In 1983, three Chicago-area private schools piloted the Rainbows curriculum. Over the next 30 years, this grass roots program expanded throughout the United States and into 11 countries, serving over three million youth.
For three decades, Rainbows has sustained children and families in their tragedy through peer-support group programs and services. These programs are strategically designed to address the social and emotional well-being of youth and
their family after a life-altering loss or traumatic event such as divorcing parents or the death or absence of a loved one.
We partner with schools, faith communities, and other agencies to implement adult-led, peer support groups. We offer interactive, online training for group facilitators and provide age-appropriate curriculum for youth participants. We help children develop problem-solving and coping skills, learn anger management, alleviate depression and anxiety, and reduce emotional pain and suffering.

What does this mean for members of the public? It means that if you receive counselling services from an RCC, you can have confidence in their experience and qualifications – that they have met the highest standards of their profession. Today, we represent over 3,900 Registered Clinical Counsellors across BC.
Every person who receives the ‘RCC’ counselling designation in British Columbia has met specific educational and training criteria required by the BCACC. What’s more, our RCC members have not only met the academic, clinical competence and professional requirements, they have voluntarily committed themselves to practice according to an ethical code of conduct and standards of practice.
