Studentinnen, Student*Innen, Or Student_Innen: How Six German Universities Are Constructing Gender Equitable Language And Increasing Female Linguistic And Visual Representation, Julia Goncalves Apr 2020

Studentinnen, Student*Innen, Or Student_Innen: How Six German Universities Are Constructing Gender Equitable Language And Increasing Female Linguistic And Visual Representation, Julia Goncalves

Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures Publications and Other Works

The German language has traditionally utilized generic masculine forms to refer to groups with mixed genders; however, this creates a skewed perception of a group’s gender representation. Lann Hornscheidt and the AG Feminist Language Action published a brochure at Humboldt University that details a plethora of gender neutral and gender inclusive phrases to replace the generic masculine, and this publication sparked a backlash from conservative media, stating that the brochure and universities seek to undermine the grammar of the German language. This paper seeks to describe, evaluate, and establish criteria for adequate linguistic and visual representation for both females ...


A Central Research Goal In The Cognitive Sciences Has Been To Understand The Processes That Underlie Selective Attention, Or The Ability To Focus On Goal-Relevant Information. Two Opposing Theories Have Been Proposed In An Effort To Explain How Selective Attention Emerges: One Suggests That Attention Improves Continuously Over Time, Whereas The Other Proposes That Attention Improves At A Discrete Time Point. While Outcome-Based Data (E.G., Reaction Time) Have Successfully Provided Evidence For Both Accounts, There Has Been No Empirical Evidence To Differentiate Them. In This Study, We Used Mouse-Tracking In A Flanker Task That Provided Time Sensitive Measures Associated With Selective Attention. Specifically, We Recorded The Path Of Realtime Movement Trajectories To Assess Characteristics Of Continuous And Discrete Shifts In Selective Attention. Our Results Strongly Suggested That Selective Attention Increased Gradually Over Time, As Opposed To At A Discrete Point, Thus Providing Support For A Continuous Account Of Selective Attention., Cody A.

A central research goal in the cognitive sciences has been to understand the processes that underlie selective attention, or the ability to focus on goal-relevant information. Two opposing theories have been proposed in an effort to explain how selective attention emerges: one suggests that attention improves continuously over time, whereas the other proposes that attention improves at a discrete time point. While outcome-based data (e.g., reaction time) have successfully provided evidence for both accounts, there has been no empirical evidence to differentiate them. In this study, we used mouse-tracking in a flanker task that provided time sensitive measures associated ...

A Phenomenological Investigation Of Doctoral Students’ Gatekeeping Experiences, Shawna M. Corley, Jessica Lloyd-Hazlett, Hope Schuermann, Noel Blessing

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

Counselor education doctoral students serve as gatekeepers simultaneous to their own training and evaluation. We used transcendental phenomenology to examine the gatekeeping experiences of 15 doctoral students at three programmatic levels. Findings and implications related to two primary themes, (a) precarious positions and power and (b) developing a gatekeeper identity, are discussed.


Exploring School Counselors’ Preparation To Address Disproportionality Of African American Students In Special Education, E Mackenzie Shell Jan 2020

Exploring School Counselors’ Preparation To Address Disproportionality Of African American Students In Special Education, E Mackenzie Shell

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

While school counselors work with students in special education, little research describes their work with African American students in or at risk of special education or the phenomenon of disproportionality of African American students in special education. This phenomenological study explored the experiences and perceptions of eight high school counselors with African American students in special education and disproportionality. The researcher identified three themes: (a) Dis-Regard, (b) separate worlds and (c) professional knowledge. Intentional strategies to introduce counselors to the concept of disproportionality and its antecedents may mitigate processes that potentially lead to overrepresentation of African Americans in special education.

Critical Knowledge, Points Of Confusion, And Training Recommendations For Client Referrals, Jessica Lloyd-Hazlett, Samantha Airhart-Larraga, Lucy L. Purgason Jan 2020

Critical Knowledge, Points Of Confusion, And Training Recommendations For Client Referrals, Jessica Lloyd-Hazlett, Samantha Airhart-Larraga, Lucy L. Purgason

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

The intersection of personal and professional values in relation to client referrals may cause uncertainty and confusion among counseling students. Current literature on this topic demonstrates a lack of agreement exists among student counselors about how to navigate the referral process, especially as it relates to making decisions about when to refer (Author, 2017). This content analysis examines what student counselors (N=104) perceive as critical areas of knowledge, points of confusion, and suggestions for training on ethical referrals. Emergent themes and implications for counselor education and future research are discussed.

Factors Influencing Publication Rates Among Counselor Educators, Sean Newhart, Patrick R. Mullen, Ashley J. Blount, W. Bryce Hagedorn

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

Factors influencing publication rates were examined among a simple random sample of 257 counselor educators. The factors of: a) gender, b) experience as a counselor educator, c) faculty rank, and d) working in a research institution predicted peer-reviewed publication rates in the counselor educator sample, with a large effect size. Additional results, limitations of the investigation, areas for future research, and implications for counselor educators are discussed.


Integration Of Shame Resilience Theory And The Discrimination Model In Supervision, William B. Lane Jr. Jan 2020

Integration Of Shame Resilience Theory And The Discrimination Model In Supervision, William B. Lane Jr.

