International Registry of Counsellor Education Programs:  The First 10 Years and What’s Next, Sunday, October 13, 9:00 AM – 9:50 AM PT (50-Minute Education Session)

LoriAnn Stretch, IRCEP Managing Director, and Syntia Dietz, IRCEP Steering Committee Member

Counseling as a profession in the U.S. is fairly well developed; however, this is not the case in the rest of the world.  We live in a global society and have a responsibility to teach and supervise from a global perspective.  Counselor educators often express an interest in engaging in global partnerships but do not know where to start.  The International Registry of Counsellor Education Programs (IRCEP), the international division of CACREP, provides ongoing support for global partnerships, quality assurance standards, information exchanges, and assistance in the professionalization of counselling worldwide. Join this session to learn the history of IRCEP and see how you can contribute to the next 10 years of counselling education at a global level.
