Counselor Community Engagement (CCE) is a collaborative process whereby counselors and community members identify, plan, and execute strategies that promote wellness and human dignity within the community. Although Chi Sigma Iota (CSI) has an established framework for CCE inspired by Dr. Jane Myers (10 Key Considerations), no study has explored the use of this framework in practice. This webinar will discuss the methods used within a directive content analysis to examine the 2013-2014 CSI Chapter CCE activities (n=247). Discussion will include the degree to which the 10 Key Considerations reflect CCE activities, and suggestions to refine the framework to support purposeful engagement and advocacy with individuals, groups and communities. Implications for practice, and suggestions for future research will be provided.
1. Audience members will understand how to use the 10 Key Considerations as a framework to conduct Counselor Community Engagement Activities within their respective chapters.
2. Audience members will have a better understanding of how to report Counselor Community Engagement Activities in their annual reports to CSI Headquarters.
3. Audience members will have a stronger understanding of what types of CCE activities are being conducted across large and small chapters.
