We would like to invite you to participate in a research study titled Wearing Two Hats: Exploring the Intersect of Counselor Educator and Counselor Identity in the Classroom. The study is being conducted by Hennessey Lustica, LMHC, ACS, Ph.D. Student and Alisa Hathaway, Ed.D., LCSW-R from the University of Rochester Warner School if Education.
Your participation would involve participation in a one-hour focus group with other Counselor Educators and Doctoral students to explore the impact of student disclosures in the classroom around past or current traumatic experiences (i.e. suicidal ideation, family of origin, sexual assault, maltreatment, etc.). These disclosures may have come in the form of written work or pedagogical discussion. The researchers are interested in examining the intersection of Counselor Educator and Counselor roles in the classroom. The aim of this study is to collect input to inform best practice in Mental Health and School Counseling training programs. This research study hopes to address questions, gather ideas, and bring together people to discuss these circumstances.
If you are interested in participating in this focus group, please join Hennessey and Alisa during the 2016 NARACES Conference in Syracuse, NY on Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 2:15-3:15 pm. Location will be determined by conference planning committee.
The focus group is entitled: Wearing Two Hats: Exploring the Intersect of Counselor Educator and Counselor Identity in the Classroom. The focus group will be able to accommodate 12 subjects and will be audio recorded.
