CACREP/CORE Announce New Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling Standards

by Ashwini Yelamanchili | Oct 09, 2013
CACREP and its corporate affiliate CORE have released the newly adopted Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling Standards (ClRC) for immediate use by master’s degree counseling programs seeking to become accredited.

The new standards can be found on the web at either www.cacrep.org or www.core-rehab.org.

Along with the release of the Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling Standards, CACREP and its corporate affiliate CORE have developed a conversion policy that outlines a process for 60 semester hour clinically-based programs that are currently accredited by CORE to seek dual accreditation as both a clinical rehabilitation counseling and a clinical mental health counseling program. While it is the intent to develop additional processes for applying for accreditation as a Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling program, currently only applications meeting criteria for the conversion policy process are being accepted for review. The conversion policy is accessible at www.cacrep.org and www.core-rehab.org.

CACREP and its corporate affiliate CORE will be presenting details of their new agreement and processes at the ACES conference in October 2013, the NCRE conferences in November 2013 and March 2014, the AASCB conference in January 2014, and the ACA conference in March 2014. Additional updates will be published on the CACREP and CORE websites, in ACA’s e-News and Counseling Today, as well as posted on CESNET, NCRE, and other counseling listservs.
