Coaching Psychology

The Interest Group in Coaching Psychology facilitates the theoretical, applied and professional development of Coaching Psychology as an emerging theoretical and applied sub-discipline of Psychology. Coaching Psychology, as an applied positive psychology, draws on and develops established psychological approaches, and can be understood as being the systematic application of behavioural science to the enhancement of life experience, work performance and wellbeing for individuals, groups and organisations who do not have clinically significant mental heath issues or abnormal levels of distress.

As a benchmark professional forum the Interest Group is theoretically inclusive, independent of external organisational influences, promotes rigorous critical thought and the development of applied coaching skills, and adheres to the highest levels of professional integrity and practice as reflected in the APS Code of Ethics and Ethical Guidelines.
