2016 NARACES Conference Workshops
Mentoring in Writing and Publication: Hands on Help Toward Publishing
Thursday, September 22, 2016, 10:00AM - 12:00PM
Facilitators: Edina Renfro-Michel, Ph.D., LPC, ACS; Montclair State University; Editor, Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision
Michael Mariska, Ph.D., NCC; Plymouth State University; Associate Editor, Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision
There are few opportunities for one-on-one mentoring in the publication process, yet publishing research is a priority for faculty and doctoral students. Attendees bring a manuscript and meet individually with editorial board members of The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision to discuss the manuscript, and receive specific feedback on the writing and research, including changes needed for publication. In addition the editor will discuss the publication process and answer questions. The intention is to reduce anxiety about publishing manuscripts and increase attendees’ confidence in submitting manuscripts for review and publication. When possible, attendees will be matched with an expert mentor in the topic or research area of the manuscript. Editorial board members will “give back” lessons they have learned as reviewers and editors, especially to participants from underserved or culturally diverse groups, to promote and increase publication of articles that reflect the diversity of NARACES members. In order for this match to occur, attendees are asked to submit a completed manuscript to JCPSNARACES@gmail.com by September 7, 2016.
Join us for this session to:
1. Receive individualized mentoring of a manuscript, increasing the probability of publication.
2. Become informed authors about the cumulative publication process.
3. Learn more about the publication process, including timelines and appropriate communication.

Counselor Education and Identity Based Bullying: Why we should be talking about it
Thursday, September 22, 2016, 9:00AM - 12:00PM
Facilitators: SeriaShia Chatters, Ph.D., LMHC; The Pennsylvania State University
Carlos Zalaquett, Ph.D., LMHC; The Pennsylvania State University
Although targets perpetrators, and bystanders of bullying and identity based bullying, are often seen in the counselor’s office due to the consequences of being involved in situations involving bullying, few counselor education programs explicitly include education or training on the prevention of bullying and individual and group interventions to treat those affected. In this presentation, we will discuss the prevalence of bullying and bias based bullying across the lifespan, individual and group interventions to treat those impacted by bullying, and implications for Counselor Education Programs. Role plays, case studies, and video will also be reviewed.

Counselor Education Beyond the Classroom: Do Immersion Experiences Enhance Cultural Intelligence?

Paola M. Contreras, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist, MA; William James College
Michelle Harris, M.A., LMHC, ATR-BC
Counselor education in cultural responsive practice is enhanced with instruction on diverse healing practices and human rights sensitive theory and requires a multi-modal approach. Panelists will describe how they teach diversity, which includes intensive local and international field experiences. One objective is to develop the student’s knowledge, skills, and attitudes to respond to historically marginalized groups. Another objective is to develop and distinguish the value of both cultural competency and cultural intelligence. Preliminary qualitative findings from arts-based and appreciative inquiry tools, as well as quantitative findings from an ongoing study that measures changes in students’ cultural intelligence will be presented.

The presenters will provide an overview of a constructive approach to supervision, which is an approach that integrates constructivist principles of human growth, change, and development with several theories of psychotherapy. In addition to describing the theoretical underpinnings of the approach, we will also describe the process of constructive supervision, including discussing activities that can be used to facilitate supervisee critical self-reflection and assessment from a constructive perspective. Cases will also be presented that illustrate the effectiveness of this approach with supervisees from various settings. Time will be allotted for discussion of the cases along with sharing of participants’ experiences.

Enacting Narrative Pedagogy: Creative Applications in Counselor Education
Thursday, September 22, 2016 1:00- 4:00 pm
Nicole R. Hill, PhD., Professor, Syracuse University
Tracy Stinchfield, Associate Professor, Immaculata University
Torey Portrie-Bethke, Core Faculty, Walden University
Michael Mariska, Assistant Professor, Plymouth State University
Narrative pedagogy is an engaged, reflective, and transformational approach for learning that enhances student’s critical thinking and that bridges the gap from didactic learning to clinical practice. Channeling the lived experiences of students in the classroom, the emotional connection to narrative interventions, and the reflective nature of inquiry, narrative pedagogy provides an effective and intentional approach in counselor education. This pre-conference will be interactive and experiential with specific classroom examples on the use of multiple narrative modalities, including film, visual journaling, fictional and autobiographic literature, metaphor, photovoice, and music. Attendees at the pre-conference will receive concrete examples of how to engage in these narrative pedagogical approaches within master’s level counseling courses, and they will also have the opportunity to collaboratively explore how elements could be incorporated into their current courses. The impact of narrative pedagogy on student learning outcomes will also be examined and highlighted.
