Center for Creativity and Change

  • Professional development workshops started in the Department of Counseling in 2002. In 2005, the Department of Counseling created the Center for Counselor Training and Services, and, in 2015, the name was changed to the Center for Creativity and Change

    Since 2002, over 1,700 individuals have participated in Center workshops. Over that period, 29 workshops, featuring nationally and internationally known leaders in the counseling profession, have been offered by the Center. 

    The center’s director is John McCarthy (jmccarth@iup.edu). See the 2016–17 members of the Center for Creativity and Change Advisory Board. Join our e-mail list!
