    Dear University,

     I am a doctoral student at Argosy University working on my dissertation. My dissertation title is the Impact of the Supervisor's Education and License on the Professional Identity and Self-Efficacy of the Post-Graduate, Pre-Licensure Counselor in the Rocky Mountain Region.

    I am hoping to find counselors that are in the licensure process to take my survey. I am requesting your assistance in forwarding this email, which includes the Consent form with information for the participants, and the link to the survey.

    I am requesting this email be forwarded to graduates of your counseling program who graduated Fall of 2009-Summer 2011. I appreciate any help you are willing to provide.

    Consider joining counselor educators, counseling practitioners, and counseling graduate students for an institute in Bhutan. Bhutan is a fascinating country and its leaders have determined that the profession of counseling should be established to increase wellness in their country. The experience is scheduled for October 23 through November 4, 2012. Applications are now being accepted and the final deadline is June 1. 
    The purpose of the institute is to introduce American counselors to the country, to give counselors from the United States an opportunity to provide brief counseling-related services to the citizens of Bhutan, to teach counseling, and to set the stage for institute participants to return to Bhutan in the future to spend a semester or year teaching counselors and providing counseling-related services.
    The institute is offered by Old Dominion University. The National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) and the government of Bhutan are underwriting some of the expense of the institute and NBCC is instrumental in arranging logistics with the Royal Government. Counselor educators and counselors who are National Certified Counselors (NCCs) and who have the potential to return to Bhutan and work there as a counselor or counselor educator for an extended period of time (a semester, four months, or a year) without being paid for their services will be given preference. 
    If you are interested in applying, please send Dr. Remley an email message at and he will send you complete information and an application form.  We are seeking counselors and counselor educators who have international living experience and understanding of other cultures. This will not be a luxury trip, but it will be a true lifetime experience for those who attend.
