Your ICPC Awards committee has been enriched by reviewing the nominated work from many outstanding international Counseling Psychologists. We are impressed by the many achievements of people who are making a difference in the world. The International and Many Faces of Counseling Psychology recognition is intended to showcase a few from among the many deserving individuals and groups undertaking innovative, creative, and adaptive work to bring a critical focus to strength-based, developmental, and preventive approaches to psychological issues.
Each recipient has stood out as adding to one or more elements of our recognition review criteria, which included consideration of the innovativeness and distinctiveness of the professional contribution, the degree to which there is an integration of science and practice traditions in counseling psychology, and strong professional contribution in one of the areas of outreach activities, theory development, practice adaptation, teaching/training practices, leadership initiatives, prevention programming, creative use of digital and other technologies, nontraditional populations application, or other specific areas. In addition, we are pleased to also acknowledge contributions which incorporated social justice/multicultural competence and an ability to share a vision of their contribution with others.
