The Concept Of Role Models In Life Design, William C. Briddick, Hande Briddick Mar 2019

The Concept Of Role Models In Life Design, William C. Briddick, Hande Briddick

William Briddick

The 21st century brings challenges for advancing career counseling and vocational psychology on a global level. The globalization of career work called for innovations in theory as well as interventions, techniques, and concepts. The emergence of life design with its emphasis on self-making, identity shaping and career-construction provides not only useful theory, intervention and technique but the powerful theoretical concept of role models. Career construction counseling and the Career Story Interview provide a context for exploration of the influence of role models on the construction of both self and career. The efficiency and comprehensive nature of the career construction process ...

Evaluation Of A Brief, School-Based Bullying Bystander Intervention For Elementary School Students, Aida Midgett, Diana Doumas, Rhiannon Trull

Diana M. Doumas

This study evaluated a brief, bystander bullying intervention for elementary school students. Students in the intervention group reported an increase in knowledge and confidence to act as “defenders.” Students in the intervention group also reported an increase in self-esteem relative to the control group, although this finding was limited to sixth-grade students. The study found no group differences in sense of school belonging. This article discusses implications for school counselors.

Circles Presentation.Pdf, Brandie M. Oliver

Brandie M. Oliver

This presentation will share the results of two pilot studies using Circles. Circles give people an opportunity to speak and listen to one another in an atmosphere of safety and equality. Circles were used to build and strengthen relationships as well as deliver academic content and increase social/emotional learning principles. One pilot study focused on infusing children’s literature into Circle lessons in a 3rd grade classroom and the second pilot study targeted academic motivation and lack of connectedness for high school students in 9th and 11th grade.
 


Obstacles To Graduation: A Look At Poverty’S Effect On Academic Work, Julia M. Bernard, Maike Klein Oct 2017

Obstacles To Graduation: A Look At Poverty’S Effect On Academic Work, Julia M. Bernard, Maike Klein

Julia M. Bernard

Our presentation was aimed at providing a thorough overview of concepts that interfere with an adolescent’s ability to stay in school and graduate. Additionally, the presentation addressed what other factors of poverty, such as risk-taking behaviors (e.g., marijuana use, binge drinking, or sexual activity), might carry over into college life and affect a student’s academic career. Variables connected to family community, family responsibilities, and adolescents’ self-esteem were described as well. Finally, the presentation discussed factors that play into a student’s willingness to seek out college campus resources for support. With this paper, we hope to outline ...


School Counselor Competency And Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, And Questioning (Lgbtq) Youth, Rebekah J. Byrd, Danica Hays Oct 2017

School Counselor Competency And Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, And Questioning (Lgbtq) Youth, Rebekah J. Byrd, Danica Hays

Rebekah J. Byrd

Much research has been dedicated to the difficulties LGBTQ individuals face. Further, school counselors have been challenged to assist LGBTQ individuals in the school setting. Being aware of the specific issues and being educated about specific ways to assist these individuals enable school counselors to be more effective clinicians (DePaul, Walsh, & Dam, 2009). This article will address three components of counselor preparation and affirmative school counseling interventions: counselor self-awareness, LGBTQ sexual identity development, and LGBTQ-affirmative school climate. For each component, an activity is presented to assist professional school counselors become more LGBTQ-affirmative.


Globalization And Counseling: Professional Issues For Counselors, Sonya Lorelle, Rebekah J. Byrd, Stephanie Crockett Oct 2017

Globalization And Counseling: Professional Issues For Counselors, Sonya Lorelle, Rebekah J. Byrd, Stephanie Crockett

Rebekah J. Byrd

Scholars have examined globalization for many years in terms of its impact on individuals, but it remains a concept not often discussed in the counseling literature (Paredes et al., 2008). As counseling transforms from a Western-based practice to a global phenomenon, it is important to understand counseling within an international context. In this article, the ways in which the process of globalization are currently impacting the field of counseling, implications and future research directions are examined.


