2.2 No member shall make false claims as to their training or skills nor use personal testimonials.

2.4 A member shall at the time when any person first becomes their patient disclose if requested to such person the usual terms and conditions under which they will continue to see that person.
2.5 A member shall not behave in an unprofessional manner towards another psychoanalyst, whether or not a member, in connection with any communication with a patient, former patient or potential patient.
