8 SCHOOL OF EDUCATION S CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK The NMHU School of Education believes in democratic access to an education, both theoretical and authentic, that allows the reflective learner to continue to develop cultural schemas and diverse cognitive processing skills to construct a knowledge base, practice skills and develop professional dispositions in authentic settings needed to excel in education, leadership, counseling or other self-determined endeavors. NMHU COUNSELING DEPARTMENT Master of Arts Degree New Mexico Highlands University offers a Master of Arts (MA) degree program with an emphasis in Professional Counseling, School Counseling or Rehabilitation Counseling. Students interested in working toward a graduate degree in counseling are encouraged to contact the Counseling Program, the NMHU Admissions Office, and the NMHU Graduate Office to receive the necessary forms and information concerning the application procedure. The licensed professional counseling emphasis area is designed to meet requirements set by the New Mexico Counseling and Therapy Practice Board for licensure as a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC).The school counseling emphasis area is designed to meet requirements for licensure in school counseling set by the State of New Mexico Public Education Department. The rehabilitation counseling emphasis is designed to meet requirements set by the National Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification for certified rehabilitation counselors. The rehabilitation counseling emphasis also meets requirements for Licensed Rehabilitation Counselor in the schools set by the State of New Mexico Public Education Department. Mission of the Counseling Department The mission is the NMHU Counselor Education Program is to train entry-level counselors who are prepared for positions in community service agencies as mental health counselors, in school systems as school counselors, or in rehabilitation settings as rehabilitation counselors. Throughout their program of training, the emphasis is on the growth and development of each student to promote a positive self-concept and to maximize potential in all domains. The program is student-centered and outcomebased, seeking to train individuals who are skilled in working with diverse populations and who are ethical, competent, reflective practitioners. Proactive, knowledgeable, professional counselors are crucial to the growth of the profession. Counseling Department Philosophy The Counseling Department supports and promotes the following statements: 1. The professional counselor is a vital component in the mental health delivery system and the school system. 2. Effective professional counselors are client-centered and outcome-based. Effective 30 April August of 73

9 3. The growth and development of each person requires an ongoing daily interaction which promotes positive self-concept and mental health. 4. The highest level of ethics is required in order to experience the most effective counseling. 5. Team participation and cooperation are necessary to promote positive client outcomes. 6. Proactive, knowledgeable professional counselors are needed if counseling is to thrive and expand. 7. The personal and professional growth of each counselor directly affects all of us. Self-Awareness The counselor s self development is a vital ingredient in the helping relationship, and counselor trainees within the program understand the necessity for learning about themselves and their relationship with others. As such, the program emphasizes a personal and professional growth orientation. Students are expected to experience both professional and personal growth. To facilitate such growth, courses include self-awareness and self-exploration exercises which are used to enhance self-knowledge and awareness. Counseling Disposition Inventory Carl Rogers (1961) stated that the person of the counselor has a greater impact on the therapeutic process than the skills and techniques used. Cavanagh (1982) supported Rogers supposition indicating that the personality of the counselor is more important than skills and knowledge. In the counseling process, the person of the counselor is the instrument through which the services are provided. While different counselors may use the same techniques, the delivery of these techniques will not be the same because the instruments being used to deliver the services are not the same (Pierce, 2010, p. 48). 1 Students in the NMHU Counseling Program will be evaluated on the following dispositions several times throughout their programs to insure understanding and progress toward their future roles as counselors. 1. Empathy (the counselor senses accurately the feelings and personal meaning that the client is experiencing and communicates this acceptant understanding to the clients). 2. Genuineness (client is willing to be authentic, open, honest within the helping relationship). 1 ). Pierce, L. M. (2010). An Exploration of the Relationships among Wellness, Spirituality, and Personal Dispositions of Practicing Professional Counselors. PhD diss., University of Tennessee, graddiss/738 Effective 30 April August of 73

10 3. Acceptance (being able to regard clients unconditionally, despite differences in cultural heritage, values, or belief systems). 4. Open-Mindedness (freedom from fixed preconceptions and an attitude of open receptive that which the client is expressing). 5. Cognitive Complexity (ability to view an individual within both an individualistic and systemic framework). 6. Psychological Adjustment (willingness to self-reflect and promote one s psychological well-being). 7. Competence (monitoring one s effectiveness, knows when to consult with others, keeps current on newest trends in the field). 8. Sensitive to issues of diversity (competent in counseling diverse clients). Admission See NMHU Graduate Catalog. Counseling students can be admitted during Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.

This averages about 7 hours per week each week of the semester. Of those 7 hours, 2-3 hours per week must be direct client contact. One hour of supervision is required per Effective 30 April August of 73

20 week. Students on the Las Vegas campus are generally required to complete most of these hours at the Las Vegas Counseling Training Center. If attendance at an on-site Counseling Training Center is not available, or does not provide sufficient hours, the student will need to find an off-campus practicum site. In the practicum class, students are expected to have a minimum of 40 hours of direct client contact. The faculty person who conducts the practicum class can assign any other work he/she deems appropriate. Internship students must complete 300 clock hours of onsite work each semester. Internships typically run two semesters and the total number of hours on-site is 600. During the semester, 300 hours breaks down to roughly 20 hours per week on-site. Of that time, 40% (or 120 hours) must be in direct client contact, or approximately 8 hours of client contact per week. One hour of supervision is required per week. The time spent in the internship seminar will count toward the total hours. Each student must have an internship setting that is appropriate for his/her emphasis. In the case of dual emphases, the student will do one semester of internship at a site appropriate for each emphasis. For example, a student doing a dual emphasis in Professional Counseling and in School Counseling will do one semester in a community mental health center and one semester in a school setting. All internship students will come together for one classroom meeting every other week for the internship seminar. Students will meet with the faculty supervisor responsible for their respective emphasis. Goals & Learning Objectives The internship is designed to provide the student with an opportunity to practice and expand his or her counseling and/or guidance skills in a setting other than the university environment. The on-site supervisor will closely monitor student activities, provide effective and appropriate feedback, work co-operatively with the university supervisor, and encourage student participation in a variety of on-site activities. Students may also use on-site facilities at the university for group supervision sessions and continued expansion and evaluation of counseling skills through use of counseling labs, video and audio equipment, and supervision. During the internship, students will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to implementing and expanding the following skills: Establishing and maintaining client caseload Demonstration and application of appropriate counseling and/or guidance skills Development of specialized skills relevant to the requirements of the host site Establishing and maintaining effective working relationships with staff, supervisors and colleagues Demonstration of willingness to meet professional obligations Demonstration of enthusiasm and commitment to the counseling profession Demonstration of willingness to learn and sensitivity to feedback Effective 30 April August of 73
