Research Invitation: Counselors and counseling in 2020
As you know firsthand, those in the counseling community are in a challenging position in that they are helping others to cope and heal while also coping themselves with the intersection of the COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest, and ongoing systemic injustice and discrimination including xenophobia, racism, and racial violence in the US. In order to inform strategies to support counselors and student counselors, we want to learn about counselors’ and counseling students’ personal and professional/academic experiences during 2020, including experiences related to both COVID-19 and systemic injustice, and how those experiences may differ by some aspects of culture, identity, and circumstance.
