SIG Welcome Statement

Dear Members or Potential Members,

As the current SIG Coordinator, I am pleased to welcome you to explore the Society of Counseling Psychology’s (SCP) Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and their respective webpages. The Society of Counseling Psychology works to provide opportunities for involvement of all members, and our SIGs are part of the SCP structure that allow such involvement. SIGs are initiated, formed, and maintained by members. A SIG can be formed on any topic related to Counseling Psychology and in line with the bylaws and goals of SCP.

The SIGs of SCP welcome all professional, ECP, and student members. There are no dues (beyond being a member of SCP). Activities vary by SIG, but include listservs, convention programs, collaborative research projects, and professional networking and mentoring. I hope you find a SIG that addresses an area of interest for you, or that perhaps you will consider initiating a new SIG. It’s an opportunity to be part of something bigger!

If you’re new to SCP, becoming involved in a SIG’s activities can be a terrific way to get involved in the Society. Please feel free to contact me, or any SIG Chair with questions.
