Our funding is derived from our own professional activities, and from grants awarded for research, educational, and service projects.  The IDPP strictly adheres to the ethical principles and standards of professional psychology in the Dominican Republic, and does not accept any donations or funds that may compromise or limit our professional independence.  


The IDPP does not endorse or recommend any commercial product or service, and any advertisement accepted to be included in our campaigns or products must rigorously adhere to our professional and ethical principles and standards, which specifically mandate that the nature of the advertisement must not promote any behavior, product, or activity that may be harmful to human beings, society, or Nature.  No commercial  advertisement of any kind is accepted for display or exhibition at our offices or Internet website in connection to the rendering of our professional clinical services.


Please note that although the IDPP procures the best and safest electronic services it can afford, due to the inherent nature of the technology, the IDPP tries to assure but CANNOT guarantee the confidentiality of the information obtained by our Internet, e-mail, and other related service providers, as well as by third parties beyond our knowledge.
