We are pleased to announce a continuation of last fall’s training in the Four Corners Area. This is open to anyone that has completed Level 1a, b, c, d. This training can count towards level 3 of the training. See attached information sheet regarding AI/AN training.

Four Corners Counseling Connection, Part 2 Cultural Awareness & Competency Practicum November 11–13, 2016 • Monument Valley


The West Comprehensive Center at WestEd is sponsoring a regional professional development and networking opportunity for school counselors and other educators who serve and support American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students. This intensive, three-day experience will increase participants’ knowledge and understanding of Native American history and culture. Additionally, participants will explore culturally-inclusive practices, investigate learning process and styles, discuss the evolving roles and responsibilities of school counselors, and learn about postsecondary preparation and access.

Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 100 attendees to ensure a high-quality and meaningful experience. In addition to counselors, other suggested participants include teachers, principals, central office administrators, outreach program coordinators, counselor educators and graduate school students, members of national and state school counseling organizations, and representatives from community-based organizations.


The American Indian/Alaska Native Cultural Competency Training and Professional Development Program, developed by Student Advocacy Services, Utah State Board of Education, has three levels. While level one information is reviewed briefly, this practicum focuses on the following topics: (1) college and career readiness, (2) counselor roles and responsibilities, (3) culturally-inclusive practices, and (4) learning process and styles. Participants may request a certificate of participation from WestEd, and should contact their state education agencies regarding continuing education credit.


The Workshop commences at 3:00 p.m. Friday, November 11, and adjourns at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, November 13. There is no registration fee for the conference. We do ask that you register ONLY if you are able to participate fully all three days.
