The Department of Behavioral Sciences houses three student organizations, as noted below. Students are encouraged to participate in student organizations, as this will enrich the education experience, provide professional development and leadership opportunities, and also provide outlets for advocacy opportunities. The available student organizations represent student chapters of three national professional organizations: Chi Sigma Iota International, theAmerican Association of Christian Counselors, and the Society of Christian Psychology.
Alpha Chi Alpha chapter of Chi Sigma Iota, International
The Alpha Chi Alpha chapter was reactivated in April 2013 and is actively recruiting members. Chapter reactivation is paired with the Department’s application for CACREP accreditation. Please contact the Faculty Advisor, Dr. David Brown, with any questions.
American Association of Christian Counselors
The student chapter of AACC is actively involved at Cincinnati Christian University. On the second Tuesday of every month, a Counseling Forum is conducted to provide topics of interest to the University community. Previous topics include self care, suicide prevention, the effects of food on your mood, brain physiology, theophostic counseling, emotionally-focused couples counseling, and sexual addiction therapy.
Society of Christian Psychology
A division of the American Association of Christian Counselors, SCP is a professional society for the development of a distinct Christian psychology to fully engage with “contemporary culture, science, and technology.” The student chapter of SCP is actively recruiting members. Any questions should be directed to Dr. Jay Kidwell, Faculty Advisor.
