Creating Personal Dispositions for a Professional Counseling Program
Spurgeon, Shawn L.; Gibbons, Melinda M.; Cochran, Jeff L.
Counseling and Values, v57 n1 p96-108 Apr 2012
The Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs requires counselor training programs to undergo systematic evaluation of trainees. This evaluation can be challenging at times. The authors posit the use of dispositions as a tool for ongoing assessment of student development by detailing the process used to establish dispositions in a counselor training program. Using an N= 1 intensive case study approach, they provide information about the relevance of dispositions in counselor training, the origin of dispositions for the program, and ongoing efforts to evaluate the dispositions in terms of their relevance to student growth. Implications for counselor training and curriculum development are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
