Courageous Conversations, Actions and Advocacy in Counselor Education and the Classroom: Lessons Learned from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
Courageous conversations, actions and advocacy will address not only strategies for enhancing the multicultural counseling course, but address tools for increasing awareness of microagressions. Examples from everyday life are compared to congruence as counselors and counselor educators. This session focuses on applying the multicultural counseling competencies through experiential activities, navigating the emotional rollercoaster of students’ reactions and making meaning of “in the moment” exchanges. This process-oriented approach will be presented in an interactive and transformational format to include a demonstration, pair-share activities and question and answer. Attendees will have a unique opportunity add to their Multicultural Toolbox.

CHANGED: If Haidt is Right: Adjusting Counseling Pedagogy to Accommodate Moral Intuitions
Jonathan Haidt (2012) identifies six “taste buds” that undergird moral decision making and six values that shape individuals’ moral view of the world. The balance of these six taste receptors differs considerably across conservatives, liberals, and libertarians and can account for inabilities to take on others’ perspectives. This session will introduce these moral foundations as a way to better understand and respect the values and moral decision making of our clients, students, and colleagues.

Psychometric Properties of the Consultation Practice Proficiency Scale (CPPS)
While consultation is an important aspect of counselors’ scope of practice (CACREP, 2015; ACA, 2014), it is an under-researched area of scholarship (e.g., Guiney et al., 2014). The dearth of counseling-specific consultation research may exist due to the lack of a valid measure specifically designed to assess counselors’ consultation proficiencies. In this presentation, we will introduce the Consultation Practice Proficiency Scale (CPPS) and present its psychometric properties.

Current Research on Flipped Learning in Counselor Education: Findings from Three Recent Studies
Flipped learning is a teaching method in which instructors present material outside of class via video lectures, freeing up class time for application-based activities. The approach is growing in popularity in counselor education and warrants empirical examination. We will present three recent studies about flipped learning in counselor education: a phenomenology, a causal-comparative study, and a group comparison study. We will highlight findings and share implications for counselor educators.

It requires a holistic examination of what is occurring in a person’s life and the creative matching of those events to the diagnostic categories and criteria that are offered by DSM-5/ICD-10, which stimulates distinctions among the related disorders on a different level to complement the specifics of diagnostic symptoms.

Creating Safe Spaces: Understanding the Importance of Trauma-Informed Care
Trauma is a common thread of human experience. Individual response to personal trauma is dependent on many factors. While resilience plays a role, physiological factors can override the capabilities of even the most resilient people. The literature shows that the damage often follows into adulthood. To help the population, counselors need training in the sustained emotional and cognitive effects of trauma. This provides the best chance of building resiliency and gaining tools for future success.

Vicarious traumatization was first described in the counseling literature in the early 90’s. McCann & Pearlman (1990) described vicarious traumatization (VT) as a process by which a person experiences negative psychological effects as a result of working with trauma victims. Repeated exposure to trauma may cause cognitive distortions in mental health professionals. There has not been much comprehensive and rigorous research on VT specific to clinicians who work in inner-urban cities. In this session, we will discuss African-American counselors. Also, after this session, participants will be able to describe vicarious traumatization, they will able to describe what they can do in their professional roles to prevent vicarious trauma, and they will be able to describe what steps that can be taken to provide support for those who are already experiencing vicarious trauma.

Stepfamily success is dependent on establishing roles and responsibilities that work within the new family.  The expected roles of a nuclear family do not apply to step parents.  There is a need for clear, concrete roles for each person within the blended family. The therapeutic techniques from a traditional family do not work.  Focusing on the developmental cycles of a stepfamily teaches the members how to problem solve while getting their needs met, thus resulting in a successful family unit.

We will discuss ways in which supervisors can use trauma-informed supervision to best support supervisees working with cases of religious abuse.

Love Languages Across the Lifespan
People have a love tank that is fueled by their love language(s). When a person’s love tank is full, they feel genuinely loved by those around them. Children and teenagers with full love tanks grow up to be well-adjusted adults. An empty love tank can lead to internal struggles causing children to look for love in the wrong places. Today’s problems stem from a lack of feeling loved within relationships. Learning to speak a person’s love language can offer a positive solution to those problems.

Equipping Intern Counselors to Address Poverty and Social Inequity
Clients’ narratives of their lives include stories of social injustice and inequity experiences; however, counselors interpret those experiences through their own lens. That lens may not fully understand the complete ramifications of a client’s story. Furthermore, counselors may not be aware of the blind spots they have towards clients who live and experience poverty and inequity. This session will focus on gaining a personal awareness of how poverty and inequity issues impact client systems.

Training Students and Supervisees in a Unique Model to Understand Diverse Clients
Many students and supervisees are often insecure about working with diverse clients despite the need to develop multicultural competencies. Today’s multicultural focus utilizes prescriptive approaches based on cultural groups but does not consider individual differences within those groups. This presentation will help counselor educators and supervisors to teach students and supervisees to apply a model that allows for addressing individual nuances within larger groups.

Animal Assisted Interventions in Supervision: Review, Research, and Implications
Robust literature exists in support of the inclusion of Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI) in therapy settings, yet little is known about the effects of AAI in the context of supervision. Recent conceptual literature has promoted the potential benefits of the inclusion of AAI in supervision. This session will review conceptual support for integrating AAI in supervision and discuss results of a recent case study on AAI in supervision. Implications and future research will be described.

Considerations for Supervisors Working with Counselors New to Integrated Healthcare Settings
Researchers have found that counselors need additional training to work in an integrated healthcare setting (Glueck, 2015). Additional training in health comorbidities, psychopharmacology, behavioral health consultations, and various ethical/legal considerations may be necessary. Topics regarding specialized supervision in these areas will be discussed, as it related to appropriate training, consultation, and evaluation of these skills and practices for counselors new to the integrated care model.

Ensuring Beneficial Doctoral Practicum Supervision Amidst Inequity of Experience
Doctoral practicum supervision can be challenging partially due to the inequity of the experience of the group members. By the time doctoral students enter the practicum, some may already be licensed while others may have just begun their post-masters experience. Effective strategies and insights from experiences in group supervision during the doctoral practicum will be discussed. Specific focus will be on providing strategies to diminish the variance between skills level and insight.

Multi-Level, Multi-Modal Training Supervisory Approach for Developing Counselors in Training
Creating an efficient model of supervision that utilizes resources to save time and energy is necessary. Educators supervising both master's students in their practicum/internship experiences, as well as, doctoral student supervisors may become over-worked and overburdened by this responsibility. This presentation shares the lived experiences of participants in a multi-level model and the relationships experienced isomorphically by both the counselors in training and the supervisors in training.

Multicultural Supervision and Competency Across the Clinical Lifespan
Counselors are tasked with the responsibility of remaining culturally competent in an ever-changing counseling field. While there is an inherent implication to pursue continuing multicultural education after graduation and licensure, no formal accountability structure exists for counselors to develop their self-awareness and cultural humility. This session will provide a rationale for longitudinal multicultural education throughout the clinical lifespan, providing a brief model for implementation.

Promoting Safety in the Supervision of Difficult Cultural Experiences
Understanding how to create a safe environment where counselor supervisees feel encouraged to discuss challenging conversations is a hallmark of quality supervision. Supervisees experience barriers, such as not wanting to seem incompetent or feeling ashamed and uncertain of their ability, to share honest feelings. This workshop will discuss the conditions necessary for creating safe spaces to encourage challenging dialogue and brave spaces to promote mutually beneficial supervisory experiences.
