In February 2011 the ANZSSA Executive Committee formally endorsed an updated version of the "Guidelines for the Provision of Counselling Services in the Post Secondary Education Sectors in Australia and New Zealand". This is the 3rd iteration of such guidelines endorsed by ANZSSA. This document is reproduced in full in this first issue for 2011 (Volume 37) to bring the document to the attention of the JANZSSA readership. The writing and editorial review team for this document were members of a Heads of Counselling Services forum which draws is participants from those service managers working at post-secondary educational institutions located in Sydney and Canberra. The review and redrafting of these best practice guidelines was the primary activity undertaken by this group during 2009/2010. All are members of ANZSSA and hope that their work is a useful resource to those involved in the provision of counselling services in post-secondary education.
