Dr. Carrie Wachter Morris is a firm believer that school counselors can change the world, one child at a time. She is passionate about learning how to help counselors learn how to collaborate and team with other educational and mental health professionals, families, and students to create school environments that support the whole child. In her research, she strives to understand how counselors can prevent and intervene in a broad variety of crisis situations, and she works to understand how counselor educators can best train future counseling practitioners and counselor educators. She is currently the President of the Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling, and she serves on the editorial boards of Counselor Education & Supervision and Professional School Counseling. She teaches the capstone school counseling course, a doctoral advanced theories course, and supervises clinical experiences. She has recently received regional recognition for her teaching.
