The Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) is a national information network designed to provide users with ready access to education literature. One of the clearinghouses is the ERIC Counseling and Personnel Services Clearinghouse (CAPS). Established at The University of Michigan in 1966, CAPS was one of the original ERIC clearinghouses. Topics covered by CAPS include: the training, supervision, and continuing professional development of counseling, student services, and human services professionals; counseling theories, methods, and practices; the roles of counselors, social workers, and psychologists in all educational settings at all educational levels; career planning and development; self-esteem and self-efficacy; marriage and family counseling; and mental health services to special populations such as substance abusers, pregnant teenagers, students at risk, public offenders, etc. CAPS can help counseling professionals find the information they need, give worldwide visibility to articles and resources that counselors produce, provide counselors with high quality, low-cost resources, and introduce counselors to CAPS information tools such as CounselorQuest and Treasure Chest.
