I am strongly opposed to the CACREP only movement. There are many competent and compassionate counselors who have graduated from Non-CACREP Colleges and Universities with skills that are helpful to many people, myself included. My opinion is that the CACREP movement is designed to funnel prospective students into universitites who comply with the standards of CACREP for marketing purposes. CACREP certification does not elevate the level and ability of counselors, it segregates the field and unfairly punishes those from non-CACREP schools, who have an array of talent and abilities to offer and help others.
