About The Association for Creativity in Counseling

Welcome to the website for the Association for Creativity in Counseling! ACC was established in 2004 as a forum for counselors, counselor educators, and counseling students interested in creative, diverse, and relational approaches to counseling. We are especially interested in promoting counseling approaches that support mutually supportive, positive, growth-fostering relationships. ACC is also committed to researching and defining relational competencies that facilitate good-will, empathic personal and professional connections, and the appropriate use of power.

The American Counseling Association (ACA) and the Association for Creativity in Counseling (ACC) are pleased to offer the ACA-ACC Creative Interventions and Activities Clearinghouse. This database is a joint project of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the Association for Creativity in Counseling (ACC). It is designed to showcase innovative activities and interventions developed for counselors by counselors. The clearinghouse also serves as an idea and information exchange focused on creative and relational interventions for counselors working with diverse populations. The clearinghouse was developed to help practitioners discover and share activities and interventions used in five basic practice settings: A) Mental Health Agency/Private Practice Counseling B) Rehabilitation Counseling C) School Counseling D) College Counseling E) Counselor Education and Supervision
