With more than 2000 members and affiliates who live these values through a wide diversity of identities, interests, and professional activities and commitments, SCP can offer YOU a home. If you are not yet a member or an active participant in SCP, we heartily invite your involvement! 

The success of our efforts rests heavily on the membership and the work of SCP volunteer leaders – our Executive Board, our committee chairs and members, our task group chairs and members, our student affiliate organization, and the staff of our central executive office. We currently have 13 Sections and 11 Special Interest Groups tailored to specific foci in counseling psychology. I encourage you to browse our websites and join as many Sections or Special Interest Groups as you like, many of which offer free or very inexpensive membership. We also have a nationally ranked journal, The Counseling PsychologistSCP Connect, and a Facebook page for more frequent updates of SCP activities. We hope you will make use of these many means of communication and connection with SCP.

Students may join the Student Affiliates of Seventeen (SAS), our national organization for students in counseling psychology. We are glad to inform that starting in 2022, SAS members, once registered, have voting privileges to voice your opinions. Additionally, SAS members are always enthusiastically welcomed into our sections, special interest groups, and special task groups, which offers the opportunity to network with the members in the Division Early career professionals also are vital participants in all SCP activities, from voting positions in governance to involvement in sections and special interest and task groups.

Depending on your needs, you have several membership options which are described in detail below. Regardless of which option you choose, you will receive a welcome packet by email within 2-3 weeks of joining Division 17. You will begin receiving The Counseling Psychologist shortly thereafter or at the beginning of the new membership year.
