Some selected EuroPsy publications


  • In the period from 2015 to 2016, within the framework of the Norwegian financial mechanism 2009-2014, and national funds of the Republic of Slovenia, an opportunity has been obtained with the project “Supervised Practice of Psychologists: Development of a Training Programme of Mentors and a Model of the Supervised Practice – SUPER PSIHOLOG” to establish conditions for young psychologists to start their professional careers by participating in supervised practice. 

This book is intended for and dedicated to all psychologists, in particular novice psychologists, supervisors, and supervisors-of-supervisors. It clarifies why mentoring and supervision are important, and demonstrates how to implement supervised practice, with the creators of the supervised practice system in Slovenia sharing the experiences acquired during the implementation of the project. The aim of the book is thus to present the development of supervised practice in Slovenia.

EuroPsy: Standards and Quality in Education for Professional Psychologists

  • The only comprehensive professional handbook on EuroPsy, the European standard and benchmark for education and training in psychology. This book is mandatory reading for anyone involved with accreditation, education, quality assurance, and assessment of standards in psychology.

EuroPsy has been accepted and adopted as the European standard for education and training in psychology by EFPA.

This book, written by its initiator and leading members of the working groups that set EuroPsy up, is the only comprehensive text available about this European benchmark. It first reviews the development of EuroPsy in the historical context of psychology as science and profession and policies for higher education set by international bodies, and in particular the European Union. This handbook then goes on to address the curricula of university courses and programmes following from the Bologna Agreement, the flexibility allowed to reflect diversity in Europe, licencing and accreditation, and benchmarking, as well as other prerequisites for meeting the EuroPsy standards. These include the use of a competence model to assure professional standards, supervision, continued professional development, supervision, and ethics. Finally, the authors examine the current and future role of EuroPsy in psychology in Europe, including practical examples of how EuroPsy has been applied in practice

A Model of the Supervised Practice of Psychologists

  • EuroPsy - the European Certificate in Psychology represents an educational framework and minimum standards for the training of psychologists across EU. Within this framework, a year of supervised practice is required for entry into independent practice.

The basic condition for the implementation of supervised practice is to educate mentors of supervised practice.

The authors of the book developed such an educational program in 2010 within the European Social Funds project called 'Establishing a Network of Mentors and Training for the Supervised Practice of Psychologists'. This book presents the project and its results.
