applied psychology, Professor Oliver has left an indelible mark. Recognizing his achievements the EAAP Accreditation Committee has bestowed upon him the Honorary EAAP Award for 2023.

Let us extend our heartfelt congratulations to Professor Oliver and join in celebrating this well-deserved recognition


Ethics & professional standards

The principles of EAAP are related to the common moral framework that guides and inspires psychologists and other professionals worldwide toward the highest ethical ideals in their professional and scientific work.
We recognize that we should carry out our activities within a larger social context. We recognize that the lives and identities of human beings both individually and collectively are connected across generations, and that there is a reciprocal relationship between human beings and their social environments.  That’s why EAAP as organization is committed to placing the wellfare of society and its members above the self-interest of the discipline and its members.
