"Is it Okay to be Me?": Ethics in Boundaries and Counselor Self-Disclosure

Tessa Price, MA, LCPC & Kalin Morley, M.Coun., LPC
3 CONTACT HOURS

Research indicates that counselor self-disclosure is typically desired and viewed positively by individuals receiving counseling (Hendrick, 1988).

This workshop will review the ACA Code of Ethics and other applicable codes related to boundaries and use of self-disclosure. The presenters will also review on the research currently available on the ethics of counselor self-disclosure, different kinds of counselor self-disclosure, and the process of maintaining boundaries when self-disclosing arises.

                           Engaging Boys and Men in Counseling and Education: Developing a Broader Understanding of What it Means to be Relational

Peter Mortola, Ph.D.
3 CONTACT HOURS

Description:

Research has demonstrated that a significant number of boys and men are struggling with engagement: with their own emotions, within social relationships, and within educational and mental health contexts. At the same time, many professionals in education and counseling are challenged with the ability to stay in good and helpful relational engagement with boys and men: with understanding both the social and biological influences on male development, and with knowing how to connect with boys and men in ways that help them flourish. This presentation challenges adults who work with boys and men to see them in new ways and to develop skills that will help boys and men to be more interpersonally and respectfully engaged within counseling and educational settings. Specifically we will be explore the data that points toward a particular and common male relational style, an empathy for things, as a way of understanding better how many males relate to the world and how we can relate better to them.

Goals for Participants

a. Engaging with the data regarding the issues boys and men face in counseling and educational contexts

b. Engaging with the research and theory regarding the social and biological influences on male development and implications for practice within counseling and education settings.

c. Engaging with the research and theory regarding the relational style common to many males and understanding the opportunities and challenges this relational style offers.

d. Engaging with and applying concepts from the readings and the course to one’s professional and personal life through discussion and written reflection.
