    Dear RMACES Members,

    I hope this letter finds you doing well.  We're excited that you've decided to join us at The Westgate Resort and Spa in Park City, Utah.  The conference committee has worked hard to put together an exciting 2012 RMACES  Conference.  We hope that you will enter into the spirit of the conference theme, "Transformation and Integration: Creating Connections" and allow yourself to be transformed by engagement with sessions, receptions, meetings, new experiences, and new thoughts and ideas.  You can then return to your work refreshed, renewed and transformed and begin the work of integration.  

     The conference committee believes that there is something for everyone who chooses to attend and become engaged with the offerings.  Moreover, the conference will be a place to see familiar faces, build new relationships, mentor and be mentored, contribute to the counseling profession, while being immersed in both direct and indirect learning experiences.  With an open mind and open heart you may create connections that will be meaningful to you personally and professionally in our ever-changing world.

    We anticipate that your own professional development will be greatly enhanced through your presence and participation in the 2012 conference experience.   I recently came across a First Nations saying that resonated with me: “Remember your teachings.”  Perhaps remembering that the work we do in the counseling profession can make a difference in the world will add even more depth to your experience as we gather together.

    While I am grateful to all of the conference committee members, I would especially like to thank Dr. Penny Dahlen, Past-President of RMACES, whose assistance in conference planning was invaluable.
    Thanks, too, to the many doctoral students who freely volunteered their time and positive energy.

    We especially welcome our own Dr. Nicole Hill, President of ACES, and Dr. Robin Lee, President-Elect of ACES.  Please attend their Town Hall Meeting for the latest ACES update to learn what is happening nationally in the field of counselor education and supervision.

    Please join us at the Welcoming Reception, Graduate Student Reception, and President's Reception.  We look forward to seeing you.

    Warm regards,

    Bobbie Birdsall
    2012 RMACES President

    Dear Colleagues:

    My name is Kristy Eldredge. I am a doctoral student working on my dissertation in the Counselor Education and Supervision program at Argosy University. My research project specifically addresses trauma sensitive supervision and its impact on complex trauma cases. For this purpose, I am seeking participation from mental health professionals who have treated complex trauma for 10 years or less. If you have more than 10 years of experience treating complex trauma, I thank you for your time and look forward to working with you on future studies.


     


    Note: In this case, complex trauma is defined as traumas that are chronic, relational, occur at a developmentally sensitive time period, are perpetrated by persons such as caregivers/family members/partners, and/or involved a sense of entrapment. Examples include child abuse, ongoing sexual abuse, interpersonal violence, war experiences, and torture.

     

    As a complex trauma worker myself, I see a great need for mental health professionals to be aware of the implications of supervision on these cases. I would love for you to participate in the research study. Below is a link that will take you to the questionnaire that should take about 15 minutes to complete. If you are a leader of a professional organization, and are willing, please send this email to your members, as well.
    I appreciate your help!

    Hello and Welcome to the RMACES Website,

    It is an exciting year for RMACES. The Website is our big project right now so I hope you can find everything you need on the links.

    We had a summer RMACES Executive Council Meeting and out of that as a gift to us before she moved on to become ACES President-Elect; Nicole Hill developed a RMACES scholarship review form and process.  This process was implemented this fall for the RMACES Scholars program. We had an excellent applicant pool for our RMACES scholars for the ACES 2011 conference.  The applicants picked who were very active in the conference including presenting and volunteering.  Congratulations to the following recipients:

    • Lisa Forbes,  University of Northern Colorado
    • Brett Shumway, New Mexico State University
    • Diane Stutey, University of Northern Colorado
    • Tyler Kimbel – University of Northern Colorado 

    Tyler has also landed the research position with CACREP – Congratulations!

    • Kylie Rogalla  -University of Northern Colorado
    • Rebecca Pender, Idaho  State University
    • Rebecca Tadlock –Idaho State University
    • Steven DeMille – Utah, Capella University
    • Christen McClure  Idaho State University
    • Wendi Seger -  Adams State College yes

    My goal this year is to connect more of us through social networking which includes this new website as well as Facebook. 

    Bobbie Birdsall will take over the RMACES presidency in summer 2012 and is in charge of the fall 2012 conference. Details for the conference will be posted on the website soon. 

    We also have the great task of planning and helping with the ACES National Conference which will be held in Denver in 2013.  Heather Helm is taking charge of this conference.  Congratulations to Jennifer Murdock who will be RMACES president during the national conference year in 2013-14.

    I welcome your thought and ideas as we move forward with our website. I have hired Sarah Houy to develop and manage the website. She is a recent graduate in counseling with a strong background in marketing.  It is my hope that the website will provide all our needed connections and information.  Please see membership reports for current meeting minutes.  You will also see a “Join Link” where members can now join through the website and not just at a conference.   If you have feedback or need assistance, please feel free to contact me at info@rockymountainaces.com.

    Peace to all,

    Penny Dahlen

    RMACES President 2011-2012
