3 Welcome to the 2016 PCA Conference Greetings PCA Members: Welcome to the 48th Annual Pennsylvania Counseling Association state conference! Forty-eight years is an incredible span of time! We re coming up on nearly half a century worth of advocacy for professional counselors in the state of Pennsylvania. Whether you realized it or not when you registered for this conference, you re all a part of something pretty exceptional here. This is going to be an amazing weekend to say the least, and I can t thank everyone enough for all of their time and support in making this happen. Our conference committee Lisa Corbin, Dr. Linda Thompson, and Dr. Abby Dougherty did a fantastic job sorting through our largest pool of proposals ever. Our keynote speaker Dr. James Alexander is taking time from his incredibly hectic schedule to fly here all the way from Utah. And of course, the PCA board, our student volunteers, and all of our dues paying members (even the ones that couldn t make it this weekend) deserve a heartfelt thank you for everything they bring to this organization. On that note, as pleased as I am by the number of attendees for this year, I must admit: it s still pretty small when you compare this to our numbers throughout the state. In case you weren t aware, there are currently over 7,000 licensed professional counselors in the state of PA more than psychologists, social workers, and MFTs, by the way and only about 7% of which are members of PCA. That just won t do. PCA is not just an annual conference. Our goal as an organization is to make sure that all of those 7,000 counselors can stay employed in the years to come, and we can t make that happen at 7%. So once more, please: spread the word. Make sure that all of your peers and colleagues understand the value of contributing and that they stay current on their membership. I always love seeing everyone come together once a year for this conference, but we need this kind of support year round. I look forward to spending the next few days learning, connecting, and celebrating the profession of counseling throughout Pennsylvania. Have a wonderful weekend! Hope all is well, Charles Jacob Charles Jacob, Ph.D 1

Miller PsyD, LPC, LMFT, NCC This presentation brings one back to the devastating earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, which exposed Haiti s lack of preexisting mental health services. When low-income countries experience emergency situations through conflicts or natural disasters, these humanitarian crises are presented as opportunities to build back better mental health systems. Critical issues and innovative care delivery models aimed at reducing the burden of mental illness for LICs are examined. Thinking Outside the Box: Implications for School Counselors Working with Bullying Behaviors in an Evolving World Jennifer M. Toby, M.Ed. with Karen L. Dickinson, Ph.D., and Molly K. Topp, B.A. School Counselors play a pertinent role in preventing and intervening when acts of bullying occur. Current research will inform participants on how school counselors can creatively prevent and address bullying behaviors in schools. Further suggestions will be shared for preparing counselors-in-training to effectively deal with these behaviors. The Association Between Cyberbullying and Suicidal Ideation in Adolescents Fatemeh Dehghan Manshadi/ Student Victims of cyberbullying face distressful situations that sometimes are hard for them to escape, and as a result, they may develop negative emotions such as suicidal ideation. Some school counselors and mental health counselors lack the knowledge to assess cyberbullying and/or suicidal ideation in youth as well as the training to successfully help the cyberbullying victims-a deficiency in support that may lead to youth suicidal ideation. Both school counselors and mental health counselors can benefit from the presentation on cyberbullying and suicidal ideation. The presenter will provide information about the relationship between cyberbullying and suicidal ideation in adolescents based on the latest literature review. Male Victims of Sexual Assault: Our clinical blindspot. Bradley A. Janey, NCC, LPC with Tara L. Clifford, B.S.

We will conclude with advocacy, prevention and male-sensitive treatment options for both individual males, and groups. 7

10 Professional School Counselors: Where are the Males?! Karen L. Dickinson, Ph.D with Dylan J. Metz, B.A. Of the 11,614 School Counseling degrees conferred in , only 18% of them were given to males, making this particular profession a nontraditional one for males.

A Qualitative Investigation of Peer Mentoring to Support LGBTQ Students with Bullying Creating and Implementing Programs for Queer Individuals to Thrive Casey Meiser, MA with Michael Morrow, PhD LGBTQ students are at heightened risk for bullying and psychosocial difficulties. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six LGBTQ-identified college students to examine peer mentoring groups potential to support LGBTQ youth with bullying. All participants reported these groups could be helpful with certain precautions in place. Guidelines are offered. When Your Biography Becomes Your Biology: How Childhood Trauma Impacts Neurodevelopment And The Clinical Implication For Counselors. Peihsuan Liu, M.Ed., NCC with Ying Yang, M.Ed/Ed.S, NCC Conducted in 1998, Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study has great influence in the field of counseling. Considering the practical value of ACE study and the increasing interest in neurodevelopment, the presenters will introduce ACE study, present the impact of ACE on neurodevelopment, and provide counselors relevant clinical implications. Development of a Cyber Counseling Model in South Korea Minjung Chae (Ph.D) with Yang, Mi Jin & Yu, Jun ho (Korea Youth Counseling & Welfare Institute) and Park, Sung Yoon (Korea University) The purpose of this study is to develop a cyber counseling model and evaluate its effects and practical operations. To develop the Cyber Counseling Model, verbal response analysis of chatting counseling, Delphi research, in-depth studies of the individual and group interviews for patients, and focus group interview for cyber counselors were conducted. Toward Developing a Rater-Based Method of Assessing Secondary Attachment Strategies in the Maternal Fetal Attachment Relationship Kaitlyn Schneider, M.S., NCC Existing research has not yet explored the presence of secondary attachment strategies in the Maternal- Fetal Attachment (MFA) relationship. This study sought to develop a rater-based approach to assess how hyperactivating and deactivating strategies are presented in the attachment experiences of expectant mothers. Implications for counselors and future research are discussed. An Interfaith View of Possession as it Relates to the Mental Health Professional Melissa M. Gericke, B.A. Many counselors have neglected the varied views of spiritual and/or religious beliefs. Therefore, the purpose of this presentation is to (a) discuss the experience of possession as it relates to the unidentification of mental health diagnosis and (b) provide a cross-cultural view of mental health. 8

