About


Originally introduced at the 1997 ACPA Convention in Chicago by David L. Gilles-Thomas (University at Buffalo) and Wendy Settle (University of Notre Dame), the Counseling Center Village has become an important resource for counseling center professionals around the world. Colleagues separated by many miles are easily able to share their resources and expertise. Work created by counseling center professionals no longer gathers dust in our offices or needs to be recreated again somewhere else.  More information about the history of the CCV can be found here:  Counseling Centers On the Net

The mission of the Counseling Center Village is to bring together in a single organized web site the expertise and resources of counseling center professionals so that we can all benefit from each other’s’ efforts. The majority of the content of the Village web pages is created by counseling centers professionals. Although links to non-counseling center sites are included, the emphasis is on gathering together resources, information, and services created by counseling center professionals.
