    Ethical Practice when Working with Minority Children

    According to the Pew Research Center, demographic makeup of the American population is more divers racial and ethnically than it has been in the past. In addition to the increasing numbers of minority groups, there is also growth of foreign born immigrants contributing to the changing demographics of the United States (Lopez, Passel, & Rohall, 2015). As ethically practicing counselors, it is imperative that we are culturally aware and responsive to needs of this changing nation.

    Introduction to Best Practices in Animal Assisted Therapy in Counseling: Provider Competence, Ethics, and Techniques

    Animal assisted therapy in counseling (AAT-C) is the incorporation of specially trained and evaluated animals as therapeutic agents into the counseling process, thus utilizing the human-animal bond in goal directed interventions as part of the counseling process. While this specialty area remains relatively under represented in counseling literature, existing studies have found that when practiced with appropriate training and expertise, AAT-C interventions can positively impact the therapeutic experiences of a diverse range of client populations across a wide variety of treatment settings. In this webinar, the presenter will introduce theoretical foundations of AAT-C, discuss provider competence, identify relevant ethical considerations including animal advocacy and multicultural considerations, and address practical aspects and techniques associated with incorporating AAT-C in a professional counseling context. This is an introductory level workshop that is intended to help interested professionals develop a plan for implementing AAT into their clinical practice. A live therapy animal may be included for demonstrations if appropriate based on animal welfare considerations.

    Conversations that Matter

    Let's face it; there are people and topics that at some point are just off limits. You just can't do it or them right now. Even worse, often it is a difficulty topic that you have to bring up with a difficult person. what if you could engage in these conversations with more confidence, humor, and ease? No matter the person or topic, you are your best tool for conversations that matter. Understanding your self and others as differently right gives you the tools to intentionally design teams, groups, and pertnerships that can bring value to a single project or topic. we are all frustrating to someone, and at times even to ourselves. Once you know who and how you are, you can reclaim responsibility for these behavior response patterns and leave room for others to do the same. Before you know it, you are having better conversations and fuller relationships with those around you. I promise - it is that easy.
