Counselor Educators & Researchers
NCDA follows a constituency model to better represent and serve the diverse needs of our members. These groupings are designed to help you in your networking, to facilitate greater connection with colleagues who may share similar interests and work settings, and to enhance communication between the membership and the NCDA Board.
In this section of the website, you will have the opportunity to hear from the trustee for the constituency group that most closely represents your work setting or interest affiliation. Similarly, when attending the NCDA Global Conference, you can meet with fellow participants in your constituency groups. This section may post results of these conference gatherings or additional resources your trustee wishes to share. The categories of links listed here serve as a connection to a select few valuable resources. It is not intended to be all-inclusive, and will grow/change in the future. Contact your Constituency Trustee for more information and watch your emails from this group.

Integrating Career Development and Counseling Content into the Core 2016 CACREP Areas
NEW! The 2017 Counselor Educator Academy (Advocacy Subgroup, 2021) has gathered resources to help counselor educators integrate career development into courses beyond the career course. One career course is the norm for most counseling programs, which is not enough to adequately cover necessary information. Additionally, career and personal issues cannot be separated. By infusing career into all 8 Core CACREP areas, we can model the way. This list includes textbook recommendations and research, activities, and additional resources for each of the eight CACREP Core Areas.
