Promoting Counseling Excellence
through Global Networking and Advocacy
Dr. Andrea L. Dixon, CSI President-Elect
Friday, March 22, 2013, 1:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Advocacy for our clients and for the counseling profession is a competency taught in all levels of counselor preparation, encouraged through leadership in CSI chapters, and modeled and mentored by the leaders of our Society. In today’s global society, counseling advocacy must be considered as a global challenge. CSIs Global Network was created as a web-based resource to inform counselors of the status of our profession in countries around the world, and raise awareness of the critical need for counseling advocacy on a global scale. As the network expands, we are challenged to listen, dialog, learn, and grow through experiences and partnerships with counselors around the world.
This year, during our leadership workshop that will be held Friday, March 22nd from 1:00-3:30 PM, we will explore the promotion of counseling excellence through global advocacy. We will begin our workshop by recognizing our 2013-2014 Leadership Fellows and Interns. We will then introduce a panel of a few of the counseling profession’s leaders and scholars who have promoted counseling excellence throughout the world with their research, advocacy, and leadership efforts.
The panelists will include Drs. Carol Bobby, Courtland Lee, and Ted Remley. They will discuss their views on the need for the globalization of the counseling profession, how they have reached across country borders as advocates of the counseling profession, successes and struggles they have experienced in their global advocacy efforts, and how they have engaged others around the world through research, service, advocacy, and leadership. Participants also will have an opportunity to interact with panel members and other CSI leaders during the small group discussions.
