Cato, Sibyl Camille
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Ohio State University
This qualitative study explored counselor educators' perceptions of Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP) at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Specifically, this study investigated the barriers for seeking, maintaining, and/or achieving CACREP accreditation. The researcher utilized in-depth, individual interviews and biographical questionnaires. The sample comprised 14 HBCU counselor educators (i.e. 9 females and 5 males) at both CACREP accredited and non-CACREP accredited institutions. Three major themes emerged from participant responses: (a) resources needed to obtain and maintain CACREP accreditation, (b) multiple interpretations of requirements, and (c) validation received from having CACREP accreditation. Practical applications for counselor educators and recommendations for future research are included. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
