Gladding makes training video at ACA conference

Sam GladdingAlexander Street Press and the American Counseling Association (ACA) just released a video of  Sam Gladding, chair and professor of counseling, conducting a 90-minute group counseling session before a live audience at last year’s ACA conference in Cincinnati. The video is titled “Promoting Growth within a Group: Performing in the Here and Now.” This is the sixth training video Gladding has made for ASP, and it will be available as part of the ASP streaming service in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.

Gladding was assisted by four members of the Wake Forest counseling department: Jose Villalba, Nathaniel Ivers, Brian Calhoun, and Pamela Karr.
