Hi Everyone -

One of our staff counselors will be going on maturity leave later this semester and I am hoping to be able to fill her hours with another therapist who would be willing to work part-time, on a temporary basis.

If you know of anyone (who is good, of course) who would be interested in this temporary position, please let me know. We would likely need
this person from approximately November 1, 2005 - January
27, 2006. The position would be for 24 hours/week .

Also, I would be interested in hearing from those of you who have hired

counselors and paid them on an hourly basis. (The above position would not get additional benefits.) What hourly rate did you pay them?

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Dear Colleagues:

The Department of Psychology is searching for five new faculty members this year. The ad is posted at www.psych.umn.edu. Review of applications will begin on October 19th but applications will be accepted throughout 2005. Appointment can be in any area of the Department, and we are eager to have a strong pool of counseling psychology candidates. Please encourage students who will have completed their Ph.D.s by September 2006 to consider our position as well as new professionals who may be interested in living in the thriving Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. Appointments may occur at all levels so we also encourage associate and full professors to consider applying.

Our department is very eager to hire candidates who may contribute to more than one area: a few examples include the intersection of counseling psychology and occupational health psychology, counseling and multicultural research, counseling and individual differences, counseling and personality, counseling and vocational psychology, and counseling and health psychology.

Salaries are competitive, start up packages are generous and the Twin Cities area is a great place to live.

Misc.

Greetings from South Dakota State University! I’m writing on behalf of the Department of Counseling and Human Resource Development inviting you to participate in a conference call to discuss the potential development of a regional counseling journal. I know discussions have been happening about this at various levels in the region. This invitation is by no means an attempt to undo work that has been completed or ideas already underway. We at SDSU have talked regularly about the strengths of an idea like this and the faculty here have requested that I initiate a dialogue with other regional schools regarding this idea.

Thus, I’m inviting various representatives from around the region to join in on an initial dialogue about this topic on Tuesday, October 4 @ noon. In order to participate, please contact me by Friday, September 30 with your phone number. We will have our switchboard call you on Tuesday at a number of your choosing if you are available and want to participate. If you cannot participate, but have fellow faculty members who would like to participate, please have them contact me with their phone number.

This initial contact for the meeting is through personal acquaintances and contacts from university web-sites. It is by no means meant to be conclusive or exclusive. I look forward to initiating a dialogue with you or a colleague about a regional counseling journal on Tuesday, October 4 at noon.

Sincerely,
Jay Trenhaile, Ed.D.

Dear Colleagues,

Our Academic Vice President has ask us to contact colleagues to see if you might recommend an outstanding candidate, yourself included, of course, for the position of Dean, Arts and Sciences, here at St. Thomas.

Here is a note from the VP-

We are entering a critical phase in the search for the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Over the summer, I wrote to the presidents and provosts of the top 50 liberal arts colleges in the US and of 50 Catholic colleges and universities. We have placed ads in a number of print and on-line publications. During the month of September, our ad will appear twice in the Chronicle.

­­­­­­­­­­­­­___________________

I have attached the description below –

DEAN, COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES

University of St. Thomas

St. Paul, Minnesota


The University of St. Thomas seeks nominations and applications for the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. UST is committed to teaching excellence and vibrant faculty scholarship. Growth and diversification over the last decade offers an excellent opportunity for a dean with vision and energy to exercise creative leadership. The college, through its 247 full-time faculty, provides the core curriculum for the university’s 5,000 undergraduates and offers nearly 60 majors in twenty-five academic departments. The College also offers master’s programs in English, Art History, Music and Catholic Studies.

The University of St. Thomas is Minnesota’s largest private university, with a combined undergraduate and graduate enrollment of just over 11,000 students. A Catholic and urban university, St. Thomas seeks to develop morally responsible individuals who combine career competency with cultural awareness and intellectual curiosity. As the university continues to develop outstanding regionally and nationally recognized academic programs and support services, it seeks to strengthen its ties to the local community, particularly the ethnically diverse cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. In the words of our mission statement, the College seeks to educate students “to become morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good.”

