Currently Accepting Proposals for a Special Issue of Teaching and Supervision in Counseling: Anti-Racist Counselor Education

Racism is a longstanding, insidious, and divisive system of oppression that has permeated the social fabric of the United States. The recent murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Rayshard Brooks, among many others, have highlighted a daily reality for many Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and they represent the magnitude of anti-racist work that remains to be done. In counseling and counselor education and supervision, it is critical that social justice not be considered just a “force” in counseling, but rather the foundation of competent training and practice. In an effort to decolonize professional counseling, examine and challenge power and hierarchy, and elevate diverse ways of knowing, guest editor(s) Drs. Paul C. Harris, Erik M. Hines, and Renae D. Mayes, along with the TSC editor and associate editor are creating a special issue of the Teaching and Supervision in Counseling journal focused on anti-racism in counselor education.

In this special issue, we are inviting both conceptual and empirical manuscripts that speak to anti-racist practices in counselor education. More specifically, we are inviting manuscripts that challenge professionals for change and provide action steps to consider in areas of counselor education such as teaching, research, service, supervision, and mentorship, across multiple levels (e.g., individual, classroom, profession).

We are asking potential authors to submit proposals to be considered for the special issue. We encourage collaboration between faculty and student authors. We are inviting authors to provide a proposal for a manuscript that they would like to submit for consideration to tscjournal@saces.org by September 11, 2020.

The proposal needs to include:

  • potential title
  • indication if this is an empirical or conceptual manuscript
  • detailed information on the topic area, intention of the manuscript, study information (if applicable), and the call for action and challenge it will provide

The proposal should not exceed 3-pages and should be double spaced, 12-point font, and 1-inch margins.

TSC will be publishing this special issue this academic year, so the timeline is noted below. The proposal should indicate that you are aware of the timeline and will be able to finalize a manuscript for submission within the time frame if invited.

Tentative timeline:

  • Submission of 3 page proposal to tscjournal@saces.org by September 11, 2020
  • Invitation to submit will be provided to authors by the guest editors by September 25, 2020 · Submission of invited manuscripts through https://trace.tennessee.edu/tsc by December 7, 2020
  • All submissions should follow author guidelines and submission requirements listed on the website
  • Peer review received approximately end of January 2021
  • Final manuscript revisions need to be received by end of February 2021
  • Potential issue will be published in May/June 2021
