Professional Identity Development of Counselor Education Doctoral Students
Dollarhide, Colette T.; Gibson, Donna M.; Moss, Julie M.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v52 n2 p137-150 Jun 2013
The authors used grounded theory to explore professional identity transitions for 23 counselor education doctoral students in a cross-section sample based on nodal points in their programs. The transformational tasks that doctoral students face involve integration of multiple identities, evolution of confidence and legitimacy, and acceptance of responsibility as the source of knowledge about the profession. The authors offer implications for training doctoral students. (Contains 1 figure.)
