    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.

    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.
