"Chi Sigma Iota is the international honor society of professional counseling. It was established in 1985 through the efforts of leaders in the profession of counseling whose desire was to provide recognition for outstanding achievement as well as outstanding service within the profession. CSI was created for counselors-in-training, counselor educators, and professional counselors whose career commitment is to research and service through professional counseling.
Our mission is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, leadership and excellence in counseling, and to recognize high attainment in the pursuit of academic and clinical excellence in the profession of counseling."
Recognition and Standardization
Because common usage of the term "counselor" can be misleading, CSI provides professional counselors with a sense of definition, unity, and legitimacy within the relatively young and emerging field of counseling
CSI distinguishes professional counselors by their preparation at the graduate level in pursuit of both masters and doctoral degrees
For purposes of clarity among helping professionals who use counseling as a method or its techniques, the graduate education of members of the profession of counseling are defined by the national standards of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP)
