ACES Keynote

Beyond 20/20: Refocusing Our Vision to Optimize the Counseling Profession

Thursday, October 12

Presented by Dr. Casey Barrio Minton

The counseling profession has many strengths and much to celebrate, yet we find ourselves at a critical crossroads. This crossroads calls for counselor educators, supervisors, and leaders to build on these foundations while innovating for the future. Step into three shadows as we explore three areas in need of attention if we are to realize our potential as a profession. Explore opportunities for (1) promoting counselor identity while also engaging transdisciplinary context, (2) honoring foundations while also modernizing curricula, and (3) giving voice to experiences while also engaging research that builds on thought leadership to establish an evidence-base that is uniquely our own.

Casey A. Barrio Minton PhD, NCC, is Professor of Counselor Education and Interim Head of the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her scholarly work focuses on crisis intervention, clinical mental health issues, and professionalization through teaching and leadership.  Dr. Barrio Minton is author or editor of books including Practical Approaches to Applied Research and Program Evaluation for Helping Professionals, the DSM-5-TR Learning Companion for Counselors, Professional Counseling Excellence through Leadership and Advocacy (now in 2nd edition), and Critical Incidents in Counselor Education. Founding editor of the Journal of Counselor Leadership and Advocacy, Dr. Barrio Minton is a Past-President of Chi Sigma Iota International, the Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling, the Southern Association for Counselor Education and Supervision, and the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision. She is a Fellow of the American Counseling Association.
