    We are only a week away from oceanfront views, great networking opportunities, and intellectually stimulating conference sessions!  As you finalize your trip plans we would like to share a few reminders and information that should enhance your conference experience.


    • If you are flying in after 9pm we encourage you to set up ground transportation prior to getting to Myrtle Beach, it is a small airport so transport from the airport can be limited.  We have identified two Taxi Drivers who we used in our site visits that are available during these evening hours:
      • Big Mike 423-817-2659
      • Stilian Baku 843-424-1312
    • If you are driving, you may wish to view the SCDOT website for current road closures and delays in South Carolina before you leave.

     Conference Information

    I would like to thank our conference committee and volunteers for all the work that has gone into preparing for this conference. I am also thankful to our SACES Conference 2018 sponsors; please be sure to check out their ads or stop by their exhibit booths.

    We look forward to seeing you in two weeks for the SACES conference. As you are putting your travel plans in place to join us in Myrtle Beach, please consider that while many of the main highways are clear, the secondary roads may still be experiencing some flooding and may be closed. We hope that the rivers recede and the roads reopen before the conference; however, we ask that you take the time to identify closed secondary roads before you leave your home if you are driving; you can view the SCDOT website for current road closures in South Carolina. For those flying in, the roads from the Myrtle Beach airport to the Hilton Resort and the surrounding area are open and not experiencing flooding. We will update you again before you leave for the conference if this has changed.

    Please be safe in your travels and we hope to see you soon.

    Attention SACES Members!

    The conference hotel and Myrtle Beach surrounding areas were not significantly impacted by Hurricane Florence.  However, our thoughts are still with members who are residents of North Carolina, as we know many are still experiencing significant challenges.  I hope to see many of you next month in Myrtle Beach.

    As many of us prepare for Hurricane Florence to make landfall, we hope that you are making arrangements to keep you and your family safe. We also know many are concerned about what this may mean for the conference.  We are actively monitoring the impact on Myrtle Beach and will share any changes regarding the conference as we receive information about the storm’s impact on our conference hotel in the next week or so. Conference updates will be posted here and sent out via email.

    Stay safe,

      Teaching and Supervision in Counseling (TSC) is the official journal of the Southern Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (SACES), a region of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES).  The mission of SACES is to empower and support diverse counselor educators and supervisors in scholarship, advocacy, community, education, and supervision.  

      The aim of TSC is to publish high quality scholarship that informs teaching, supervision, and mentoring in educational and clinical settings. Articles may be empirical, conceptual or theoretical, or based on current issues; with an emphasis on empirical research. Articles must be scholarly, grounded in existing literature, and have implications for the counseling profession including, but not limited to, counselor education, supervisory practice, clinical training, pedagogy, mentoring, or advocacy and public policy. Additionally, a goal of TSC is to provide mentoring to graduate students in the area of peer review and writing. All manuscripts are submitted to a blind peer-review process.   

      Call for Editorial Board Members. We are seeking applications for editorial board positions within the SACES’s Teaching and Supervision in Counseling (TSC) journal. Board members will be appointed for a three-year term beginning September 1, 2018 and are expected to provide continuous service during that period of time. There are two types of board positions on the TSC: (1) professional editorial board member and (2) graduate student editorial board member. Qualifications for each position is described below. Regardless of position, all editorial board members are required to be a member of SACES, a commitment to prompt (within 30 days) and thorough review of 1 to 2 manuscripts per month, and a commitment to attend the editorial board meeting held at the SACES/ACES conferences. Applicants must have an expertise in one or more qualitative and/or quantitative research methodologies. Please submit the required documents noted below, with a letter indicating the board position you are applying in the editorial board survey.  

      If you have any questions, please contact the TSC Editor, Kelly Wester, at klwester@uncg.edu.    

      In addition to the requirements noted above, professional editorial board member requirements include an individual holding a doctoral degree in a counseling-related discipline and a record of scholarly publications in national peer-refereed journals. If applying for a professional editorial board member position please submit the following documents in one PDF using the following editorial board survey

      1. A letter of application specifying qualifications for board membership, a commitment to board service, and scholarly interests;   
      2. A current curriculum vita  

      As an extension of SACES, the TSC has a commitment to empower and support the education and growth of current and future counselor educators and supervisors. Given this commitment, the TSC will take on a few graduate students in counseling to be mentored in the peer review process. These graduate student members will be members of the editorial board and engage in the peer review process, with guidance and mentorship. In addition to the requirements noted above, graduate student editorial board member requirements include an individual being currently enrolled in a master’s or doctoral counseling or counselor education program, and a record of scholarly publications or research activity. If applying for a graduate student editorial board member position please submit the following document in one PDF using the following graduate student editorial board survey:

      1. A letter of application specifying qualifications for board membership, a commitment to board service, scholarly interests;  
      2. A current curriculum vita
