Counseling Alumni Connection (CAC)
The purpose of the Counseling Alumni Connection (CAC) is to keep graduates of the Department of Professional Counseling connected to the Monmouth University community by providing quality programming for the promotion of professional and personal development. Alumni are encouraged to participate in educational programs and ongoing initiatives sponsored by the CAC. All CAC programming and its participants will adhere to the Code of Ethics of the American Counseling Association.
The CAC hosts multiple continuing education events throughout the year, including the annual Current Topics in Counseling Conference, “From Our Own” Presentation Series, and Guest Lecture Series. Recorded past workshops/lectures are available for viewing in our presentation archive. The CAC also facilitates a Mentorship Program, Social Justice/Advocacy Program, and monthly Peer Consultation Group. Please visit the department’s Continuing Education website for upcoming opportunities.
CAC Peer Consultation Group (PCG)
The mission of the Peer Consultation Group is to provide an informal, confidential forum for counselors to discuss clinical issues that arise in practice and to process reactions to clients. Colleagues will have the opportunity to share challenges, offer solutions, further develop skills, and explore areas of strengths and weaknesses in a supportive environment. The PCG is an additional avenue outside of an employment setting for like-minded others to share information and experiences that will facilitate both professional and personal development for those working in a helping role.
Peer Consultation is a critical component in developing as a professional. The CAC is proud to provide this opportunity and welcomes LACs, LPCs, and recent Clinical Mental Health Counseling program graduates to participate. The group adheres strictly to the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics. Group meetings are held monthly online via Zoom and are announced via e-mail. Please view this flyer for a list of upcoming dates in Summer and Fall 2020 and visit the registration website to RSVP to the next scheduled meeting. All participants must register in advance in order to receive the confidential Zoom link and password.
