The Counsellor Educators Chapter (CE) is one of the oldest chapters of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. It was established very early in the Association’s history, back when the name was still the Canadian Guidance and Counselling Association.
The objectives of the CE Chapter are as follows:
- To provide an opportunity for counsellor educators to meet for discussion of critical issues in teaching, supervision, and research in the area of counsellor education.
- To provide a forum for ongoing information exchange and professional development (skill and knowledge based).
- To serve as a vehicle for lobbying appropriate university departments and facilities, governments and agencies to help counsellor education programs meet their primary goal of preparing professionally competent counsellors.
- To provide a means by which counsellor educators can help one another to develop and obtain research support provincially and federally through increased collaboration.
- To serve as a direct link with the National Association, thereby providing for the presentation of mutually sought aims and objectives.
These objectives are met in a number ways, including: with the CCPA managed Chapter listserv, the Chapter website, and the hosting of a CE Chapter workshop at each annual national CCPA conference.
