Fostering Resilience: Preparing School Counselors-in-T raining to Support English Language Learners
Malti Tuttle, Leonissa V. Johnson, Erik Schmitt, and Chassity Todd
During practicum and internship experiences, school counselors-in-training may engage in counseling activities with diverse populations, including English language learners. High levels of need and limited training with this student population may result in low levels of resilience and self-efficacy for school counselors-in-training. Strategic and intentional support by counselor educators may bolster resilience in school counselors-in-training and yield needed counseling services for English language learners.
