The Tipi Association is a non-profit association, governed by the French Law of 1 July 1901.

It was created on April 7, 2003 in Montpellier (France) by Luc Nicon to provide an administrative and legal framework for a large study of more than 300 people suffering from emotional difficulties (learn more about the origin of emotional regulation).

The Tipi association aims to promote, disseminate and share our natural capacity for emotional regulation.

The head office of the Tipi association is located at 4 rue Pagès in Montpellier – 34070 France
French ID (SIRET number) 448 994 012 00012

The Tipi association’s goal is for everyone in the world to be aware of emotional regulation and to know how to use it.

It is in this spirit that it disseminates information, offers training and organizes many volunteer activities.
The primary purpose of the association is, however, to fund and supervise research on emotional regulation.
The association’s resources come mainly from services provided to approved trainers as part of the professional training courses they run.
The Tipi association is also entitled to receive donations.
