    ACES & SACES Graduate Student Representatives

    Each of the five ACES regions nominate one student to serve as the ACES Graduate Student Representative (GSR). From these five nominations, the ACES Governing Council will choose one student to serve in this position. This is a three year service position: designee, current, and past GSR. The GSR must be available to attend the ACES Governing Council Meeting June 6-9, 2019 in Seattle, Washington and commit to attending all Governing Council meetings for their term. The ACES Handbook has a full description of the roles. You can find it on the ACES website (www.acesonline.net) under Resources. Applications are due January 7, 2019.

    SACES is currently accepting applications from doctoral students who are early in their academic program (a graduate student serving as a GSR must hold doctoral student/doctoral candidate status for at least 2 years of their service and only the final year could be served as a new faculty member or supervisor) to be the SACES nominee. SACES will select a GSR nominee and an alternate. In the event that the SACES nominee is selected to serve as ACES GSR, the alternate will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2018-2019. In the event that the SACES nominee is not selected to serve as ACES GSR, the nominee will be appointed to the SACES Board for 2018-2019.  

    To apply, please email the following materials to Natoya Hill Haskins at nhhaskins@wm.edu:

    • A cover letter describing your educational and other relevant experiences to the position, including your previous and/or current involvement with ACES and SACES.
    • A current CV
    • Your answer to this question (posed by ACES): “What would be different in a year service position that would show it was useful, that you were the right person to apply, and that ACES was right to have selected you?"
    • A 3-5 minute video introducing yourself self and speaking about goals if selected as GSR.

    A quick reminder to join the inaugural SACES Webinar sponsored by the SACES Social Justice and Human Rights Interest Network 

    The Civilian Counselor Working with Veterans and Their Dependents: Implications for Counselor Preparation
    Presented by: Dr. Jessica Melendez Tyler
    Monday, November 26, 2018, 3-4 pm CST / 4-5 pm EST
    Register now through GoToTraining. 

    Understanding the broader sense of the military experience, culture, and lifestyle is understudied in counselor education, leaving a gap about the unique mental health needs of veterans and their dependents. Civilian practitioners must establish credibility and trust to find treatment efficacy in treating this population. This webinar discusses the multilayered needs and mechanics of working with veterans, dependents, and military trauma. This webinar also provides strategies for program application on how to integrate military culture and issues into counselor education.

    The webinar objectives are as follows: (1) Address the cross-cultural components of effective clinical work with the veteran population, (2) Discuss strategies and essential mechanisms for civilian counselors to best treat veterans and military issues, (3) Considerations for how counselor education programs can infuse the clinical treatment of service members as a specific population into their curriculum.

    Questions about this webinar? Contact Regina Finan (rfinan@uga.edu) or Malti Tuttle (mst0022@auburn.edu), the SACES Social Justice and Human Rights Interest Network Co-Chairs.

    As we move into the second day of the conference, we would like to acknowledge that Hurricane Michael's impact has been felt far and wide within our region; for some it affected travel plans, for others, it impacted you and your families in ways that may take time to recover.  Our hearts go out to those impacted and we hope that in the coming days those affected are able to  restore their sense of peace and stability.

    For those of you who were able to join us at the conference, we appreciate you making the journey to get here and hope your conference experience will be enriching and invigorating. Although we experienced some cancellations, we were also able to move some sessions to a later time so that presenters could still provide these sessions to you. Therefore, please check the updated conference app or view the bulletin board near the registration desk for a list of changed and/or cancelled sessions.  In addition to a series of great sessions throughout the day, we hope you will join us for the Business Meeting and Awards Luncheon at noon in the Palisades Ballroom. We also have a fun reception planned tonight on the pool deck overlooking the beach and look forward to seeing you there.
