School Counselors and Legal Muscle to Support Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning Youth Students

Dr. Carolyn Stone, University of North Florida

This session will discuss how the courts and the code of ethics support school counselors in their advocacy role for GLBTQ. Central to a recent court case, Ward v. Wilbanks, was the defense’s argument that school counselors worldwide have a compelling interest in ensuring that members of the profession adhere to the ACA Code of Ethics and ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors and require counselors to develop competencies to work effectively with diverse populations and to avoid harm by the non-imposition of personal value. Ward maintained that she could refer a student who wanted help with a same sex relationship based on a conflict with her religious beliefs. The revised 2014 ACA Code of Ethics has clarified the difference between referring based on values and competencies. Referral as intended by Ms. Ward, is considered unethical.  This and other court cases will be discussed and their implications for school counselor practice.

Professional school counselors are called to effectively present the full picture of what is going on in their schools.  In fact, when they overview their accountability data, school and district leaders like to see clear positive trends in “the numbers,” hear success stories, and learn about subsequent action steps. In this user-friendly workshop, you will learn how to write meaningful research questions that can be answered using fairly simple quantitative and qualitative tools. A gentle refresher is provided on key “data-related” concepts. What do we really mean by these terms: action research, generalizability of findings, reliability, and validity, and narrative data? What are we implying when we say the results are statistically significant and “triangulated” with other sources of information? Learn how to compare group differences using averages or frequencies with online tools.

Our Yellow Brick Road: Exploring Kansas Model Social, Emotional, and Character Development

Audrey Neuschafer

Teachers regularly identify perseverance, organization skills, respect, motivation, and responsibility as essential to student success. Students who have these skills are able to develop positive relationships, have increased test scores, and have fewer discipline referrals – no wizard required! The Kansas Model Social, Emotional, and Character Development Standards were designed to give educators a structure to help students learn, practice, and model essential personal life skills and habits that contribute to academic, vocational, and personal success. At this session we will explore these standards, how they contribute to school culture, and how school counselors can use these state-adopted, model standards in their buildings/districts.

Preparing Students for Career Success with Hope and Confidence: What School Counselors can Learn from an Evidence-based, Narrative Framework

Mark Franklin

Mark Franklin Bio

Mark Franklin

Mark Franklin, MEd, CMF, is practice leader and founder of CareerCycles and president of One Life Tools. Mark and an amazing team of Associates have enriched the career well-being of 4000+ clients. Mark was the recipient of the Stu Conger Leadership Award for Career Development in 2015. He developed the CareerCycles narrative method of practice, co-authored six related peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, and co-developed the Who You Are Matters! game. Mark presents internationally (National Career Development Association, Dutch Career Conference, Cannexus), hosts the Career Buzz radio show, and worked as a career counselor at two of Canada’s largest universities after a first career in engineering. Mark holds the Career Management Fellow designation through the Institute of Career Certification International and is a Canadian Certified Counselor.

Students often approach career planning from a place insecurity and doubt, yet these emotional states can be barriers toward meaningful and positive outcomes. In career dialogues, how can we nudge worry and uncertainty toward hope, optimism and confidence?

The CareerCycles narrative framework and method of practice uses students’ stories as starting points, from which to gather and organize strengths and desires, personal qualities and the influences of others. Sidestepping traditional career assessments, this story-based approach engages students while helping to generate promising career and learning possibilities. This holistic framework is grounded in elements of narrative, happenstance, and positive psychology.

Learn about this framework and its origins, hear outcome study results, and understand the benefits and dynamics of a framework that’s creating a new language for career conversations, and supporting a move toward evidence-based practice. Leave inspired with new ideas for you and your students.
