Seeking Three Group Observers in EPSY 8404: Group Counseling: Theory, Application, and Skills

CSPP students (2nd year MA and Doctoral students):

I am looking for three group observers for EPSY 8404: Group Counseling: Theory, Application, and Skills, during Spring semester 2013. Group observers will be asked to observe a simulated counseling group of students enrolled in EPSY 8404, process the group with group members after each session, and meet with other group observers and the instructor after class for a short debriefing period. Observers must have completed EPsy 8404 or its equivalent. This is an unpaid experience, and unfortunately, I cannot offer academic credit at this time. However, the time commitment is minimal and the experience can help you to improve or maintain group skills as you move forward into advanced practicum placement, internship, or another training setting.

Group observers would need to be available from 5:30-7:30 pm on eight Thursday evenings throughout Spring semester. Dates include: 2/14, 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, 3/14, 3/28, 4/4, and 4/11. There will be a short training meeting arranged prior to 2/14. While I am new to teaching this course, as a former CSPP MA and Ph.D. student, I remember the simulated group experience as a useful learning tool. CSPP students in past years have commented that participating as a group observer has strengthened their group counseling skills, as well as provided preparation for the MA comp exam. If you are interested in this experience, please contact me via my email below.

Thank you,
Julia Conkel Ziebell

Project Medishare

Request for ICISF CISM Trained Personnel

Dear Colleagues,
We are organizing a planned mental health support team for Haiti with the first deployment potentially scheduled for February 2, 2010 with rotations following thereafter. The mental health teams will be partnering with Project Medishare http://www.projectmedishare.org/who-are-we/
a non-government organization that has been in Haiti since 1994 providing health and other much needed services.
Project Medishare staff will be our on the ground support and will be providing the lodging, sustenance, transportation, security, and translation for our team. Mental health teams will provide support at Project Medishare's sites. The teams will be working with children and their caregivers so I am looking for a wide range of skills. Psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, and other mental health professionals, and clergy. If you are NOT a mental health professional but have responded to a National disaster in the past, please provide me with your information. Deployment will be for 4-5 days.
What I am hoping to do is have enough people interested to be able to send people down in rotation with teams overlapping throughout for several weeks.
I will also designate a lead person/coordinator for each team when I can't be there. Project Medishare has private planes that have been donated for their use that leave from Miami daily to Haiti. We are currently working with airlines and other organizations to get team members to Miami. At this point we do not foresee a cost to the team member for transportation. If you know of other mental health professionals who have expressed an interest in deployment who have been trained in a disaster/crisis response model (ICISF-CISM, NOVA, or TLC) please forward this email to them.
Thanks.

Hello CSPP students

Please consider volunteering for this great annual event. These are the
key details:

WHAT: "Exploring Interests and Majors" (See end of email for complete
description).
WHEN: Wednesday, March 4, 2009, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
WHERE: Coffman Memorial Union, Great Hall.
WHO CAN COME: Any U of M, Twin Cities student (or staff) searching for a
major or an involvement opportunity.

Want to help? We'd love to have you! From CSPP we're looking for folks
interested in volunteering as interest inventory interpretors. Training
and support will be provided. Most find this brief inventory very
straightforward and easy to interpret. Past CSPP volunteers have
appreciated that this event offers both student contact and the
opportunity to network with other student services professionals.

To volunteer as an inventory interpreter, please contact Chris Buckley
at cbuckley@umn.edu or 612-625-9358 and include what 1-2 hour block of
time you're available to work on Wednesday, March 4, 2009, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Thanks!

Liz Hruska

***************************************************
WHAT IS "EXPLORING INTERESTS AND MAJORS"?
Here's a brief introduction:

1. Students stop into the Great Hall, take a 5 minute interest
inventory, sit down with an inventory interpretor and discuss the results.
2. Students then head to interest theme (RIASEC) tables in the center of
the Great Hall. At those tables, advising and info staff are available
to discuss U of M majors that fit with the student's interest themes (as
determined by the inventory results).
3. Students visit several "campus resources" tables set up on the
perimeter of the Great Hall. The tables have info on community
engagement, learning and academic skills assistance, wellness, study
abroad, etc.
4. Students report a high level of satisfaction with the event,
specifically due to the interest inventory interpretation, information
they receive on majors and involvement opportunities that fit with their
interests, and the individual interactions they are able to have with
career counseling and academic advising staff.
5. Staff working at the event enjoy the opportunity to work with
students and network with colleagues across collegiate units.

