Faculty and Students to Present at Prestigious Conference
Laura B. Kestemberg, Ph.D., Lori McAndrew, B.S., and Dayna White, B.S. have been selected to present at the American Counseling Association's (ACA) 2017 Conference and Expo in San Francisco, CA on March 17, 2017.
The session titled: Take a Breath, Take a Break: A Useful Meditation Toolkit for Beginning Counselors will focus on teaching beginning counselors useful tools to incorporate in their practice. Attendees will learn several creative techniques to bring to their counseling sessions and support them in their new careers.
"Our conference is successful when we provide a diverse offering of professional development and bold, timely content for today's well-rounded counseling professionals," said Dr. Catherine B. Roland, Ed.D, President of the American Counseling Association. "Kestemberg, McAndrew & White's contribution to the 2017 line up is both valued and sincerely appreciated," she added.
ACA's 2017 conference is expected to bring together more than 4,000 counseling students, licensed professional counselors, and counselor educators to learn, network, and unite as one profession poised to meet the evolving needs of our diverse society. This year's conference is historic in that it was relocated from its original location in Nashville specifically because the state of Tennessee passed a law allowing members of the counseling profession to discriminate against LGBTQ and other clients-in direct violation of ACA's Code of Ethics.
The American Counseling Association is a not-for-profit, professional and educational organization that is dedicated to the growth and enhancement of the counseling profession. Founded in 1952, ACA is the world's largest association exclusively representing professional counselors in various practice settings. Read more at: www.counseling.org.
