Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Volume 7, Number 1 (2015) Spring

Editorial Note

We are excited to bring you the Spring 2015 issue of the Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision. This issue focuses on training counselors and counselor education. Mariksa uses Charmaz’ Grounded theory to explore students’ experiences using their own life information during pre-practicum role-plays. Jensen, McAuliffe and Seay investigate the relationship between pre-service counselors’ cognitive developmental levels and their competency skill levels. Merryman, Martin and Martin research the relationship between student psychological well-being and perceived wellness. Hannon and Hunt describe how to integrate grief counseling content into counselor education programs with specific examples. Lastly, Swank and McCarthy study the effectiveness of the Counselor Feedback Training Model as it relates to counseling students’ beliefs and self-efficacy around the feedback process during training.

As editor, I thank all of the dedicated reviewers who worked quickly and diligently to produce high quality manuscript for JCPS. I also recognize my Associate Editor Jane Webber, Editorial Assistant Ellery Parker, and Graduate Assistant Lauren Spinella who spent many hours working with reviewers and authors. Additionally, I thank the NARACES Board for their continued support.