Dear Students and Faculty:

I'm writing to share a research opportunity offered by John Froelich, an experienced teacher who has developed the Looking at Learning tool (http://lookingatlearning.org) for observing and quantifying classroom activities. He is working with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) to determine which activity profiles predict greater than expected learning over time. He is seeking graduate students to help with classroom observation, research design, and statistical analysis. Faculty seeking grant and publication opportunities may be interested in collaborating with him on design, analysis, and tool validation. If you are willing to volunteer your time, John will train you to use the Looking at Learning tool and involve you in his established collaboration with MPS. See attached for more details. Please contact John directly if you are
interested: john.froelich@me.com.

TUTORING OPPORTUNITY AT BROADWAY HIGH SCHOOL IN MINNEAPOLIS

Broadway High School, an alternative school in North Minneapolis for pregnant and parenting mothers, is currently seeking tutors to help students pass basic standards tests so they can graduate. Many of our students are living in poverty and without consistent housing, and over 90% are of racial or ethnic minority status. Even an hour a week of volunteer tutoring could make a tremendous difference in the lives of not only our students, but also their children. Students in particular need of tutoring are currently functioning at below an 8th grade level in either reading or math, so anyone should be able to help regardless of their current area of study.

Please contact Chris Gregory, Broadway High School's Volunteer Coordinator, via e-mail at Christopher.Gregory@mpls.k12.mn.us or by phone at 612-290-2710.

Student volunteers are still critically needed to help host the Hospitality Suite at APA in New Orleans this year. In exchange for a 2-3 hour time commitment, students are eligible for free books, get to meet and greet divisional leaders, get an insider view of division initiatives, and enhance their professional service records.

Hi, fellow CSPPers:

I am looking for 2 or 3 volunteers to help next semester with a career class I will be teaching at the Hmong Academy, a charter high school in Minneapolis. This is my second year there, and the students and staff are great to work with. We will be working with 10th graders, and starting January 3rd - end of May (although you don't have to start until you're back for the semester). The classes will be on Tuesdays, between 12:50 - 3, and we will likely be working with two classes each Tuesday. I would love volunteers to be a part of planning this course, as well as helm a few classes, if they'd like. I also talked with Michael Goh, and you could probably use this setting to fulfill one of the project requirements in his sociocultural contexts class next semester. If you are interested, please email or call me at yang0369@umn.edu or 651-503-6719.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Pahoua Yang

Hello all,

There is a need for mental health volunteers now and for the foreseeable future in Mississippi. This information is from discussions I have had with a number of people in Mississippi over the past several weeks. They very much appreciate us helping them in their coordination efforts. The Mississippi Department of Mental Health and representatives from State Boards of Psychology, social work, counseling, and community mental health agencies (in consultation with federal agencies and national
groups) have coordinated to be able to better use much-needed volunteers. The first several weeks after Katrina, there were often a surplus of mental health (and other) volunteers at certain sites with nothing to do and no volunteers at others. There is a lot to do and this should allow us all to help. You do not have to be licensed, nor do you have to commit to a longer period.

Below is the information for those of you who might want to volunteer in Mississippi. Most of the need right now is at Disaster Recovery Centers in the coastal areas. At this point State of Mississippi has no funds to help with your expenses. You also need to be self-sustaining in terms of places to stay, etc. There is no minimum time commitment.

Individuals do not need to be licensed but should have some background in mental health...masters students in counseling or doctoral counseling psychology, etc. students are more than welcome. There is much to be done including outreach and giving basic information as well as counseling.

If anyone wants to volunteer, contact Kris Jones, LMSW (see message below). If you are licensed, they would also like you to contact the appropriate licensing board first (Kris or someone at Project Recovery can direct you).

