The Evolution of Specialties in the CACREP Standards: CACREP's Role in Unifying the Profession
Bobby, Carol L.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v91 n1 p35-43 Jan 2013
This article explores the evolution of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs' (CACREP's) accreditation of program area specialties and how CACREP's decision to accredit specialties as separate programs has affected the counseling profession's ability to view itself as a single profession. The article links the development of CACREP and its accreditation structure to other historical and political events occurring within the profession and includes documentation of CACREP's efforts to self-correct through policy development that emphasizes counseling first and specialties second.
