A Silent Minority: Working with Male Sexual Assault Survivors - R7
The purpose of this study was to examine how training, perceived competence and workability, and knowledge of referral resources impact how counselors work with male sexual assault survivors. It was hypothesized that counselors, by in large, would have minimal training, low perceived competence and workability, and minimal identifiable resources for heterosexual male assault survivors. The audience will have a chance to examine their own preparedness to work with male sexual assault survivors.

Program objectives include identifying empathic capacity, exploring the impact of clients' stories, recognition of early warning signs, and creation of a personal empathy care plan.

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.

Diversity in Delivery: Processing Assessments in Counselor Training - R5
Assessments are frequently utilized in the counseling of individuals of diverse backgrounds and identities.

Supervision in a Diverse World: Training Doctoral Supervision Interns in a Skills Based and Personal Growth Model - R16
It has long been recognized that a counselor brings more to the therapeutic experience than merely training and skills. He also brings "the self" which includes many unique personal qualities. Some of what a therapist brings is helpful (a genuine concern for the wellbeing of others, an ability to engage a client, acceptance). But far too often, there are characteristics that do not further the therapeutic process, and might even impede it. Therefore, it is imperative that supervisor training programs utilize a model that embraces both counselor skills and personal growth.
