Suicide Education: Toward Addressing a Gap in Counselor Training - P9
With suicide as a continuing concern, educators need to address gaps in counselor training to meet CACREP standards and prepare counselors to serve suicidal clients.

Independence, perseverance, and caretaking among Black women have forged a cultural identity that many refer to as the Strong Black Woman. This presentation will provide an overview of the role of strength modeled by women of African American and Caribbean ethnicity, as well as illustrate its influence on how women perceive and cope with stress.

We've Got Your Six: Understanding Military Culture - P2
The military is a unique culture with its own norms, traditions, and language. The need for mental health services by military personnel and families has increased due to culturally specific changes.

Given the current demand for equal employment of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and reimbursement through TRICARE, understanding military culture will be instrumental for counselors and counselor educators.

The Fertile Void: Planting the Seeds of Counselor Development - P11
This presentation will introduce Taubert's (2010) Gestalt model of counselor development, and facilitate experiential reflections on counselor's perceptions of their development. Three domains of counselor development are proposed: Nascent, Mature, and Accomplished. Each domain has characteristic features. The experiences, feelings, thoughts, and fantasies in each realm are necessary before moving towards greater competency. The domains are not to be oversimplified as this could engender shame in some counselors and self-exaggeration in others.

The Impact of Racial Identity Development on the Supervisory Relationship - P2
During this interactive session the presenters will provide a theoretical framework that depicts the nature of the supervisory alliance when the supervisor and supervisee are of a different race. The Helm's and Carter (1990) White Racial Identity Development Model and the Atkinson et al. (1998) Non-White Identity Development Model will be the template used to depict the different permutations that can occur. The impact that the supervisor/supervisee relationship has on client welfare will be examined and techniques to enhance supervisory alliance will be advanced.

A Developmental Theory for the Clinical Supervision of Counselors Working with Suicidal Clients - P9

A video demonstration of the theory and psychoeducational materials will be included.

Supervision Through a Choice Theory Lens - P7
Supervisees have the need to belong; the need to see themselves as being effective and continually improving their skills; the need to enjoy counseling and the supervision process; and the need to try new things. Supervisors play 4 roles (teacher, counselor, consultant, and evaluator) to help supervisees get those needs met. Supervisors focus on the doing behaviors of the supervisee, with some attention also paid to thinking and feeling behaviors. The supervisor teaches the supervisee how to evaluate their work so they can eventually self-evaluate on their own.

Wellness in Clinical Supervision: The Importance of Self-Regulation Skills - P13

Self-regulation skills can be used in supervision as "Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes" (TLCs). TLCs and self-regulation skills are presented that can be used with supervisees to achieve wellness goals. Examples include exercise, nutrition, biofeedback, and neurofeedback. An evaluation tool used to develop TLC and self-regulation goals and measure progress will be presented.
