IARTC History

The International Association for Resilience and Trauma Counseling was approved as an ACA Organizational Affiliate on July 6, 2021. Our application for ACA division status was unanimously approved on March 24, 2022. We are beyond excited and grateful for this long-sought for designation. We have so many to be grateful to, including YOU as our most stalwart supporters!  We extend our sincerest thanks to every member of the Governing Council, to all of ACA, particularly ACA's amazing CEO Richard Yep, and ACA President-Extraordinaire, Dr. S. Kent Butler. We thank Brandi McIntyre-- who guided us throughout this process with unbelievable patience, wisdom, and grace. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the IARTC Board of Directors, its Committee members and chairs, and each individual member as we could not have achieved this without each of you! We saw you as you lent your hard work and support to IARTC and we are more than appreciative! 

On January 5, 2023 IARTC's Articles of Incorporation were filed in the State of Virginia. We appreciate

Brandi McIntyre who provided support in this essential process.


On behalf of the IARTC Board,

Dr. Peggy Mayfield, IARTC President (2022 - 2023)