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

Shame is a destructive feeling if unaddressed leads to difficulty in the supervisory hour. A supervisorial model to address shame within supervision could guide supervisors on how to work with and diffuse the symptoms and defense mechanisms of shame. Shame Resilience Theory (SRT) and the Discrimination Model (DM) of supervision have been synthesized within this conceptual article to create the Shame Resilience Discrimination Model (SRDM) which is designed to help supervisees work through shame. Examples of how to use the model and a case example have been provided. The SRDM has been displayed in a table at the end of ...


Reflective Practice: Counseling Students’ Letters To Their Younger Selves In Practicum, Daniel A. Decino, Phillip L. Waalkes, Joel Givens Jan 2020

Reflective Practice: Counseling Students’ Letters To Their Younger Selves In Practicum, Daniel A. Decino, Phillip L. Waalkes, Joel Givens

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

In this reflective narrative study, we explored the stories of counselors-in-training at the end of their practicum courses. Thirty-six counselors-in-training (N= 36) engaged in reflective practice and wrote letters to their younger selves about their practicum experiences. Using a narrative-focused data analysis process, we created a thematic structure to retell the grand narrative of participants' practicum training experiences. Discussion and implications of this letter writing activity are offered to help understand how counselor educators can use reflective practices in their training courses.

Racial Mislabeling In Multiracial Individuals: Implications For Professional Counseling And Education, C. Peeper Mcdonald, Catharina Y. Chang Ph.D., Caroline O'Hara, Kan Guvensel, Lindy Parker

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

With the extreme growth of people who identify as Biracial or Multiracial, it is evident that their unique racial experiences need to be better understood, especially within the field of professional counseling to underscore competent practice (Charmaraman, Woo, Quach, & Erkut, 2014; Jackson, Yoo, Guevarra & Harrington, 2012; Tran, Miyake, Martinez-Morales, & Csizmadia, 2016). As a result, the researchers in this study investigated the lived experiences of racial mislabeling for Multiracial individuals. The participants of this study were fourteen (n=14) individuals who identified as Multiracial and endorsed experiencing the specific form of racial invalidation entitled racial mislabeling. Data were collected through individual, semi-structured interviews. The data ...


A Duoethnographic Exploration Of Two Counselor Educators’ Growth In Assessment In Teaching, Phillip L. Waalkes Dr., Daniel A. Decino Dr. Jan 2020

A Duoethnographic Exploration Of Two Counselor Educators’ Growth In Assessment In Teaching, Phillip L. Waalkes Dr., Daniel A. Decino Dr.

Teaching and Supervision in Counseling

Assessment in teaching is a challenge for many beginning counselor educators. Although many researchers have discussed the importance of student learning outcomes, few have explored counselor educators’ experiences using assessment in their courses. In this duoethnographic inquiry, we engaged in a critical and reflective dialogue of our experiences with assessment. We aimed to acknowledge our biases, identities, and emotions related to assessment in transformative ways. For [researcher 1], our dialogue helped me gain theoretical and emotional perspective on assessment and inspired specific changes to my assessment practices including focusing more on process-based, low stakes assessment, developing clearer learning goals, and ...


Redefining What It Means To Be Black, James Williams Jan 2020

Redefining What It Means To Be Black, James Williams

Black Issues Conference

Identity crisis plagued my psychological and physical experience when I was raised in Fall River, MA and Wilson, NC. Labels gained significance as I attempted to understand religion, policy, poverty, violence, and race in my household. I learned to believe in a white Jesus, but to fear the white man as well as my fellow black brothers. I was conflicted by the power of labels, and the role my black inferiority played in this world dominated by manmade labels. All labels come from finite beings who tend to inject their opinions and beliefs from a fear-based position. This perspective tends ...

WHY HAVEN'T LIBRARY SYSTEM and information database designers included as many user-friendly features as Amazon and Google? This question, posed at the recent annual meeting of the American Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIST), was answered by UCLA professor Marcia Bates, who said that from 20 years of research we know what should be included, but we've never had the money to implement fancy search features. Now, we have a lot of catching up to do.

Bridging The Divide Between Gen. X And Millennials, Floyd Miley Nov 2019

Bridging The Divide Between Gen. X And Millennials, Floyd Miley

Black Issues Conference

The problems that plague the Black community are a multi-dimensional phenomenon deeply rooted in systemic racism. For 400 years, the Black experience in America has been one of subjugation, segregation, lynching, discrimination and racism. The historic Civil Rights Movement changed legislation, but it didn’t change racist attitudes or institutions.

During Donald Trump’s presidency, America has witnessed a resurgence of White supremacists’ attitudes, beliefs, values and practices towards people of color, especially Blacks. His administration supports the social, political, criminal justice and economic institutions that negatively affect the Black community. As a result, Blacks have the highest incarceration rate ...

This presentation will highlight the structure of a course specifically for minority individuals. It will also provide some examples of how two instructors use contemporary readings such as, “Minority Leader: How to Lead From the Outside and ...

Destined For Dissonance: Unpacking The Duality Of Being Black And Christian, Christie D. Banks, Matthew K. Best, Marcus Jones

Black Issues Conference

Abstract: We know that the Trans- Atlantic Slave Trade is how our African ancestors became involved with Christianity, and for many this involvement was a forced tactic of bondage. Does the disconnectedness from the horrors and hypocrisy of the slave trade make you question your faith? Or has the Black Church and its role in your community been a pillar in walking out your faith? Is the injustice that brought our people to America a part of our complex Christian history? Or is being Black and Christian an oxymoron? Du Bois’ The Souls of Black Folk is as relevant a ...