Evaluating A Safe Space Training For Professional School Counselors And Trainees Using A Randomized Control Group Design, Rebekah J. Byrd, Danica Hays Oct 2017

Evaluating A Safe Space Training For Professional School Counselors And Trainees Using A Randomized Control Group Design, Rebekah J. Byrd, Danica Hays

Rebekah J. Byrd

School counselors need to advocate and act as an ally for all students. Safe Space, a training designed to facilitate competency for working with and serving LGBTQ youth (i.e., LGBTQ competency), has received increased attention in the field of school counseling. However, limited empirical support exists for training interventions such as Safe Space, with only one study to date examining its effectiveness for graduate psychology students (see Finkel, Storaasli, Bandele, & Schaefer, 2003). This study used a randomized pretest-posttest control group design to evaluate and examine the impact of Safe Space training on competency levels of a sample of school ...

Cybercounseling: Legal And Ethical Considerations, Megan Hrivnak, Don Coble, Rebekah Byrd

Rebekah J. Byrd

With the advent of computer systems, our lives have become increasingly digitized. Once it took months for a letter to travel overseas, now a few clicks can pull up a videoconference from one’s home. Many face-to-face interactions are being supplemented with their digital counterparts. Counseling is no exception. This paper will define cybercounseling, review new ethical guidelines and concerns, contrast benefits and challenges, and provide some recommendations for those interested in exploring counseling’s online counterpart.


Counseling Masters Student’S Personal Growth Group Experience, Cheryl Neale-Mcfall, Rebekah J. Byrd Oct 2017

Counseling Masters Student’S Personal Growth Group Experience, Cheryl Neale-Mcfall, Rebekah J. Byrd

Rebekah J. Byrd

Participating in and experiencing a counseling growth group is a process that is required in all CACREP-accredited counseling programs. Existent literature suggests that multiple variables may impact participants’ learning in growth groups, and call into question the effectiveness of such groups. Overall, the majority of the research (Barnette, 1989; Hogg & Deffenbacher, 1988; Yalom & Leszcz, 2005) implies that growth groups have the potential to produce meaningful and positive outcomes; however, there are gaps in the literature that do not address the direct experiences of individuals in growth group (Berman & Zimpfer, 1980; Goodrich, 2008). This article presents research that utilized phenomenological methodology to explore the experiences of 13 counseling maters’ students who participated in a growth group as part of their ...


Adolescent Non-Suidical Self-Injury: Analysis Of The Youth Risk Behavior Survey, Kelly Emelianchik-Key, Rebekah J. Byrd, Amanda C. La Guardia Oct 2017

Adolescent Non-Suidical Self-Injury: Analysis Of The Youth Risk Behavior Survey, Kelly Emelianchik-Key, Rebekah J. Byrd, Amanda C. La Guardia

Rebekah J. Byrd

Self-injury is a significant issue with a variety of psychological, social, legal and ethical consequences and implications (Froeschle & Moyer, 2004; McAllister, 2003; Nock & Mendes, 2008; White Kress, Drouhard, & Costin, 2006). Self-injurious behavior is commonly associated with the cutting, bruising or burning of the skin. It also can include trichotillomania, interfering with wound healing and extreme nail biting (Klonsky & Olino, 2008; Zila & Kiselica, 2001). In assessing severity, it is important to note that self-inflicted wounds typically do not require any medical attention, as those who engage in self-injury will usually care for any open wounds in order to prevent infection (Walsh, 2006). The typical duration of a self-injurious act is usually less than 30 minutes, resulting in immediate relief from the emotional turmoil precipitating the behavior (Alderman, 1997; Gratz, 2007). It is difficult to estimate the prevalence of self-injury for many reasons. Nock (2009) noted that reports indicating increased estimates in this behavior derive from “anecdotal reports and estimates from small cross-sectional studies” (p. 81). Given the many ethical and legal ramifications involved in working with clients that self-injure, it is important to understand how self-injury typically manifests itself, how it affects differing populations based on gender and cultural differences, and the level ...

