Professional Counselors are confronted with events and discoveries that challenge our spiritual, ethical, and religious values. The mission of the Ohio Association for Spiritual, Ethical, & Religious Values in Counseling (OASERVIC) is to provide a forum for informed and thoughtful consideration of these issues and how they affect counselor education, the counseling profession and the client-counselor relationship.
OASERVIC seeks to create an association which empowers and enables the expression, exploration, development, and research involving spiritual, ethical, and religious value dimensions as they relate to the person, to society, and to the profession of counseling.
OASERVIC is one of the largest divisions of the Ohio Counseling Association.
OASERVIC is a state branch of the national Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Issues in Counseling ([ASERVIC] which is a division of the American Counseling Association [ACA]), and a division of the Ohio Counseling Association (OCA). ASERVIC was chartered in 1974. OASERVIC was charted in 1996 and focused on the "SPIRIT" in the "Mind - Body - Spirit" process of counseling.
