World Creativity and Innovation Day

Each spring the The Association for Creativity in Counseling celebrates the World Creativity and Innovation Day.


The World Creativity and Innovation Day was designated by the United Nations

to raise the awareness of the role of creativity and innovation in all aspects of human development.

















To celebrate, ACC hosts a virtual workshop for members highlighting creative approaches to

counseling, supervision, and education. 


Come join us for the third annual celebration of the World Day of Creativity and Innovation. The day will highlight information on creative interventions in combination with a time of engaging in active learning. Come for one session or the entire day.


This is an open event for anyone who would like to attend and free NBCC CEs will be available to members of the ACC. Please note, this will be a conference that requires active participation by attendees to receive CEUs (camera on for the session and engagement in discussion and activities).