Exploring Undergraduate Black Womyn S Motivations For Engaging In Sister Circle Organizations.Pdf, Natasha Croom, Cameron Beatty, Lorraine D. Acker, Malika Buter

Cameron C. Beatty

The purpose of this critical qualitative inquiry was to explore what motivated undergraduate Black
womyn (UBW) to engage in Sister Circle- type student organizationsor groups that center race
and gender. Using a critical race feminist theoretical lens, data were collected through a combination
of one-on-one interviews and focus groups. Through this project, we found that participants were
motivated to engage in sister circleorganizations because they were interested in observing how
Black womyn co-existed in community, finding role models who may have had similar experiences

Behavioral Disorders: A Nutritional Checklist For The Educational Practitioner, Ronald F. Bobner, Louisa M. Marchionda, Carolyn Ridenour, Isadore Newman, Mary J. Beaubien Apr 2017

Behavioral Disorders: A Nutritional Checklist For The Educational Practitioner, Ronald F. Bobner, Louisa M. Marchionda, Carolyn Ridenour, Isadore Newman, Mary J. Beaubien

Carolyn S. Ridenour

Millions of dollars are spent annually on special educational programs for children whose severe behavior disorders prevent them from participating in the regular school setting despite average or above average intellectual capacity. A growing body of research indicates that some of these behavior disorders are related to nutritional problems. (Pfeiffer and Iliev 1972; Kittler 1973; Mayron 1979; and Buckley 1977), and many clinicians support the view that no matter what the etiology of behavioral disorders, nutritional programs can improve the baseline data on medical, social and intellectual achievement, and on personality measures (Palmer 1978). Our purpose here is to present ...

Prepare, Hire, And Retain: The Lost Link Between Graduate Preparation And Retention Of Professionals In Student Affairs, Nasser A. Razek, Jamie Mccall, Ellie Mulherin

Nasser Razek

Coming from multiple backgrounds, new professionals in student affairs, exhibit a high rate of attrition ranging between 50% and 60% in the first five years. The challenges facing the professionals during their first job includes: forming relationships, seeking mentorship in the new work environment, and balancing work-life responsibilities.

This paper builds on factual data about new professional retention rates. Establishing that intentional and realistic preparation approaches are one way to reduce attrition, the relationship between the graduate preparation programs and professionals’ job satisfaction in their first position cannot be ignored.

Teachers Or Psychologists : Who Should Facilitate Depression Prevention Programs In Schools?, Melanie S. Wahl, Jill L. Adelson, Margarete A. Patak, Patrick Possel, Martin Hautzinger

Patrick Pössel

The current study evaluates a depression prevention program for adolescents led by psychologists vs. teachers in comparison to a control. The universal school-based prevention program has shown its efficacy in several studies when implemented by psychologists. The current study compares the effects of the program as implemented by teachers versus that implemented by psychologists under real-life conditions. A total of 646 vocational track 8th grade students from Germany participated either in a universal prevention program, led by teachers (n = 207) or psychologists (n = 213), or a teaching-as-usual control condition (n = 226). The design includes baseline, post-intervention, and follow-up (at 6 ...

Determinants Of Intent To Transfer Among Black Male Community College Students_ A Multinomial%2c Multi-Level Investigation Of Student Engagement .Pdf, J. Luke Wood, Phd, Robert T. Palmer Phd

Robert T. Palmer, PhD

Background/Context. Transfer is a core function of community colleges; this is a critical point given that these institutions serve as the primary pathway into postsecondary educa- tion for Black men. However, too few Black men identify transfer as a primary goal and/or eventually transfer to a 4-year college or university.

Purpose: Using Nora and Rendón’s (1990) research on transfer predisposition as a theoreti- cal guide, this study investigated determinants of Black male community college students’ pre- disposition to transfer from a community college to a 4-year university. This research sought to determine whether student-level and institutional-level ...


Nurturing Compassion Development Among College Students: A Longitudinal Study, Thomas G. Plante, Katherine Halman Aug 2016

Nurturing Compassion Development Among College Students: A Longitudinal Study, Thomas G. Plante, Katherine Halman

Thomas G Plante PhD, ABPP

Little research exists on the development of compassion among college undergraduates. This study tracks changes in compassion and identifies factors associated with these changes over the course of undergraduate students’ college careers, from the time of admittance to the time of graduation. Compassion levels assessed at the point of college entrance accounted for 25% of the variance in compassion at the time of graduation. These findings provided evidence for the notion that compassion can continue to be cultivated once in college. Predictors such as diversity training, the frequency of religious service attendance, participation in community-based service-learning, political identification, and feeling ...