Seeking Three Group Observers in EPSY 8404: Group Counseling: Theory, Application, and Skills

CSPP students (2nd year MA and Doctoral students):

I am looking for three group observers for EPSY 8404: Group Counseling: Theory, Application, and Skills, during Spring semester 2013. Group observers will be asked to observe a simulated counseling group of students enrolled in EPSY 8404, process the group with group members after each session, and meet with other group observers and the instructor after class for a short debriefing period. Observers must have completed EPsy 8404 or its equivalent. This is an unpaid experience, and unfortunately, I cannot offer academic credit at this time. However, the time commitment is minimal and the experience can help you to improve or maintain group skills as you move forward into advanced practicum placement, internship, or another training setting.

Group observers would need to be available from 5:30-7:30 pm on eight Thursday evenings throughout Spring semester. Dates include: 2/14, 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, 3/14, 3/28, 4/4, and 4/11. There will be a short training meeting arranged prior to 2/14. While I am new to teaching this course, as a former CSPP MA and Ph.D. student, I remember the simulated group experience as a useful learning tool. CSPP students in past years have commented that participating as a group observer has strengthened their group counseling skills, as well as provided preparation for the MA comp exam. If you are interested in this experience, please contact me via my email below.

Thank you,
Julia Conkel Ziebell

Project Medishare

Request for ICISF CISM Trained Personnel

Dear Colleagues,
We are organizing a planned mental health support team for Haiti with the first deployment potentially scheduled for February 2, 2010 with rotations following thereafter. The mental health teams will be partnering with Project Medishare http://www.projectmedishare.org/who-are-we/
a non-government organization that has been in Haiti since 1994 providing health and other much needed services.
Project Medishare staff will be our on the ground support and will be providing the lodging, sustenance, transportation, security, and translation for our team. Mental health teams will provide support at Project Medishare's sites. The teams will be working with children and their caregivers so I am looking for a wide range of skills. Psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, and other mental health professionals, and clergy. If you are NOT a mental health professional but have responded to a National disaster in the past, please provide me with your information. Deployment will be for 4-5 days.
What I am hoping to do is have enough people interested to be able to send people down in rotation with teams overlapping throughout for several weeks.
I will also designate a lead person/coordinator for each team when I can't be there. Project Medishare has private planes that have been donated for their use that leave from Miami daily to Haiti. We are currently working with airlines and other organizations to get team members to Miami. At this point we do not foresee a cost to the team member for transportation. If you know of other mental health professionals who have expressed an interest in deployment who have been trained in a disaster/crisis response model (ICISF-CISM, NOVA, or TLC) please forward this email to them.
Thanks.

For those wishing to GO TO Haiti to volunteer time/skills please e-mail:

Utilize the above e-mail for inquires or to forward your information to be considered for this mission. All inquiries and questions are to be sent to directly to Dr. Madhosingh.
Please do not contact ICISF for any additional clarification of this request.
We at ICISF appreciate your willingness to use your ICISF training to serve those in need within the Haiti disaster, and thus supporting one of our partner agencies in this response. If selected, you will be responding with project Medishare. Please be advised that this deployment is not an ICISF deployment, and is solely under the auspices of Project Medishare.

Hello CSPP students

Please consider volunteering for this great annual event. These are the
key details:

WHAT: "Exploring Interests and Majors" (See end of email for complete
description).
WHEN: Wednesday, March 4, 2009, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
WHERE: Coffman Memorial Union, Great Hall.
WHO CAN COME: Any U of M, Twin Cities student (or staff) searching for a
major or an involvement opportunity.

Want to help? We'd love to have you! From CSPP we're looking for folks
interested in volunteering as interest inventory interpretors. Training
and support will be provided. Most find this brief inventory very
straightforward and easy to interpret. Past CSPP volunteers have
appreciated that this event offers both student contact and the
opportunity to network with other student services professionals.

To volunteer as an inventory interpreter, please contact Chris Buckley
at cbuckley@umn.edu or 612-625-9358 and include what 1-2 hour block of
time you're available to work on Wednesday, March 4, 2009, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Thanks!

Liz Hruska

***************************************************
WHAT IS "EXPLORING INTERESTS AND MAJORS"?
Here's a brief introduction:

1. Students stop into the Great Hall, take a 5 minute interest
inventory, sit down with an inventory interpretor and discuss the results.
2. Students then head to interest theme (RIASEC) tables in the center of
the Great Hall. At those tables, advising and info staff are available
to discuss U of M majors that fit with the student's interest themes (as
determined by the inventory results).
3. Students visit several "campus resources" tables set up on the
perimeter of the Great Hall. The tables have info on community
engagement, learning and academic skills assistance, wellness, study
abroad, etc.
4. Students report a high level of satisfaction with the event,
specifically due to the interest inventory interpretation, information
they receive on majors and involvement opportunities that fit with their
interests, and the individual interactions they are able to have with
career counseling and academic advising staff.
5. Staff working at the event enjoy the opportunity to work with
students and network with colleagues across collegiate units.

