Ruling n. 220/09


                                       The Council of Chartered Psychologists’ Association

                                                              (Region of Puglia)


-    Considering the complaints made by Mrs S. R. on November 4th, 2008, by Mrs C. C. on November 6th, 2008 and by Mrs R. D. M. on November  10th, 2008 against Dr Lorita Tinelli, a registered psychologist;

-         considering  Dr Lorita Tinelli’s clarification on November 18th, 2008 and on March 17th, 2009;




           -  at this stage of the matters our professional Association can’t begin proceedings against 

               Dr Lorita Tinelli because, after her clarification about what she had done and how she

               had behaved, nothing came out that could lead us to believe she had in any way broken

               our code of practice or of conduct;


     -  from the minutes written by the Commission for professional ethics  we deduce it is in  favour of the dismissal of the case;


     -  in the light of the above-mentioned consideration, we are in a position  to say we can  reject the 3 complaints produced  to us and therefore dismiss the case.


Considering all the aspects mentioned above, the Council of the Chartered Psychologists’ Association

                                                       DECIDES AS FOLLOWS:


1)      the complaints against Dr Lorita Tinelli can be dismissed, for the reasons explained in our  preliminary remark and here reported in full; therefore, there is no need to start any disciplinary proceedings against Dr Lorita Tinelli;


2)      according to art. 14 of the Disciplinary Regulations currently in force, this document must be urgently – no later than 20 days - sent by recorded delivery to the person interested, to the Public Prosecutor in Bari and to the people who made the complaint.  


You can appeal to the Law Court  in Bari  against this decision within the term of 30 days  from its notification.


 This document consists of 1 page, plus an introductory sheet.


            The Secretary                                                                          The President

    (Dr Carla Vulcano)                                                            (Dr Giuseppe Luigi Palma)
