A Picture Is Worth a 1,000 Words: Graphics to Explain ICD-10
The art of mental/nervous diagnosis is more than just collecting symptoms and providing the insurance company with an ICD-10 number. 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.

Research has grown exponentially on the areas of moral distress and moral injury in the past decade. Now recognized as an issue separate and distinct from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), these forms of moral harm nonetheless remain poorly defined, with overlap between terms used by specific professions (i.e. nursing and counseling).

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.

How Do Counselor Educators Wellness Levels Impact Wellness Promotion for Counselor-in-training

Counselor educators are responsible for educating, modeling, and evaluating wellness in future counselors. The purpose of this presentation is to explore the relationship between wellness levels and wellness promotion behaviors in counselor educators.

It is well-documented that substance use is often a coping mechanism for survivors of childhood traumas including child sexual abuse (CSA; Calmes, 2013).

Prevalence, assessment, treatment, and research on substance use among college students who survived CSA will be explored using case examples and discussion.

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.

Furthermore, counselors may not be aware of the blind spots they have towards clients who live and experience poverty and inequity.

The Intersection Between Deeply Held Beliefs and Professional Values: Bridging the Gap
Counselor Educators are sometimes faced with trainees whose deeply held beliefs conflict with the profession’s values. This intersection is both troubling for the trainee, who must find a way to rectify deeply held beliefs and values, and the counselor educator who must weigh the rights of the trainee with the good of the client. This session will address how one CACREP accredited program assists trainees through a semester-long process of examining personal values/beliefs.
