How to Get Published

Glenn Lambie, Ph.D.
Dodie Limberg, Ph.D.

Key Ballroom 1

Getting published can be a vulnerable and confusing process. It is much more than having an idea and writing about it. In this half day preconference workshop, we will discuss the steps of the publication process and strategies to increase acceptance rates. Experienced authors and editorial board members will discuss what they are looking for when reviewing manuscripts and common errors authors make. Participants will have an opportunity to receive feedback on their work and practical resources to use after the workshop.


Preconference 2 (8:30am - 11:30am)

Introduction to Qualitative Research Design: Exploring question development, methodological fit, and action steps.

Jennifer Preston Ph.D., NCC, LPC

Key Ballroom 2

Qualitative research is particularly relevant when exploring the experiences of underrepresented populations in counseling literature. However, novice qualitative researchers are often overwhelmed by the range and complexity of qualitative methods. In this workshop, designed for all novice qualitative practitioners who wish to explore new research methodologies, we will focus on the principles of research question development, ensuring methodological fit, and end with individual action steps that can be implemented for a dissertation, or other research project.

Preconference 3 (8:30am - 11:30am) - CANCELED

DSM-5-TR: What Counselor Educators and Supervisors Need to Know

 K. Dayle Jones, Ph.D., LMHC

Key Ballroom 3

The publication of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-5-TR) in March 2022 comes 9 years after the publication of DSM-5. This revision reflects the substantive scientific advances that have been made in the years since the publication of DSM-5. This presentation will provide an overview of the DSM-5-TR revisions, including general information and development, changes in the new edition, and updated disorders. Some of the most significant revisions covered in this presentation include prolonged grief disorder, suicidal behavior and nonsuicidal self-injury, changes to autism spectrum disorder, changes in severity specifiers for manic episodes, the addition of course specifiers to adjustment disorder, and more.

Women in Counselor Education: Navigating Pandemic and Post-Pandemic Academia|

Mary A. Hermann, J.D., Ph.D., LPC, NCC, CSC
Amanda M. St. Germain-Sehr, M.Ed., M.A., LPC, BC-MT
Noelle R. St. Germain-Sehr, Ph.D., LPC-S, NCC, BC-TMH, ACMHP

Key Ballroom 4

Women professors often struggle to manage work and life responsibilities in our culture of increasing work hours, inequitable second shift responsibilities, gendered workplace norms, and continued discrimination. The COVID-19 pandemic has created additional challenges. This session will provide women counselor educators with an opportunity to discuss these issues. Strategies for managing challenges and advocacy activities that support women’s success in academia will be highlighted.




Preconference 5 (8:30am - 4:00pm)

Innovative Supervision Approaches to Promote Supervisee Wellness

Ryan M. Cook, Ph.D., LPC, ACS
Heather J. Fye, Ph.D., NCC, LPC

Key Ballroom 5

In this workshop, presenters will address current challenges faced by the counseling profession. Attendees will learn innovative supervision skills, such as supervisor humility and trauma informed supervision, to increase supervisee wellness. Case studies, experiential activities, and handouts will be provided for attendees to immediately integrate these skills into their supervision practices.

Preconference 6 (8:30am - 4:00pm)

Having Meaningful Difficult Dialogues: Counselors Intentionally Filling in the Gaps!

Nevin Heard, Ph.D.
Yvette Saliba-El-Habre, Ph.D.

S. Kent Butler, Ph.D

Key Ballroom 8

The presenters use their personal stories to speak the truth about the effects of privilege on their mental wellness and resolve while sharing best practices for removing culturally biased barriers. Described as authentic and real, “RAW: *Realism * Authenticity * Wisdom” was developed as a presentation during a moment of intense reflection on life today and an even deeper meditation related to the state of the world. RAW highlights how clinicians can successfully balance counseling and self-care with social justice advocacy. This presentation provides counselors with insights, wisdom, and encouragement on how to intentionally get into “good trouble” as Anti-Racist co-conspirators fighting against injustices on a global scale and working proactively on behalf of clients in their lives.


Half-Day: Afternoon

Preconference 7 (1:00pm - 4:00pm)

Ethical Complexity in Clinical Practice and Supervision: A Relational Perspective

Stanley Hoover, Ph.D., LPC
DeVon Mills, Ph.D., LPC

Key Ballroom 1

Ethical practice in counseling is more than adherence to particular standards of professional conduct. Simply abiding by the ethical codes of professional associations and licensing boards does little to foster a commitment to aspirational ethics in counseling and supervision. This workshop will offer a more robust vision for professional competence rooted in relational theories of counseling that provide additional sources of guidance for counselors to consider when resolving complex ethical dilemmas. 


Preconference 8 (1:00pm - 4:00pm)

The Intersection of School Counseling Programs and the School Counseling Landscape

Anita Young, Ph.D.
Ileana Gonzalez

Key Ballroom 2

The current school counseling landscape is uniquely challenged due to systemic educational and societal barriers, racial inequities, educational censorship, and school counselor shortages that are exacerbated because of the dueling global pandemic impact and sociopolitical climate. Thus, there is a critical need to further examine the role and identity of school counselors and the future of the school counseling profession. This preconference session seeks to create a dialog about counselor education programs through five overarching areas: 1) evaluating school counseling program effectiveness, 2) infusing anti-racist training throughout the curriculum, 3) developing leaders and advocates in the profession, 4) intersecting training with practice, and 5) examining school counseling recruitment strategies.


Preconference 9 (1:00pm - 4:00pm)

Let’s Evaluate! Program Evaluation and Logic Models for Grant Proposals

Jennifer D. Deaton, Ph.D., LCMHC
Carrie Wachter Morris, Ph.D.

Key Ballroom 3

Program evaluation is a systematic method to evaluate effectiveness, efficiency, and impact of programmatic and project activities (CDC, 2021). More importantly, program evaluation is a critical part of successful grant proposals. Specifically, utilization-focused program evaluation centers on the utility of the evaluation to inform, explain, and implement key findings back into the project (Patton, 2013). This session will take a deeper dive into utilization-focused program evaluation, logic models, and evaluation utility necessary for grant writing. This hands-on session will enable attendees to practice and appraise program evaluation logic models to support successful grant writing.

Preconference 10 (1:00pm - 4:00pm)

Engaging Online Learners: Innovative Methods for Online Counselor Educators

Summer Kuba Ph.D., EdS, MSW
Ellen Chance Ph,D.
Shannan Shiderly Ph.D.

Nicole Holby Ph.D.

Key Ballroom 4

As counselor educators strive to incorporate cutting edge pedagogical approaches within their online counseling programs, they often struggle with the disconnection that happens when students are seated safely behind a screen. As gatekeepers of the profession, online counselor educators face unique challenges in ensuring students are fully prepared to critically analyze and apply course material to meet the diverse needs of their future clients in a variety of settings. With the ever-changing landscape of the profession, counselor educators must prepare students to deliver services in the most effective means possible. This session will focus on innovative methods that can be used to enhance online counselor education programs while meeting CACREP requirements and ensuring students are not only engaging in but are critically analyzing course material and applying the skills needed to be the most competent counselors.

It covers the initial planning phase through the development and submission of a Self-Study Report.
