Great Expectations: Doctoral Student Mothers in Counselor Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation overviews a phenomenological study of the experiences of ten female, counselor education, doctoral students who were also mothers. The interviews produced the over-arching theme of expectations with three central themes: self (including guilt and professional goals); counselor education (including faculty response and parallels between parenting and the profession); and society (including gender roles and messages about children as a barrier to degree completion). Implications for future research and doctoral program policy are presented.
