The Journal of Counselor Leadership & Advocacy (JCLA), a publication of Chi Sigma Iota Counseling Society International, provides professional counselors, counselor educators, and counseling students with research and evidence‐based recommendations in topics that promote scholarship, research, professionalism, leadership, advocacy, and excellence in counseling.

The CSI Exemplar

Published three times per year, The CSI Exemplar is a flagship publication of Chi Sigma Iota. It includes feature articles on topics such as leadership, research, and clinical practice in counseling, and highlights the activities of CSI chapters and members.

Client Rights & Responsibilities

Both counselors and clients are encouraged to read Client Rights and Responsibilities (classic version or updated version). This brochure was developed jointly by Chi Sigma Iota and the National Board for Certified Counselors to help clients be informed consumers of counseling services. We encourage counselors to print the brochure and make copies available for clients or frame it and place it in their office waiting area. Counselors also may wish to share the link to the brochure with clients.
