The American Counseling Association is holding their annual conference at The David L. Lawrence Convention Center over the next four days. 3,600 counselors will be attending. They will include everything from mental health counselors to guidance counselors to marriage counselors. They will attend educational sessions, listen to speeches and browse an exhibition hall full of textbooks and services they may be able to utilize.
Although there are different types of counselors at the conference they all attend the same workshops which include topics such as social justice counseling and self-injurious behavior in the classroom. David Kaplan, Chief Professional Officer of The American Counseling Association says that the counselors can learn from other counselors that they might not normally have the opportunity to interact with.
The conference is co-sponsored by The American Counseling Association.
