The ACA Center for Counseling Practice, Policy, and Research was developed to create, archive, disseminate and promote exemplary counseling practice information and resources for professional counselors, counselor educators, supervisors, students, legislators, the media and other consumers of applied counseling knowledge and to advocate for optimum counselor work and training conditions. The vision of the ACA Center is to be seen as both the premier place to obtain information and resources that focus on cutting edge practices and to be viewed as the focus of the counseling profession’s advocacy efforts for high quality workforce conditions. Please provide us feedback for additional services you would like to see and for the ACA Center’s continuous improvement.
The ACA Center for Counseling Practice, Policy, and Research is proud to introduce a NEW service for its ACA members: ACA Practice Briefs Project. The underlying goal of this project is to identify and solicit knowledgeable and skilled scholars in the counseling profession to construct brief, written, research-based summaries of what we, in the counseling profession, know works (e.g., best practices, evidence-based practices, and research-based approaches) related to a wide variety client presenting issues and counseling topics/issues. Each written brief is several pages in length, and each brief includes references. Check back often for newly posted briefs (PBs). We hope that you will find these briefs to be useful and valuable in your counseling practice. As always, we solicit your feedback on this new service for you, our most valued members!
