School of Education professors Janine M. Bernard and Harold L. Hackney have been extended fellow status by the American Counseling Association (ACA). The honor, which this year was given to only 11 ACA members, recognizes significant and unique contributions in professional practice, scientific achievement and governance, or teaching and training. The fellowships were presented last month at the ACA annual convention in Montreal. The ACA is the world’s largest private, not-for-profit organization for professional counselors.
Bernard, professor and chair of the School of Education’s counseling and human services department, was recognized for her substantial contributions to the field of counselor education and supervision over the past 30 years. She is the author of the “discrimination model” of counseling supervision and has received attention both nationally and internationally. She also is coauthor of “Fundamentals of Clinical Supervision” (Allyn & Bacon, 1997), one of the world’s leading textbooks on the subject of counseling supervision. She has been chair of the board of directors of the National Board for Certified Counselors (CACREP) and has performed as CACREP accreditation site visitor and team leader trainer.
Hackney, professor of counseling and human services in the School of Education, is the author or coauthor of six books and more than 70 other publications. His most influential work is “Counseling Strategies and Interventions” (Allyn & Bacon, 6th edition, 2004) and “The Professional Counselor” (Allyn & Bacon, 5th edition, 2004), both coauthored with Sherry Nye Cormier. His work has contributed to shaping the training of professional counselors for more than 30 years. Hackney has offered workshops, courses and presentations on his work in the United States and abroad, including in Australia, Canada, England, Germany and Taiwan.
Based in Alexandria, Va., the ACA is dedicated to promoting public confidence and trust in the counseling profession, and provides leadership training, continuing education and advocacy services for its more then 45,000 members.
