The UNCP Counseling Programs has successfully completed a registration process with International Registry of Counsellor Education Programs (IRCEP). The UNCP Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Professional School Counseling graduate programs are already nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and now are internationally recognized by the IRCEP.
The International Registry of Counsellor Education Programs (IRCEP) was created in 2009 to foster excellence in the education and training of professional counsellors worldwide. As an international quality assurance review process, IRCEP was purposefully designed to empower programs to develop counsellor training curricula appropriate to their country, regions, and/or culture, while simultaneously recognizing the broad tenets of education and training common to the practice of counselling regardless of practice location.
