According to the ACA Code of Ethics (2014), gatekeeping is a responsibility of counselors; however, counselors report reluctance to practice gatekeeping. This is critical because gatekeeping protects the integrity of the profession and the treatment provided to clients. This session will highlight the need for gatekeeping and explore the barriers to gatekeeping. In addition, the presenters will provide information about procedures, processes, and best practices of gatekeeping and remediation.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. Identify how the practice of gatekeeping is advantageous not only for the counseling profession, but also how gatekeeping protects clients served by counselors
2. Understand the history of gatekeeping in the counseling profession and be able to identify barriers to gatekeeping in counselor education and supervision
3. Distinguish gatekeeping models, procedures, and best practices to overcome gatekeeping barriers
