The “Counseling and Technology Interest Network” (CTIN) was approved by the American Counseling Association’s (ACA) Governing Council on March 9, 2015. The Counseling and Technology Interest Network was created because technology influences all counseling’s educators, policy-makers, researchers and practitioners. If you are attending the ACA conference this week, we will be in booth #306 at the ACA Exhibit Hall. We also will be having an organizational meeting this weekend to explore how we might best serve you:
Date: Saturday, March 14, 2015
Time: 2:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.
Location: Discovery Room #44
The Hyatt Regency Orlando Hotel Mission of Counseling and Technology Interest Network:
< p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>To provide useful support for all ACA members seeking to responsibly apply technology across the spectrum of research, policy, education/training and practice. Our very own Dr. Marlene Maheu is the President of this Interest Network. She was accompanied in the effort by former ACA President, Donna Ford (1999) and a number of other ACA leaders and members. This victory follows the defeat of a similar effort by professionals at the American Psychological Association in February of 2014, when APA’s Council of Representatives vetoed a motion for an APA Division to support best practices in the use of technology at the APA.
