Counselor education students train outside the classroom


Students in two counselor education classes left the classroom behind Sept. 9 for an experience in team building and accomplishing tasks that require group effort and group decision-making. Counselor education faculty members Dr. Scott Glass and Dr. Allison Crowe led the 40 or so students for the half-day program at ECU’s Team Training Center near Blount Fieldhouse.

The group procedures course in which they are enrolled is a class for master’s level counseling students that introduces them to group counseling theory and practice. Glass specializes in adventure based counseling and Crowe specializes in creative and experiential techniques.

“Experiential learning is so important for counselors. You never know what you’re going to get in a counseling session,” Crowe said. “Your client may surprise you, may react to you in the moment – the more you can refine your skills in the ‘here and now,’ the better.”

  1. May I simply just say what a relief to discover someone who
    really understands what they’re discussing over the internet.

    You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people have to look at this and understand this side of
    your story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular given that you certainly have the
    gift.

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
    be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am
    looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  3. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thanks, However I am
    experiencing difficulties with your RSS. I don’t
    understand why I am unable to join it. Is there anybody else getting identical
    RSS issues? Anybody who knows the answer will you kindly respond?
    Thanx!!

  4. I will be using what I learned during this team building in my own groups that I facilitate at school.

    Thank you for the experience!
