Online Comparative School Counseling Research Conference

22-25 March 2020

The International Society for Policy Research in School-based Counseling is collaborating to support an international online conference on comparative research in school-based counseling that is being organized by the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society.  The conference will be held online, 22-25 March 2021.  Please plan to participate in order to promote the development of sound public policy that will support effective training and practice.

The mission of this conference is to establish a new comparative research field that could be called Comparative School Counseling Studies. Researchers, policy makers, policy advocates and graduate students will find the presentations  to be relevant and stimulating

This research field would:
·      Contribute to a better understanding of common features, similarities and differences in school counseling worldwide;
·      Support transferring best school counseling practices and innovations between countries;
·      Help improving school counseling training programs at colleges and universities; and
·      Support the development of policy to support effective school counseling practice.

BCES just launched the website for this conference:  https://csc-conf.one/.  As you can see, ISPRESC features prominently. Three ISPRESC members will deliver keynotes and 2 members will serve as section chairs.  In addition ISPESC Past-Chair John Carey is serving as the conference's co-chair.

Conference programs will be grouped into 3 sections:
·      School Counseling Policies (at local, state/provincial, and national level)
·      School Counseling Education & Training (at Bachelor, Master’s, and Doctoral level)
·      School Counseling Practices (at primary, secondary, and tertiary education level)

Please consider submitting a proposal for a presentation at the online conference and encourage colleagues to do so as well. Clear instruction for doing so can be found on the conference website. Proposals are due 12 February 2021. Please also see the conference website for information on publication opportunities.

ISPRESC members have a lot to contribute and we need to have a strong showing at this conference
