A Model of Credibility and Consistency in Qualitative Assessments for Counselor Education and Practice
The purpose of the presentation is to propose a model for use in reviewing, conducting, and documenting qualitative assessments in counseling research and practice. By establishing evidence supporting qualitative assessments and processes, counselor educators and counselors can begin to build a record of support. This new evidence can serve counselors in the selection, administration, and documentation of qualitative assessment to demonstrate the efficacy of these processes in counseling.

Supervision as a Developmental Relationship: Promoting Self-Efficacy, Autonomy & Leadership
Building a trusting relationship with one’s supervisees is an important role of supervision.

This workshop is designed to help supervisors better identify and work through supervisee confidence and competence issues without jeopardizing the supervisor-supervisee relationship. Practical strategies to overcome these challenges will be discussed.

Are We as “Woke” as We Think We Are: Exploring Counselor Education’s Multicultural Competence
Counselor Education programs stress the importance of multicultural competence. Historically, advocacy for the wellness and lived experiences of our society’s most marginalized populations has been a key part of a strong professional counselor identity. But how self-aware and self-challenging are counselor educators around structural inequities in the profession—
how “woke” are we? This question serves as the cornerstone for what is a layered and necessary collaborative experience.

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.

The Risk of Vicarious Traumatization in African-American Counselors
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.

Activism at Home: Examining and Addressing Incidents of Microaggressions Within Counseling Programs
One might assume that the counselor training environment would be relatively free from microaggressions due to CACREP requirements for Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies within and throughout programs; however, counseling programs are not immune from the impact of systemic oppression. In hopes of combatting this issue, the presenters will provide information from a study to explore the experiences of microaggressions in CACREP-accredited counseling programs.

Clinical Supervision: Office Versus In-Home
A counselor's ability to obtain knowledge and skills depends heavily on the effectiveness of clinical supervision. Efficient supervision results in improved client outcomes, increased professional development, and enhanced quality of life for a supervisee. As such, the paucity of literature related to in-home counseling (in particular, the supervision of in-home counselors) identifies the need to further discuss the topic. During this 50-minute roundtable, clinical supervision strategies will be discussed.

The Use of Mindfulness Training to Support Counselor Development
Mindfulness practice has been shown to help a range of mental health issues. Such practice is a natural fit in the training of new counselors. According to the Integrated Developmental Model, training counselors must develop across a range of constructs, including in their self-other awareness, in order to become successful therapists. Mindfulness can support this awareness, and faculty can use such training in courses or during student experiential training to aid in their development.

Sharing challenges, successes, and lessons learned along the way can better inform us all as we develop in the field of counselor education.
