Accreditation Steps

1

Preparation

Center leaders complete self-studies and assemble robust documentation of policies and practices to share with a site visitor. A Solihten Institute Accreditation Coordinator will work with the Center on scheduling the visit and structuring the meeting.

2

Site Visit

A site visitor will perform a 1-2 day visit to the counseling center - reviewing materials, conducting interviews, observing meetings, and checking records to affirm compliance with the accreditation process.

3

Reporting

Initial findings and observations are discussed at the end of the visit, followed by a formal written report that is reviewed by the Solihten Institute Accreditation Coordinator. Center leaders then prepare a written response to the report and send it, along with any further documentation, to the Institute Coordinator.

4

Decision-Making

The Accreditation Committee acts on a recommendation from the Institute Coordinator, along with a summary of the site-visit report and Center response. Accreditation status is then reported to Center leads and the Institute Board of Directors. Once approved, Full Accreditation is valid for up to four years.*

*Approval of Full Accreditation does not guarantee that a Center is in full compliance, nor does Solihten Institute accreditation in any way imply an assurance that a Center has or will maintain continuous compliance with the standards during the accreditation period. Rather, Solihten Institute accreditation indicates that in the best judgment of the visitor and Solihten Institute Accreditation Committee, based on the evidence presented at the time of the review, the Center met all the standards in ways that the committee judged to be acceptable.
