Coming Back & Going Out: Counseling Goes Global

Join us as we explore counseling topics designed to educate, inspire and engage. This year’s conference will feature three groups of presenters who will highlight how their topics impact the counseling profession on a global level: (1) UCF Doctoral Alumni (serving at institutions around the United States), (2) Faculty from institutions outside of the United States, and (3) UCF Graduate students. All helping professionals are invited to participate in this interdisciplinary conference including mental health counselors, school counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, as well as other helping professionals (e.g., medical, nursing, physical therapy, etc.). Undergraduate and graduate students are also invited to attend.

This year’s UCF Counseling Conference will be hosted virtually in Zoom (login information will be sent to all registrants) and will feature clinicians and researchers in a wide variety of clinical topics: attendees from all backgrounds will learn valuable information that they can apply to their work settings with clients. During each of the 2 Conference days, attendees will be able to select the presentation topic that most interests them and thus participate in the learning environment. In order to record attendees’ participation, each person will need to sign in and sign out for the presentation they attended. A Certificate of Continuing Education or a Certificate of Attendance will be sent to each attendee, with the potential of earning 12 hours of CEs from the National Board for Certified Counselors. We look forward to your joining us at this year’s UCF Counseling Conference.
