    Time: 10:00 am to 11:00 am EDT

    Location: Online (using Zoom)

    It is clear to the Leadership Team that there is a need for open conversation regarding the various aspects of practicing counseling and coaching across international borders. In order to facilitate meaningful discussion around this topic we are holding two Virtual Coffees in April to target as many time zones as possible.

    Open Discussion 1: Monday, April 8th at 10:00 am EDT

    Open Discussion 2: Tuesday, April 9th at 9:00 pm EDT

    These discussions will be facilitated by C & C Leadership Team members and it is our hope that you will have the opportunity to share your experiences and questions regarding: the logistical aspects of practice online internationally, ethical and legal aspects of practice, and other such topics that are important in helping others in this capacity. We think these discussions will create a bridge to further conversation and exploration of how to manage these important issues. These discussions will not be recorded. Zoom links will be sent out prior to these dates.