11 Addressing Harmful Clinical Supervision: Creating a Culture of Student Advocacy Janet L. Muse-Burke with Emy Monday, MA Qualities of helpful versus harmful supervisors have been described in the counseling literature, and counselor educators are typically trained in clinical supervision. However, students receiving clinical supervision often experience harmful supervision. Therefore, suggestions for how supervisors and students might advocate for effective supervision and address problematic supervision will be discussed. Effective School Counseling for Attention Problems in Elementary (ESCAPE): New and Practical Application for ADHD Treatment in Schools Whitney Moore, B.S. Much research has been conducted on various treatment modalities for ADHD; however, there is a lack of consensus on systematic, comprehensive intervention that can be implemented in school settings and facilitated by school counselors. This presentation introduces a proposed treatment model, ESCAPE, designed specifically for implementation by school counselors. Working with Latino Clients Wanda Ruiz About 47 million Latinos/Hispanics currently live in the United States, and by 2060, Latinos/Hispanics will account for about 31 percent of U.S. residents, according to U.S. Census Bureau (2014) estimates. Some of the challenges mental health practitioners face when counseling the Latino/Hispanic populations are: (a) there are many stereotypes of Latino/Hispanic clients that counselors are inclined to accept as fact and apply to all Latinos/Hispanics, (b) language barriers can and will cause difficulties that counselors need to be prepared to address in order to appropriately counsel Latino/Hispanic clients in group and individual settings, and (c) being informed about the Latino/Hispanic culture and complying with the ethical codes of cross-cultural competencies does not only imply that you should only read about the culture, it means learning about the culture through their environments.

The objective is to explore and highlight the role for counselors, utilizing qualitative research methodology, within a global context. 9

25 In Memoriam: Edwin Herr by Lauren C. Ostrowski and Ryan Gruber Edwin (Ed) Herr was an influential figure in the professional counseling landscape. In addition to his accomplishments across the nation, he was passionate about the field of professional counseling here in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Counseling Association would like to honor him through mentioning some of his contributions and opening a window into how he was a guiding light. Herr had many more accomplishments than can be listed here. Among the largest, he was a professor and associate dean emeritus of the College of Education at Pennsylvania State University, also served terms as president of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision, the National Career Development Association (NCDA) and Chi Sigma Iota, the international counseling academic and professional honor society. He wrote more than 30 books, 300 journal articles and numerous book chapters throughout his career (Shokouhi-Behnam, 2016 para. 2). According to Spencer Skip Niles, Herr was a caring mentor and teacher focused on the individual (Shokouhi- Behnam, 2016). In speaking with Niles, it is clear how Herr mastered the balance of influencing individuals and inspiring them to continue advocacy in groups while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of each person s contribution to the current issue and the arena of professional counseling (S. Niles, personal communication, June 7, 2016). Also in personal communication with Niles, he disclosed the following: Ed had an incredible capacity to see potential in others when they couldn t see it in themselves. Additionally, Niles references a tremendous combination of caring, humility, and compassion, while providing a vivid mental image of the concept: if you came into his orbit, he was very likely to care about you and to extend himself to you (personal communication, June 7, 2016). As Niles speaks of the innumerable strengths of Herr and the ways in which Niles career flourished with continued mentorship with Herr, he describes the depth of their relationship: Ed was my teacher and mentor and he was also like a father, uncle, brother, and friend to me all in one person (personal communication, June 7, 2016). Niles expressed feeling insight, wisdom, and comfort in the poem On the Death of the Beloved by John O Donohue: Though we need to weep your loss, You dwell in that safe place in our hearts, Where no storm or night or pain can reach you. We look towards each other no longer From the old distance of our names; Now you dwell inside the rhythm of breath As close to us as we are to ourselves. Though we cannot see you with outward eyes, We know our soul s gaze is upon your face, Smiling back at us from within everything To which we bring our best refinement. Let us not look for you only in memory, Where we would grow lonely without you. You would want us to find you in presence, Beside us when beauty brightens, When kindness glows And music echoes eternal tones. May you continue to inspire us: To enter each day with a generous heart. To serve the call of courage and love Until we see your beautiful face again In that land where there is no more separation, Where all tears will be wiped from our mind, And where we will never lose you again. Although neither author of this article had the opportunity to know Herr, it is clear that he left a profound legacy in his stead. Let us all uphold his legacy by having a renewed commitment to honor the past, live in the present, and better the future of the profession of counseling. Reference Shokouhi-Behnam, S. (2016).
