A Seat at The Table- Barriers and Solutions to Achieving Parity of Status for Counselors

Mar 31, 2019 7:30am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 8:30am


Description

The term parity evokes a wide range of issues for professional mental health counselors, such as equal pay and client access to services. Parity also extends to equality in terms of status. A growing concern for counselors is that despite their advanced education and training, and their unique skill set and product, they do not enjoy a “seat at the table” with other professionals where crucial mental health issues are discussed. The how, where, and why of this disparity are presented in this session, as well as possible solutions.
