Abstract

Professional counseling organizations tout the importance of wellness for counselors and counselors-in-training. The authors used a wellness-focused supervision model with mental health practicum students to assess the model's degree of treatment effect at improving students' wellness over the course of the semester. Participants' demographics included three women, one man, three European Americans, and one Latino/a. Single-case design results revealed that ongoing wellness-focused interventions are helpful in improving participants' level of wellness; implications for practice are provided.
