Grievance Protocols

The American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) conducts all conference, training and continuing education activities in conformance with the AACC Code of Ethics, in concert with the Ethical Principles of the APA, NBCC, ASWB, and the APT. As such, the AACC will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content and interactions with program participants. Compliance with these requirements will be monitored by AACC.s Director of Professional Development/Continuing Education and Social Worker Consultant. In the event of something that may require intervention and/or action on the part of the AACC, the following protocol will serve as a guideline for handling such grievances:

  1. If the grievance concerns a presenter, the content covered by that presenter, the level of presentation, the facilities, or the style of presentation, then the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format and have it submitted to the attention of either the Conference Director, the Director of Professional Development, or the Social Worker Consultant. These individuals, along with designated AACC staff members will then process the complaint and communicate pertinent information and appropriate feedback to the speaker. However, the confidentiality of the person filing the complaint will be maintained at all time. If the participant requests action, the following outcomes are possible depending on the individual circumstances:
    1. attempt to move the participant to another workshop or
    2. provide a credit for a subsequent year's workshop or
    3. provide a partial or full refund of the workshop fee or
    4. provide an onsite credit in the AACC store
  2. If the grievance concerns the AACC Continuing Education program, in a specific regard, the individual filing the grievance will document the complaint in writing and the President of the AACC, Director of Professional Development, and Social Worker Consultant, among others, will attempt to arbitrate the matter.
  3. Participants may always contact the AACC call center at 1-800-526-8673 or via email at contactmemberservices@aacc.net
