6 Introduction to the Counseling Program Xavier University of Louisiana There are 102 historically Black colleges and 244 Catholic Colleges in the United States, yet only one is both historically Black and Catholic. That distinction belongs to Xavier University of Louisiana, which strives to combine the best attributes of both its faith and its culture. Located in New Orleans, the university dates back to 1915, when the co-educational secondary school, from which it evolved, was founded by Saint Katharine Drexel and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. Saint Katharine came to the city at the request of the local archbishop to provide African Americans at the time denied admission to existing local and state Catholic colleges-with opportunities for Catholic higher education. Although the Sisters maintain a vital presence on Campus, today Xavier is governed by an independent, lay/religious Board of Trustees on which the Sisters have representation. Even with its special mission to serve the Black, Catholic community, Xavier s doors have always been open to qualified candidates of any race or creed. Xavier University Mission & Goals Xavier University of Louisiana, founded by Saint Katharine Drexel and the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, is Catholic and historically Black. The ultimate purpose of the University is to contribute to the promotion of a more just and humane society by preparing its students to assume roles of leadership and service in a global society. This preparation takes place in a diverse learning and teaching environment that incorporates all relevant educational means, including research and community service. So that they will be able to assume roles of leadership and service, Xavier graduates will be: Prepared for continual spiritual, moral, and intellectual development; Liberally educated in the knowledge and skills required for leadership and service; and Educated in a specialty that will prepare them to meet the needs of an ever changing society. The Division of Education and Counseling Since 1915, when Xavier University was founded, it has accepted the sacred privilege and social responsibility of preparing well-qualified teachers for public and private elementary and secondary schools. Begun as a normal school, Xavier later became a four-year liberal arts institution awarding the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science Degrees. Xavier University of Louisiana College of Pharmacy was established in 1927 for the purpose of educating blacks and other minority students to become highly trained professionals and leaders in the field of pharmacy. The College of Pharmacy offers the 6

7 entry-level Pharm.D. degree as the only academic program and has over 600 students in the professional program. In March 1998, Xavier University became the first private/independent college/university in Louisiana to received accreditation by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) which signifies that the graduates will have been prepared according to accepted national standards of excellence. The program has successfully been reaffirmed with no recommendations in fall The counseling faculty submitted the CACREP self-study in fall 2004 and was anticipating a site visit when Hurricane Katrina changed the landscape of the University and all five program faculty were displaced. Because of the extensive damage to the University and because the full time faculty were unsure of the future of the program, they chose not to return to Xavier. Only one adjunct faculty member who then became full time carried on the program. In fall 2007, a second full time faculty member was hired and in 2009, the third full time faculty member was added. The faculty had to begin the process anew. At the time, the CACREP standards were in the process of being revised and a decision was made to wait until the 2009 CACREP standards were adopted. Since that time, the program has continued to follow the standards and in 2011 received approval to pursue accreditation. AT THIS TIME THE PROGRAM IS NOT CACREP ACCREDITED. The administration of Xavier University, during the Academic Year , assembled an Efficiency and Effectiveness Committee to study the current academic structure and to recommend various models. An extensive, broad-based process ensued. The academic structure that was recommended was the divisional model and six divisions were created. During the Spring 2013 semester, the faculty in the Division of Education recommended that the name of the division be changed to the Division of Education and Counseling thus giving a separate identity to the counseling program. The administration accepted this nomenclature and the Division of Education has been changed to the Division of Education and Counseling. 7

8 The Counseling Program Mission The Counseling Program, housed in the Division of Education and Counseling, furthers Xavier s mission by preparing counselors to assume roles of leadership and service in society as Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) through programmatic alignment with the Louisiana LPC Board of Examiners educational requirements. To promote a more just and humane society through counseling, the faculty prepare candidates who are knowledgeable, competent, reflective, and ethical. These candidates exhibit the highest degree of professionalism in facilitating the personal growth and development of clients at the individual, institutional, and systemic levels. This preparation takes place in a diverse teaching and learning environment that incorporates all relevant educational means, including scholarly works and community service. The Counseling Program Philosophy The Xavier University Counseling Program educates students within an integrated leadership-practitioner model thus enabling students to become professionals who are change agents in promoting and advocating for a more just and humane society. Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program The counseling program faculty prepare candidates using the LPC Board of Examiners eight content areas to work in a variety of diverse settings including agencies, institutions, and in private practice; collaborate with the local communities; promote a more just and human society through service learning and service projects; commit to ongoing program evaluation; advocate for their clients and the counseling profession; and, engage in continuing professional development. Professional School Counseling Program The counseling program faculty is equally committed to preparing candidates to be knowledgeable, competent, reflective and ethical Professional School Counselors. Faculty prepare candidates to work in diverse school environments; advocate care and support for all students; develop comprehensive school counselor programs based on the standards of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA Model) and adopted by the Louisiana Department of Education; collaborate with parents, school administrators and community agencies; commit to lifelong professional development; and promote a more just and humane society as leaders of the school counseling profession. The school counseling program is accredited by the National council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). 8

Professional Counseling Welcome to the Xavier University the Division of Education and Counseling. You have chosen to begin a journey with the goal of becoming a professional counselor. Counseling can be a worthwhile, fulfilling profession for those who are interested in promoting the well-being of clients in a variety of settings. As outlined in the following definition and discussion of professional counseling by the American Counseling Association, being a professional counselor carries an enormous responsibility and commitment. According to 20/20: A Vision for the Future of Counseling, the delegates comprised of 31 counseling organizations agreed upon a unified definition of counseling: Professional counseling is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals (ACA, 2013). 12

13 What is professional counseling? Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Professional counselors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen selfesteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health. Professional counseling is the application of mental health, psychological or human development principles, through cognitive affective, and behavioral or systemic interventions, strategies that address wellness, personal growth, and/or career development, as well as pathology. Using a wellness model and incorporating spirituality enables clients to fully access all the dimensions of their personality. To prepare for this challenging career, professional counselors undergo extensive education and clinical training. This includes at least a Master s Degree and field training with a solid foundation in research methodology, techniques and theories, human growth and development, career and lifestyle development, social and cultural foundations, group work, ethics, assessment and diagnosis, practicum and internship. Professional counselors serve at all levels of schools and universities, in hospitals and mental health agencies, rehabilitation facilities, business and industry, correctional institutions, religious organizations and agencies, community and private practice settings. Counseling Licensure and Certification All graduate students should plan at the outset of their program to become licensed as professional counselors in Louisiana or another jurisdiction in which they plan to live and work. In addition, since Louisiana uses the NBCC examination for licensure, it is recommended that graduate students apply to become National Certified Counselors (NCC). Students who plan to work as school counselors will be required to become certified as school counselors by the state of Louisiana. National Certification and State Licensure (NBCC) 13
