Chapter president Cynthia Doney delivers induction statement to new members of Chi Sigma Iota.

Regent University's School of Psychology & Counseling (SPC) inducted 63 new members into the Alpha Omega Lambda chapter of Chi Sigma Iota (CSI), the international academic honor society for students, professional counselors and counselor educators.

SPC faculty advisors Dr. Rosemary Thompson and Dr. Elisabeth Suarez explained the membership benefits of CSI, which include job referrals, professional networking, leadership development and community involvement. CSI's national mission is to promote counseling excellence on an increasingly international level. The mission of Regent's CSI chapter is to promote scholarship, research, professionalism, leadership and excellence in counseling.

Dr. Gary Collins, SPC distinguished visiting professor, was the event's featured speaker who spoke on the role of leadership in counseling. He said that counselors are "change agents"—a people who lead others to adapt and cope with change.

"In a time where people are grappling with change, such as the recession and reduced income, there is an accompanying trauma," Collins said. "Counselors must affect change through behaviors and attitudes...We are mentors, encouragers and teachers. Leading is an action, not a position."

The newly inducted officers for 2009-2010 are Tricia Gunter (president), Darla Timberlake (president elect), Deborah Mangum (secretary) and Nicole DiLella (historian and publicity).
