The International Society of Clinical Psychology (ISCP) was founded in 1998 in San Francisco, due to the initiative of a group of psychologists led by Donald K. Routh of the University of Miami. The ISCP was established to fill the need for a world organization of clinical psychologists, with the aim of providing a vehicle for global communication among clinicians, intended to foster multicultural understanding in the practice of clinical psychology, to enhance knowledge by cross-cultural research, to support the education and training of clinical psychologists based on a foundational level of knowledge, to encourage the development of a world certification for clinical psychologists, and to collaborate with other world organizations in providing clinical psychology expertise where required.
