Awards to Oregon individual counselors and groups to recognize outstanding contributions to the profession. Awards are given in the categories of human rights, distinguished service, distinguished public advocate, and the highest level of excellence in a variety of contributions.

The award categories are as follows:

The Leona Tyler Award
This award is designed to recognize counselors who have made outstanding contributions to the profession and whose work has had statewide implications for counseling. Dr. Leona E. Tyler was Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Oregon. Her many contributions to the profession, including research, writing, teaching, and supervision of graduate students, attained both national and international acclaim. The award was established in 1967 and was initially presented to Dr. Tyler, announcing that in her honor, an annual award was being established by the Association. It is ORCA’s highest award.

The Human Rights Award
Dr. David Capuzzi, counselor educator at Portland State University, established this award in 1986-87, during his year as President of the American Association for Counseling and Development (now the American Counseling Association – ACA). As a state branch of ACA, Oregon Counseling Association believes this award is one opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to respecting and fostering human dignity. The award is presented to members who have demonstrated an exemplary level of professional and personal commitment in the areas of human rights and the advancement of human dignity.

Distinguished Service Award
This award enables the Association to recognize publicly persons or groups who have contributed substantially to the Association and the counseling profession. This award is traditionally presented to Association members. However, non-members such as legislators, school officials, agency administrators, or others in the larger community may also receive the award for outstanding contributions to the Association.

Distinguished Public Advocate Award
This award honors those who have made outstanding contributions to ORCA’s public policy and advocacy efforts on behalf of LPCs, LMFTs, and all of the people we serve. This award may honor those who have worked to pass an important piece of legislation that advanced access to quality mental health care for all Oregonians, or who have effectively protected LPCs and LMFTs in the legislature, or who have successfully worked with government agencies on the state or federal level to enhance professional counseling and marriage and family therapy.