Dear Students and Faculty:

I'm writing to share a research opportunity offered by John Froelich, an experienced teacher who has developed the Looking at Learning tool (http://lookingatlearning.org) for observing and quantifying classroom activities. He is working with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) to determine which activity profiles predict greater than expected learning over time. He is seeking graduate students to help with classroom observation, research design, and statistical analysis. Faculty seeking grant and publication opportunities may be interested in collaborating with him on design, analysis, and tool validation. If you are willing to volunteer your time, John will train you to use the Looking at Learning tool and involve you in his established collaboration with MPS. See attached for more details. Please contact John directly if you are
interested: john.froelich@me.com.

This group is for men on campus who are interested in learning what they can do to end violence against women. Whether it is gaining knowledge about the issue or educating others, this is an opportunity to grow as a leader among your peers to address sexism and sexual violence.

Since this group is brand new, you also have the opportunity to help shape its early foundations, mission statement, and purpose on campus. As more men take an active role in talking to other men about violence against women, your role on campus is needed to make a real difference.

TUTORING OPPORTUNITY AT BROADWAY HIGH SCHOOL IN MINNEAPOLIS

Broadway High School, an alternative school in North Minneapolis for pregnant and parenting mothers, is currently seeking tutors to help students pass basic standards tests so they can graduate. Many of our students are living in poverty and without consistent housing, and over 90% are of racial or ethnic minority status. Even an hour a week of volunteer tutoring could make a tremendous difference in the lives of not only our students, but also their children. Students in particular need of tutoring are currently functioning at below an 8th grade level in either reading or math, so anyone should be able to help regardless of their current area of study.

Please contact Chris Gregory, Broadway High School's Volunteer Coordinator, via e-mail at Christopher.Gregory@mpls.k12.mn.us or by phone at 612-290-2710.

Hi, fellow CSPPers:

I am looking for 2 or 3 volunteers to help next semester with a career class I will be teaching at the Hmong Academy, a charter high school in Minneapolis. This is my second year there, and the students and staff are great to work with. We will be working with 10th graders, and starting January 3rd - end of May (although you don't have to start until you're back for the semester). The classes will be on Tuesdays, between 12:50 - 3, and we will likely be working with two classes each Tuesday. I would love volunteers to be a part of planning this course, as well as helm a few classes, if they'd like. I also talked with Michael Goh, and you could probably use this setting to fulfill one of the project requirements in his sociocultural contexts class next semester. If you are interested, please email or call me at yang0369@umn.edu or 651-503-6719.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Pahoua Yang

Hello all,

There is a need for mental health volunteers now and for the foreseeable future in Mississippi. This information is from discussions I have had with a number of people in Mississippi over the past several weeks. They very much appreciate us helping them in their coordination efforts. The Mississippi Department of Mental Health and representatives from State Boards of Psychology, social work, counseling, and community mental health agencies (in consultation with federal agencies and national
groups) have coordinated to be able to better use much-needed volunteers. The first several weeks after Katrina, there were often a surplus of mental health (and other) volunteers at certain sites with nothing to do and no volunteers at others. There is a lot to do and this should allow us all to help. You do not have to be licensed, nor do you have to commit to a longer period.

Below is the information for those of you who might want to volunteer in Mississippi. Most of the need right now is at Disaster Recovery Centers in the coastal areas. At this point State of Mississippi has no funds to help with your expenses. You also need to be self-sustaining in terms of places to stay, etc. There is no minimum time commitment.

Individuals do not need to be licensed but should have some background in mental health...masters students in counseling or doctoral counseling psychology, etc. students are more than welcome. There is much to be done including outreach and giving basic information as well as counseling.

If anyone wants to volunteer, contact Kris Jones, LMSW (see message below). If you are licensed, they would also like you to contact the appropriate licensing board first (Kris or someone at Project Recovery can direct you).