The college is committed to a core liberal arts foundation, to the integration of the liberal arts and career education, and to the spiritual, intellectual, ethical and social development of all students, preparing them to meet the challenges of our globally interdependent society. Over 50% of undergraduates study internationally in short-term or semester-long programs. The college increasingly emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, community-based learning, and faculty-student research collaboration through multiple strategies of student engagement and inquiry-based learning

In collaboration with the faculty and staff, the dean is responsible for developing and implementing a compelling vision in support of the missions of the university and the college. The dean is responsible for fostering excellence in teaching, scholarly activity and professional engagement and service. As the university enters planning for a capital campaign, the dean will be a leader in the fund-raising outreach on behalf of the liberal arts. Given the increasing diversity of the region primarily served, the dean must be prepared to be a leader in developing programs and recruitment strategies that will more fully embrace diversity on campus.

The dean, who reports directly to the Executive Vice President & Chief Academic Officer, interacts extensively with the administration, the faculty, students and the community. The dean is responsible for facilitating curriculum development; for promoting faculty achievement; for fiscal planning, development and management; and, as part of the community of deans, for contributing to university-wide strategic planning. Academic qualifications commensurate with appointment as a tenured full professor in an arts and sciences discipline are required. The successful candidate must demonstrate evidence of creativity and accomplishment, employ a collaborative management style, and be able to support enthusiastically the mission of the university.

Applicants should electronically submit a letter of application (refer to position #102003), a resume/curriculum vita, and names of three references at: www.stthomas.edu/hr, or mail to: Search Chair, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, University of St. Thomas, Mail #AQU217, 2115 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105. Review of applications will begin October 10th, 2005.

The University of St. Thomas is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer. Women, persons of color, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply

The position will be advertised in the Chronicle shortly.

In the meantime, if you do know a person you would highly recommend for this position, would you please back channel it to me and I will pass it on to the Academic Vice President – I believe the plan is that that person would then be contacted to see if he or she is interested in the position perhaps a personal letter. I’m not sure about the process at that point.

In any case, that’s in advance for any help you might provide.

Scholarships

Graduate Student Scholarships for Guy Bond Memorial Conference on Struggling Readers

The Center for Reading Research will provide 10 - 20 awards to graduate students to enable them to attend the Bond Conference on Interventions for Struggling Readers at no cost. The conference is scheduled for October 10-11 at the University of Minnesota Continuing Education Center on the St Paul campus. The Bond conference will bring in many of the nation's experts on development of reading skills and on instructional interventions to use with students (especially students with limited English proficiency or disabilities) who struggle learning to read. The agenda for the conference is available at www.education.umn.edu/reading.

Attendance at the Bond Conference will provide our graduate students with a very unique opportunity to hear so many outstanding professionals focus on what their research says about how to intervene with struggling readers. The conference provides considerable opportunity for discussion among participants, and our students would gain from an opportunity to interact with area teachers, reading specialists and professors. We are offering these awards as an incentive to enable as many students as possible to attend the meeting. The cost of the meeting is $60 and this cost will be waived for students who are selected for the awards.

To apply for these awards, students must submit a one paragraph statement (maximum 250 words) indicating why they believe they should be selected and how they would benefit from attendance at this meeting. Individuals who have previously registered and who are selected for this scholarship will have the cost of registration refunded. Those selected for the award are expected to attend the full conference, attending all day on Monday and Tuesday October 10-11.

The deadline for application is 5 pm Tuesday September 27. Applications should be submitted by email to Professor Jim Ysseldyke, Co-Director of the Reading Research Center. The email address is jim@umn.edu. Any questions should be directed to that same email address.

Misc.

There are two upcoming Social Justice Leadership Retreats - one in November and one in January - sponsored by UMN Housing and Residential Life. I will be a facilitator at the one in November.

They still have a lot of openings for student participants. If you're a student or know a student who might want to go to this, it's a fantastic opportunity. All expenses except the $20 materials fee are paid - and scholarships are available to cover that fee if needed. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.

Misc.

Last academic year, a group of faculty and staff put together the first Social Justice Leadership Retreat. The 3 day retreat took 40 students along with 12 faculty/staff facilitators away from campus to explore issues of identity, privilege,and oppression and to focus on how to make an impact on campus after the retreat.  The retreat was extremely successful and those who attended and facilitated last year have worked hard to expanded the program this year into 2 retreats, November 4-6 and January 14-16.  This year we also plan to bring 64 students and 16 facilitators to each retreat.
Please see our website for more details on this year's retreats.

http://www.housing.umn.edu/events/socialjustice/

We need your help in spreading the word about the retreat to students, faculty, and staff who are interested in and/or committed to diversity, social justice, and addressing campus climate issues.  Here are some specifics on how you can be of assistance and support this effort.

