(5 credits)

The responsibility of scholar-practitioners in the field of counseling is to consume and disseminate information in clinical, academic, and administrative settings. Students are provided with a model for development as professional counselors and scholar-practitioners through which they learn to process knowledge and engage in professional advocacy in this course. Students explore relationship, professional-writing, and presentation proficiencies and apply these skills in practice scenarios through application-based assignments. They also identify and evaluate publication and presentation venues. Applying course concepts and acquired knowledge, students gain practical experience as scholar-practitioners as they complete a manuscript for submission to a peer-reviewed, counseling-related journal.
