Using virtual reality equipment, we exposed students to custom virtual reality videos of volunteer clients roleplaying various counseling situations (e.g. suicidal ideation, trauma). We will share preliminary themes from a phenomenological investigation of counseling students experiencing these virtual counseling situations. Preliminary themes and findings of the qualitative data will be shared. The integration of these findings into ongoing research and counselor education will be discussed.
