The Daily Brief

Department of Counseling and Student Affairs July 2016 

On July 16, 2016, M.A. Clinical Counseling Alumni and faculty member of the Department of Counseling and Student Affairs presented their IRB approved research, "Moments of Movement in Client Centered Counseling" at the 31st Annual Association for the Development of the Person-Centered Approach conference in Las Vegas, NV. This research examines patterns of verbal and non-verbal interaction observed between expert counselors and clients during video recorded demonstration counseling sessions. Results showed, among other things, how expert counselors match client communication qualities and express implicit understanding of what the client experiences but does not say. L to R- Angela Stone and Kelly Kulp '16, Dr. Jo Cohen, and Jessica Janze '15.

High pressure settles in to the region and provides for fair skies. While we will get ample sunshine, northerly flow will keep temperatures from rising too much. The aforementioned high will be east of our location by tomorrow and that's when the temperatures will soar. Enjoy this day! Next 5 days look hot and humid. High temperature in the mid-80s. Winds northeast at 5 mph.




(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

July 11, 1905:  Nearly 500 delegates of the Pennsylvania Educational Association travel to Kutztown on special rail cars for the purpose of inspecting the Keystone State Normal School.  KSNS is considered one of the best institutions in the nation and is often used as a model school.  



It is with deep regret that we inform the campus community of the passing of Jerri Palmer, mother to Dr. Joleen Greenwood, chair of Anthropology/Sociology Department. Messages of condolences can be sent to Dr. Greenwood Old Main 465.
