CANCELLED - The Socialization Practices Used by Low-income Urban Black Transient Families to Help Their Children Acculturate

Through acculturation, these families, in order to establish a socially acceptable pattern of behavior, often experience conflict when trying to find a balance between the dominant culture and their own culture. Implications for school counselors will be provided.

Ethics and power inventories were given to a sample of counselors. Perceptions of supervisors' adherence to ethical principles were significantly related to the existence of Referent Power within supervision. Discussion will focus on the development of Referent Power, counselor perceptions in supervision, and ethical principles in supervision research.

Making Meaning of Sibling Abuse: A Phenomenological Study of School Counselors' Shared Attitudes and Beliefs
Research illustrates that nearly one half of all children experience a form of sibling abuse during childhood. Sibling abuse is often hidden or excused as sibling rivalry, yet can have lasting long-term psychological effects. In this presentation key findings from a recent phenomenological study with school counselors will be shared. These findings can help counselor educators advance their understanding of sibling abuse and develop advocacy and prevention strategies to utilize in the instruction of counselors-in-training and their work with children and families.

Further, such activities can both connect students with each other in the classroom as well as with their clients in the field. An overview of experiential learning will be presented along with sample exercises proven effective in clinical courses. Participants will gain a toolbox of experiential activities and are encouraged to share their own favorites.

The Professional Will: A Diverse Issue with Ethical Implications
Professional wills have been ignored in counseling literature. Specifically, this presentation will focus on what happens to records following the death or incapacitation of the counselor. That is, who has access to the counselor's records? In the absence of a professional will, the answer to the above question is debatable, often in court. Many persons representing diverse backgrounds ignore this topic (professional will) and are unaware of its importance, ethically and legally. Case studies will be discussed. Handouts (including a model of a professional will) will be provided.
