    Dr. Mark Stauffer was elected as president-elect of the Association for Humanistic Counseling for the 2017-2020 term. Dr. Stauffer served AHC on membership, leadership fellow’s award, and current affairs committees and has presented over the years at AHC sponsored sessions. In ACA, Dr. Stauffer has also served as Co-chair of ACA’s International Committee, was a CSI International Leaders Fellow and an ACA Emerging Leaders Training participant. Currently, he serves as a Core Faculty member at Walden University in the CMHC Program. Mark has co-edited multiple texts on topics such as Group Work; Career Counseling; Addictions Counseling; Couples, Marriage, and Family Counseling; and most recently completed, Human Development Across the Lifespan (2016). He has been a counselor in the Portland Metro Area in Oregon at crises centers and other non-profit organizations working with individuals, couples and families, often with homeless and at-risk populations.

    As AHC President-Elect, Dr. Stauffer is committed to the core principles and mission of the Humanistic association. Dr. Stauffer plans to promote AHC’s presence and place in counseling and further the aspirations and long term convictions of past and present AHC leaders and our community of members. Dr. Stauffer's goals are to:

    • Promote AHC's annual conference and presence at the ACA conference
    • Continue the division’s traditions (e.g., Empty Plate Project) and support of the Journal of Humanistic Counseling
    • Continue to enhance the Emerging Leaders Project and cultivate important mentoring leadership transitions for those who are emerging
    • Work closely with divisions, branches, and regions of ACA and other humanistic interest groups
    • Support leadership as they continue to improve our online presence: web pages, webinars, newsletter/infochange
    • Finally, Dr. Stauffer's wish is to have a seamless transition of presidents and to carry on important work of our current president, Dr. Vereen, and president elect, Dr. Moore. 


    Let's take a moment to congratulate Dr. Stauffer on a milestone in AHC leadership and the past, present, and future positive impact he will have on the division.​

    Dear AHC Members, 
    • If you would like to build new and invigorating connections with like-minded counselors, educators, grad students and new professionals
    • If you would like to advance research in our field from the humanistic counseling perspective

    Please consider our invitation to join an AHC Humanistic Research Group.     

    Our aim is to have each new group consist of humanistic counselors, educators and students with common interests and stratified abilities and resources. In this way, each member can have the role that she or he is ready for, and each group can accomplish more together.

    To begin, respond through our survey. Its purpose is to help us match your interests with others, while taking care to form groups with stratified abilities such that each can contribute and all can succeed. The survey link is: https://johncarroll.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_eOEyzYl6mBGxPW5

    Please respond by September 30th. We will close link for this round of new groups at that time.

    Together we can make the world a better place!

    If you have questions, contact AHC President, Jeff L. Cochran, at jcochr11@utk.edu

    Many thanks,
