Factors Impacting Counselor Competency When Counseling Sexual Minority Intimate Partner Violence Victims
Hancock, Ryan
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Old Dominion University
A queer theory perspective and grounded theory techniques were used to examine perceptions of counselor competency with sexual minority intimate partner violence victims. Ten counselors participated in two rounds of individual interviews. Results indicate that beneficial aspects of competency development occurred prior to, during, and after their graduate counseling program. Training deficits and personal impediments were also identified. Implications for professional associations, supervisors, and counselor educators are discussed.
