Abstract

The purpose of this research study was to examine the differences between traditional student teaching and student teaching through a co-teaching methodology. A pilot study was conducted at California State University, Northridge with student teachers in Elementary Education. Results showed that both master and student teachers were more positive about the co-teaching experiences over the traditional experiences. A follow-up study is in progress.

Minton, S. J., & Maffini, C. (2017, April). Building awareness to build competence: Developing culturally-responsive counseling practices.  Presentation presented at the 2017 CALPCC Conference, Redlands, CA.

Abstract

Counselors strive to provide quality services within their competence and ethical boundaries. However, in an increasingly diverse country, we encounter clients who are of a culture of which we are unfamiliar or have limited knowledge. In this interactive session, we address the complexities of cultural identities and strategies for providing culturally-responsive services to clients. Attendees will engage critically to examine how the counselor’s self-awareness affects their counseling practice. Additionally, attendees will participate in experiential activities and discussions to raise awareness about their identity and abilities to advocate with and on behalf of clients, and identify culturally-responsive strategies to engage diverse clients. Lastly, there will be reflection on how one’s theoretical orientation may guide one’s work with culturally diverse clients.
