Integrating Research and Counselor Identity: A Mixed and Multiple Methods Primer
Mixed and multiple methods research (MMR) is the focus of this session, which highlights how problem-solving skills that are inherent in counselor identity align with an integrated MMR approach. Reflexivity is introduced as the active, foundational element for avoiding a "methods-centric" approach and for centering the research problem, embracing complexity, and enhancing credibility of evidence. Examples of decision-making processes and design elements of MMR will be discussed.

ACES INFORM Plenary Session - Socially Constructing the Role of Qualitative Research in Counselor Education, Supervision, and Counseling: A Call for Dialogue
In September 1989, then editor of Counselor Education and Supervision, Duane Brown, stated “we must accord the same status to research that chronicles the human experience using qualitative methodology that we do to the empirical research we have grown accustomed to seeing published in our journals.” Today I ask the question “Just how well have we accorded the same status to qualitative research in journals serving as outlets for our knowledge products?”  I will explore possible answers and directions for the future of qualitative research in counselor education and supervision.

Critical Thinking: A Lost Art in Case Conceptualization? - R3
Supervisors frequently report students' inability to conceptualize client issues from a theoretical perspective, and to articulate how that helped to inform the client's treatment plan. Students seem to have the pieces, but lack the ability to bridge them into conceptualization. What else besides practice integrating knowledge was missing? The answer seemed to be that students were not thinking critically. According to the classical philosophers, to know others we must first know ourselves (Levy, 1997). Discussion will prompt strategies to promote critical thought.

Parental Non-verbal Conflict: An Exploration of Children's Lived Experiences - P12
Children's interpretation of parental conflict determines the child's emotional response to the conflict.