1.  Apply Yourself - Faculty/staff can apply to facilitate at either retreat and students can apply to attend either retreat.  The experiences of facilitating and attending the retreat are equally powerful and life changing.  We are looking for facilitators who have some experience with these issues and have an interest in helping students dialogue about diversity and social justice.  This is not your typical conference style retreat, there are few lectures or presentations.  The focus is on small group conversations and large group simulations.  Students from all identities, colleges, classes, etc. are welcome and encouraged to apply.

2.  Nominate Students - We are in the process of collecting nominations of students that would be interested or ideal candidates to attend the retreat.
 People do not need to be nominated to apply, but this is one of our best ways of getting the word out to students.  Please send me the names of any students that you would like to nominate.

3.  Spreading the Word - We really need all of your help in spreading the word about the retreat.  So please email our website to people you know and groups you work with, email me some student nominations, and consider emailing a faculty/staff member encouraging them to facilitate.

Thank you all in advance for your time and support. Please let me know if you have any questions,

Fellowships

Foundation for Child Development Invites Proposals for Young Scholars Program Focusing on Immigrant Children. Through the FCD Young Scholars Program (YSP), the Foundation for Child Development provides approximately four fellowships of up to $150,000 each over a maximum period of three-years to study issues affecting the development of young immigrant children in the United States. The program aims to stimulate basic and policy-relevant research focused on the early education, health, and well-being of immigrant children from birth to age ten, particularly those who are living in low-income families. FCD is particularly interested in research that can inform policies regarding the health and education needs of young newcomer children. Proposals may include research designs for an empirical study, pilot work for a larger-scale research project that will seek additional funding from other public and private funders, or analysis of data previously collected.
DEADLINE: November 1, 2005

Research Participation

I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Kentucky in the
counseling psychology program and I am collecting data for completion of
my dissertation. The web-based survey I am using involves psychology
trainees' perceptions of the effects of humor in clinical supervision.
The study targets students in APA accredited programs who have received
clinical supervision. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to
complete. The collected data will hopefully contribute to the field's
understanding of positive psychology within clinical supervision.

The study has been approved both by my advisory committee (chaired by
Dr. William Stilwell) and by the Institutional Review Board of the
University of Kentucky.

If you would like to preview the survey please click on the following

Dear colleague:

I am a graduate student at McGill University. My supervisor, Dr. Martin Drapeau, and I would like to invite you to participate in a study examining how personality is associated with therapists’ choice of theoretical orientation. This project has been approved by the ethics review board at McGill University.

This study is in partial fulfillment of my M.A. thesis requirements. My graduation from this program, next spring, is wholly dependent on successful completion of this research. So, please take a few minutes to complete this brief online questionnaire. The study will only take about 10 minutes of your time.

The responses you provide are completely confidential. Even the researchers have no way of tracing responses back to you as random codes are assigned to each participant.

PhD Student Info

Dear CSPP doctoral students:

Greetings!

CSPP faculty and staff would like to continue to provide a way for students to regularly share their concerns, ideas, and other feedback. One way this kind of dialogue between students and faculty has taken place is by the election of student representatives. This year we would have 2 student representatives for each of the following cohort: the 1st year MA. cohort, the 2nd year M.A. cohort, and the Ph.D cohort. As it is almost an impossible task to get all doctoral students together, the election will be conducted via emails. Please think about people who you would like to nominate (self-nomination is also accepted), and email your nominations to me by next Wednesday 5:00 p.m.. Please also refer to the paragraphs below for the duties of student representatives.

Thank you very much!

Duties of CSPP Student Representatives:

Student representatives attend and participate in Student and Faculty Representative meetings. Although these meetings are public, and open to all students and faculty, it is the responsibility of the representatives to attend. Meetings are typically held once every two weeks during the academic year. Scheduling of the meetings will be done to accommodate as much as possible representatives’ schedules.

The primary duties of student representatives include bringing information from the faculty group to all graduate students, and bringing concerns and ideas to the faculty group as appropriate. The job of the student representatives will be to meet with Dr. Turner and Dr. Wahl to help formulate activities, provide consultation to the faculty group on broader issues, and represent student viewpoints on appropriate issues.

Primary issues of discussion during these Representative meetings are: What do the CSPP graduate students need on a programmatic level in order to function more effectively; and what do students need on a programmatic level in order to better meet their educational and career goals. Issues that pertain to individual classes and/or faculty members will not be handled or discussed in these meetings or by student representatives.
