The University of Maine Counseling Center and Touchstone Resources has been reaccredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc. (IACS), a Virginia-based organization of United States, Canadian and Australian counseling agencies.
The IACS evaluated the UMaine center against high standards of counseling practice and found it to offer competent and reliable professional services. Reaccreditation by IACS also requires evidence of continuing professional development and a demonstration of excellence in counseling performance.
Directed by Douglas Johnson, the Counseling Center is a department in the Division of Student Affairs and provides services and programs that promote the personal development and psychological well-being of UMaine students. The center also assists in developing and maintaining a university atmosphere conducive to growth and maximizing student educational achievement. Touchstone Resources promotes student engagement, connections and a sense of belonging to the UMaine community.
