    SACES Graduate Student May Meeting Vote

    Greetings Graduate Students:

    As our semesters come to a close, I am planning our next GS Committee meeting. Please take a minute and vote for the best day/time for you to participate.

    We met this past week and offered support and collaboration for each other as graduate students. Support is something we can all use during these unprecedented times. If you were unable to attend, I hope that you will take the time to join us in May. We will be discussing opportunities for the coming year in SACES, especially as it applies to our workgroups.

    Your vote for the day/time is important in planning this meeting, so please take the time to vote today.

    Be well!

    SACES Graduate Student April Meeting 

    Hello Fellow Graduate Students!

    I sent a message out a couple of weeks ago with the doodle poll for our next graduate student meeting.  Thank you to all those who voted.  The meeting will be held on April 24, 2020 from 11-12 PM CDT.  The complete invitation will be at the end of this message.  Please remember that we now have to enter a password, which is included in the invitation below.

    This meeting will focus on supporting one another.  I have spoken with many of you and know that as graduate students and new professionals, the pandemic has brought forth additional challenges.  Our committee wants to support you during this time.  Please join us and fellowship with other graduate students who understand what you may be facing.  We will cover a couple of topics, but this is primarily for everyone to feel support.  

    Please reach out to me if you have any questions or would like to have anything specific added to our discussion.

    Thank you all for serving others during this time, we appreciate you!

    Dr. Jennifer Nivin Williamson & Dr. Daniel Williamson

    Thursday, April 16th 12pm-1pm EST
    Register through Zoom

    As supervisors and supervisees enter into new supervision relationships, it is easy to overlook key elements that can create friction in the relationship. This talk explores components that should be identified and negotiated in a 21st century contract including virtual supervision options, social media policies, payment structures, and much much more. (An article on the topic in Counseling Today)

    Webinar objectives:

    1. To outline key elements for negotiation when entering supervisory relationships.

    2. To identify the relational elements involved in building and maintaining egalitarian supervisory relationships.

    3. To explore major ethical dilemmas in modern supervisory relationships.

    Presenter Bios: 

    Drs. Daniel and Jennifer Williamson are founders of PAX Consulting and Counseling PLLC and Core Faculty with Capella University. They are both Fulbright Specialist Alumni in Mental Health and have trained counselors across the globe. They are recipients of the ACES Vision and Innovation Award. They are alumni of Baylor University, and they live and practice in the Waco/Temple area. Their research focuses on attachment, family reintegration, ethics, and how people find purpose and meaning in their lives. Daniel is former Chair of the ACA Policies and Bylaws Committee and Jennifer is the former Senior Co-Chair for the ACA Ethics Committee.

    *Note: This webinar will be recorded and available for later viewing after 1 month on the SACES Webinar Page. Attendees who are present for the full webinar time can receive CE credit*

    SACES Graduate Student April Meeting Poll

    Hello Fellow Graduate Students!

    Wow how things have changed since our last meeting!  I know this message may find many of you in an odd place, as we have all been navigating life under new expectations with the COVID-19 pandemic.  

    First, I want to let you know that you are not alone!  As fellow graduate students, I'm sure that many of us are facing similar challenges.  I would like to offer our next meeting as a way for us to come together and feel supported.  We will continue the same line of business as last month, as we did not have enough people join (most likely from effects of COVID-19).  However, more than anything, I would like to offer this meeting as a platform to discuss concerns, offer resources or just have a meeting of like minds.

    Please take time to complete the doodle poll to designate the best time for you to meet.  This poll will close on April 6th at 5 :00 PM CDT.  Again, we will discuss the agenda presented last month, so you should have access to that from our previous message.  However, I want to focus on support of one another and how we can come together during this time.

    Please email me if you have questions or concerns.  I look forward to meeting with all of you next month!

    Warmly,

    Eligibility

    The EL program is open to all active SACES graduate student members or first-year new professionals at the time of application. We especially encourage applications from individuals who are seeking opportunities to develop leadership skills and strongly committed to SACES vision related to inclusivity, community, and social justice in counselor education and supervision. The review committee especially welcomes candidates who identify with historically marginalized groups and will heavily consider applications spanning varying and diverse experiences.

    March Webinar

    Advocacy Considerations for LGBTQ+ Youth and Youth of Color in K-12 Public Schools

    Danielle McGarrh, LPC-Intern, NCC

    Thursday, March 19th 12pm-1pm EST
    Register through Zoom

    Despite some progress, LGBTQ+ youth are still excluded from many state protections. This reality places equity out of reach for this marginalized student population, particularly youth of color, and jeopardizes student safety. Counseling professionals are uniquely positioned to counter these barriers, yet many feel their role is /webinars or are unsure of their own rights within their organization. This presentation takes this seemingly grey dilemma and reveals a clearer path forward for ensuring a safer and more supportive environment for our precious LGBTQ+ youth.

    Webinar objectives:

    1. After this presentation, attendees will be able to utilize professional ethics codes to guide their respective professional roles.

    2. After this presentation, attendees will be able to evaluate their organization for strengths and weaknesses and competently implement best practices.

    3. After this presentation, attendees will be able to summarize increased risk factors for LGBTQ+ youth of color.

    4. After this presentation, attendees will be able to implement advocacy actions in their respective states.

    • Danielle McGarrh is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern working with the LGBTQ+ population. She is a second-year counselor education and supervision doctoral student at Texas A&M University-Commerce, where she works as a graduate assistant-research. She serves on the board of the Texas Counselors for Social Justice, is the founder of the peer-led counseling advocacy group, Counselor Advocates Learning to Lead (CALL), and a recent recipient of the TACES Outstanding Advocacy Award.
    *Note: This webinar will be recorded and available for later viewing after 1 month on the SACES Webinar Page. Attendees who are present for the full webinar time can receive CE credit*
