Title:
Check-In/Check-Out Intervention With Peer-Monitoring for a Student With Emotional-Behavioral Difficulties
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Hallie M. Smith, PhD; Tawny N. Evans-McCleon, PhD; Brooke Urbanski; and Cheryl Justice, PhD
Description:
Providing intervention services to students with emotional-behavioral difficulties (EBD) in the educational setting can be challenging and typically requires collaboration among a number of individuals. The authors used an A-B single-case research design to examine the effectiveness of a check-in/check-out intervention with peer monitoring on the behavior of an elementary student with EBD when using a high school student as a peer monitor. Findings indicated that both students benefited from the intervention.
Learning Objectives:
1.Explore the check-in/check-out (CICO) intervention with peer-monitoring.
2.Review the effectiveness of the check-in/check-out (CICO) intervention with elementary students experiencing emotional-behavioral difficulties.

Choosing Assessment Instruments for PTSD Screening

Title:
Choosing Assessment Instruments for PTSD Screening and Outcome Research
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Gerta Bardhoshi, PhD; Kelly Duncan, PhD; Bradley T. Erford, PhD; Beth Dummett; Michelle Falco, MEd
Description:
Effect-size results from Erford et al.’s (2016) meta-analysis for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) were used to compare 6 instruments’ usefulness in measuring counseling treatment outcomes. Effect-size comparisons indicated equivalent overall effect sizes using the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale, the Impact of Event Scale•Revised, the Posttraumatic Stress Diagnostic Scale, the PTSD Checklist, and the Structured Interview for PTSD. The Mississippi Scale for Combat-Related PTSD yielded significantly more conservative (i.e., lower) effect-size comparisons.
Learning Objectives:
1.Examine the utility of six PTSD assessment instruments
2.Understand how these assessment tools can be used for PTSD screening and outcome research

Cyber Sexual Assault: An Extension of Gender- Based Violence

Title:
Cyber Sexual Assault: An Extension of Gender- Based Violence and Sexual Trauma
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Kelley Holladay, PhD, Bryce Hagedorn, PhD, and Kristina Nelson, PhD
Description:
With the recent phenomena of cyber sexual assault and the lack of laws and a comprehensive knowledge of cyber sexual assault can have a devastating impact on victims’ psychological well-being. Findings from a quantitative study measuring the impact of cyber sexual assault will be shared. This seminal work serves to engage counselor educators in challenging how we define trauma as well as to provide empirical support that serves to guide how future clinicians are prepared for both evaluation and treatment of cyber sexual assault.
Learning Objectives:
1.Increase counselors and counselor educators’ awareness of the definition of Cyber Sexual Assault; as well as the role of technology in violence against women. Cyber-sexual assault (e.g., “nonconsensual pornography” or “revenge porn”) is the nonconsensual sharing of sexually explicit images online, through social medial, or other forms of technology. Technology has impacted violence against women through avenues like cyber-harassment and cyber-stalking, and cyber-sexual assault is another form of technology-based violence that occurs within relationships.
2.Provide resources for counselors and counselor educators to utilize when working with clients who have experienced cyber-sexual assault. This extensive handout will include: (a) research with supporting references, (b) counseling implications/interventions, and (c) references to include specialists in legal support, photo removal, and counseling.
3.Increase counselors and counselor educators' awareness about the symptoms survivors may experience post cyber sexual assault, and how these mimic trauma. Thus, the third goal is to disseminate research findings regarding the psychological aftermath for survivors of cyber-sexual assault. Specifically, four theoretical constructs derived from sexual assault outcome literature established this research study on the mental health outcomes of cyber-sexual assault victims: (a) emotional dysregulation, (b) depression, (c) trauma guilt, and (d) PTSD. It is well documented that the trauma of sexual assault is longstanding, generating numerous mental health issues (e.g., sexual dysfunction, depression, suicidality, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, emotional dysregulation, and trauma guilt) among survivors (Eaton et al., 2004; Kubany et al., 1996; Russel & Davis, 2007). Similarly, researchers have now identified mental health consequences among victims of cyber-sexual assault.

Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Charles Crews, PhD; Tara Fox, MA; and Katye Clark, MEd
Description:
National datasets show a severe shortage of mental health providers in rural communities. The presenters will discuss current trends in the delivery of counseling and other mental health services to rural clients and communities.

This session will help counselors to connect with the most current and up- to-date practices for the delivery of evidenced-based mental health services for clients in rural areas.
Learning Objectives:
1.Identify models for delivery of mental health services in rural areas and critically examine current literature on rural mental health.
2.Explore challenges faced by clients and providers within rural populations and develop stronger working relationships with rural mental health providers.

Examining Coping and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury

Title:
Examining Coping and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury Among Adolescents: A Profile Analysis
Presenter(s)/Author(s):
Amanda L. Giordano; Elizabeth A. Prosek; Erika L. Schmit; and Michael K. Schmit
Description:
In the U.S., an estimated 72% of adolescents hospitalized in an inpatient unit reported a history of NSSI, and 85.3% of adolescents explicitly hospitalized due to a suicidal attempt or ideation in the past month reported NSSI (Giordano et al., 2022). Given the prevalence of NSSI among adolescent populations, it is important to understand the characteristics of those who engage in NSSI compared to those who do not. For counselors, explained Giordano et al., one important characteristic to consider is coping strategies. This Continuing Professional Development resource provides counselors with a rationale to: (1) know differences in coping strategies between adolescents with a history of nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) and those without, (2) understand the relationship between coping and NSSI, and (3) recognize implications to inform clinical practice and future studies.
Learning Objectives:
1. Know differences in coping strategies between adolescents with a history of nonsuicidal self-injury (NSSI) and those without, 2. Understand the relationship between coping and NSSI, 3. Recognize implications to inform clinical practice and future studies.
