VSCA Conference 2015
I am so grateful that I was able to attend the VSCA 2015 conference. During the conference I was able to choose from multiple breakout sessions on subjects that were relevant to the field of school counseling. The most eye opening session that I had the privilege to attend was a session on eating disorders. Since eating disorders are so prevalent among teens I wanted to learn more about it, and I am glad I did. I was able to gain more perspective and insight due to the presenter’s personal account of her daughter’s struggle with the disorder. I was also fortunate enough to hear John Hodge’s keynote speech called BE THE ONE! He encourages everyone to get invested in their students because sometimes one person can make a difference. The VSCA conference taught me a lot about the field that I was pursuing a degree in, but most of all it left me uplifted, empowered, and confident that this was field for me.
