Male Counselors’ Experiences with Vulnerability in the Counseling Relationship
30-Minute Poster Session
Hannah Davis Kreider
How do male counselors experience vulnerability in their relationships with clients? Results from a study of 11 male counselors will be presented to address this question. The voices of male counselors are underrepresented in the counseling literature, and men make up less than 20 percent of our field. This poster session will present the lived experiences of research participants as well as information about how attendees can apply findings to their work with clients, colleagues, and supervisees.

Personality Traits of the American Counseling Association Leaders
30-Minute Poster Session
Bill E. Owenby, Delila Owens
Leaders are an integral part of organization success (Bass, 2008). Current research surrounds the effectiveness and outcomes of leaders yet is lacking on identifiable personality traits of counseling leaders (Rumsey, 2013). This study addressed this need by examining personality traits within ACA leadership positions to gain further representation of counseling leaders within an organization. Participants completed an online survey of the Five Factor Model (Goldberg, 1992), and a correlational analysis was conducted.

This study (N = 330) investigated the relationship between counselor education students’ supervisory relationship scores and the therapeutic alliance (TA). Supervisory relationship scores were related to the TA. Implications for counselor education and clinical supervision will be discussed.
