Terms of reference:
The committee shall
The role of the committee is an advisory one. It is not a disciplinary body and is not intended to replace the disciplinary procedures of the professional bodies to which members belong. Nor will the ISST develop its own code of ethics since it recognizes that members are subject to the ethical codes of the professional bodies to which they belong. However, where there are conflicts related to differences in ethical codes across countries or organizations, this committee may develop a position paper or discussion document that summarized the issues and, where appropriate, defines a perspective from within the schema therapy model.
In discharging these responsibilities, the committee may appoint small subcommittees or workgroups on a temporary basis for the duration of the task at hand.
These terms of reference were approved by the Executive Board at its meeting on 2nd October 2017.
