Abstract

Admission procedures in counselor education have received little focus regarding their essential function in gatekeeping. By exploring current admission trends, specifically as they relate to the identification of preferred personal qualities, implications for development of more rigorous admission gatekeeping procedures will be addressed. A call to action to the entire field of counseling is necessary, demanding this standard of excellence be implemented in an effort to protect the field on a global level.
