“… Your ACA is on the move. We have been learning to adapt to the changing needs of professional counselors, counselor educators and graduate students. We do this by asking you what you want. We also do this by hearing directly from you. That is something that will not change. We want to know how we can meet the professional needs that you have.”
With all that we will see students experiencing on K-12 and college campuses this fall, it is clear that mental health professionals working in school settings will be in high demand. Let the staff and leaders at ACA know what you need.
“We are entering a renaissance of counselor education, preparation and training.”
Moving forward, ACA must take what it learned from operating during a pandemic to maximize the services, resources, representation and advocacy we provide to the counseling profession. We do this so that you can better serve your clients, students and communities.
We can be discouraged by many things, but I find myself constantly reenergized by what I know you are all doing to make our communities, our nation and, really, our world a better place. You are what keeps me going, and for that I am grateful.
