Counseling Deployed Military and their Families and Advanced Counselor Identity

Wiesloch, Germany
October 27 – November 3, 2012

This International field experience to Germany will emphasize two main topics. First, the class will explore the issues encountered by families who have been deployed in our US military in order to better prepare students to work with families and military personnel in the transition prior to deployment, during deployment, or re-adjustment to United States after a deployment . Discussions with military chaplains, family life counselors, school counselors, and others in the military will offer insight into the issues encountered by families in order to become more aware of deployment issues and how counselors can assist families in these transitions. Second, the class will attend the annual European Branch of the American Counseling Association Conference for enhanced professional counselor identity. Students will present a poster session at the conference on a topic of personal interest related to counseling as part of the class requirement.
