On Tuesday (8/25), Practicum and Internship students met together to learn how to be professional while at their counseling sites. Dr. Chae (pictured below) is explaining professional behavior to the students, and how to become “Star Counselors” (aka that perfect combination of competence and commitment).
Practicum and Internship students also learned about the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Exam (CPCE), the National Counseling Exam (NCE), and the Praxis II. There were a large number of attendees; so much so, we had to use another classroom!
The students pictured above are new counseling students, and were at the New Graduate Student Orientation. UNCP counseling faculty, staff, and fellow graduate students would like to welcome you to our campus!
We are so glad you chose UNCP!
UNCP was busy in the Spring 2015 semester, and we are looking forward to more conferences, research posters, and presentations this semester! Take a look back at our busy Spring semester under “Counseling Achievements”!
Keep an eye on your email for upcoming conference registration deadlines, research poster sessions, and calls for presentations!
Joining our Counseling Faculty this year is our newest adjunct instructor Dr. Mary Whitfield Williams (pictured below in lower left hand corner). Dr. Williams taught CNS 5100: Groups in Counseling during Summer II (2015), and decided to take a “selfie” of her class to conclude an awesome semester.
Welcome to UNCP Dr. Williams!
While you may know the UNCP Chi Sigma Iota chapter is presenting at the ACA Conference and Expo this year, did you know they are also participating in the CSI Showcase at the conference?! Below is the slide they had to submit in order to participate; this slide will be shown amongst other attending CSI chapters. Big congrats and let’s wish them luck on their presentation on March 14, 2015 at Noon!
