Congratulations to Dr. Devdass Sunnassee on his awards from North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA) for his projects “NC Bar Contract for Paralegal Exams (2017-2018)” and “NC Bar Contract for Specialty Exams (2017-2018).”

The September 2017 issue of Counselor Education and Supervision [56(3)] includes some informative studies from CED-affiliated authors:
Laura Welfare (alum, counselor educator at Virginia Tech) and her coauthors present results of a study of the implications of Title IX for counselor educators and their awareness of those implications around requirements to report student disclosures – including disclosures by both master’s students and undergraduate volunteer clients – about gender-based discrimination, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, trauma in general, and hazing.  Check out “Counselor Education and Title IX: Current Perceptions and Questions” (pp. 193-207).
Drs. Borders, Cashwell, Welfare, and a coauthor report the results of a CQR study about doctoral supervisors’ experiences providing constructive feedback and confrontation in their interactions with their master’s student supervisees during their clinical supervision internship.  Even experienced supervisors find providing such feedback awkward and uncomfortable; what did new supervisors report?  Check out “New Supervisors’ Struggles and Successes with Corrective Feedback” (pp. 208-224).
