Trauma Training for School Counselors: How Well Do Programs Prepare?
Lokeman, Kimberly Shawnte
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Regent University
This study investigates the availability and perceived importance of trauma response training in school counseling preparatory programs. Using two population samples, 101 counselor educators of institutions with CACREP-accredited school counseling programs and 803 practicing school counselors, questionnaires assessed the extent to which institutions provided trauma response training. Results indicated a vast difference between the two populations regarding inclusion of the training in preparatory programs because 69.3% of counselor educators versus 31.3% of school counselors reported training inclusion. Additionally, school counselors rated the perceived importance of trauma response training significantly higher than did counselor educators, although both groups' ratings ranged from important to crucial. Suggestions for future research and implications for school counselor preparatory programs are discussed. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
