HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s Counseling Center has been re-accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc. (IACS).
An Alexandria, Va., based organization of United States, Canadian and Australian counseling agencies, the IACS was established in 1972 to encourage and aid counseling agencies to meet high professional standards through peer evaluation. The organization also informs the public about counseling services that are competent and reliable.
“The University Counseling Center was evaluated by IACS against high standards of counseling practice and was found to offer competent and reliable professional services to its clientele,” said University Counseling Center Director Barbara B. Hebert. “Approval by IACS is dependent upon evidence of excellence of counseling performance.”
The center is evaluated by IACS every four years with a site visit scheduled every eight years.
Southeastern’s Counseling Center is staffed by licensed mental health professionals and offers individual, couples, family and group counseling, as well as workshops and consultations. A division of the Office of Student Affairs, the center serves Southeastern students, faculty and staff.
