The Counselor: Winter 2018

One of my favorite volunteer gigs right now is that I get to edit the quarterly newsletter of Oregon’s chapter of the American Counseling Association. It’s been fun to revamp this small journal’s content to focus on issues surrounding social justice as they relate to the counseling profession in Oregon. And it’s always a huge blast to find and reach out topotential contributors and advertisers, edit content, and manage/do all of the design and layout. If you’re interested in issues affecting this field and this work, check out the winter edition of The Counselor, out today 🙂 


Happy February, Oregon Counselors!

We hope you enjoy our winter issue of The Counselor.

A couple months back, we solicited articles for a special issue, Focus On: Effective Advocacy Approaches, and we’re grateful that so many of you chose to write to us and share a part of your story. Because of you, this month we’re pleased to share some really insightful perspectives on clinical strategies for work with particular populations.
