PDA on TA!

If you weren’t able to attend the second Professional Development Academy on Tuesday, November 11, we had a full house! We learned about Transactional Analysis from presenter Tim Hunt and learned how our “Parent, Adult, and Child” interact when looking at additions. Below is a picture from the PDA- who remembers what Mr. Hunt was talking about in the photo??
From the looks of our surveys, we will have to invite Mr. Hunt to speak about Transactional Analysis again! Our surveys revealed a huge interest in learning more about TA and other TA methods. We will be putting up Mr. Hunt’s powerpoint on the CSI section of the site soon, so be on the look out!

May the Counseling Site Be Ever in Your Favor!

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!

Class Selfie!

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!
