Becoming a Gatekeeper: Recommendations for Preparing Doctoral Students in Counselor Education
Rapp, Marisa C.; Moody, Steven J.; Stewart, Leslie A.
Professional Counselor, v8 n2 p190-199 2018
The Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP) standards call for doctoral preparation programs to graduate students who are competent in gatekeeping functions. Despite these standards, little is understood regarding the development and training of doctoral students in their roles as gatekeepers. We propose a call for further investigation into doctoral student gatekeeper development and training in gatekeeping practices. Additionally, we provide training and programmatic curriculum recommendations derived from current literature for counselor education programs. Finally, we discuss implications of gatekeeping training in counselor education along with future areas of research for the profession.
