Quincy University Associate Professor and Counseling Program Director, Dr. Ken Oliver, recently published a brief conceptual article in the spring 2014 issue of the InfoChange Newsletter. The article entitled, “Program-Level Assessment as Reflective Humanistic Practice,” suggests a philosophical shift in how counseling faculty view the assessment process. The author contends that, if done well, assessment at the program-level should mirror the humanistic process of attaining self-awareness, a condition many humanistic counselors believe is necessary for change. Infochange is the official newsletter of the Association of Humanistic Counseling and is published quarterly.
