January 2017 Malawi Institute

In partnership with the Global Engagement Institute (GEI), NBCC International held its second Malawi Counseling Institute in January. Leading the institute was Dr. Lorraine Guth, a professor and the clinical coordinator in the department of counseling at Indiana University in Pennsylvania. Six National Certified Counselors with diverse counseling backgrounds attended the institute in Lilongwe, Malawi. They engaged in teaching and curriculum development for the Africa University of Diplomacy, Counselling and International Relations. The participants also had the opportunity to present on various counseling topics for mental health professionals. In addition to the presentations, the counselors also met with the African Malawi Counselling Association and Mental Health Facilitator participants to gain a better understanding of the development of Malawi’s mental health professions.
