While teaching writing-intensive courses within master's-level counseling programs, this presenter gained understanding regarding the diverse writing needs of students, as well as how previous educational experiences shaped students' perceptions of self-efficacy in their writing. This led to the presenter conducting qualitative research in this area as a means to define how students' positive and negative learning experiences have affected their performance as emerging counselors. This research also helped to determine how students writing needs are directly relate social justice implications of students' writing skills, and how students can advocate for clients through the written word. In this presentation, we will explore our responsibilities as counselor educators and how to be culturally responsive to our students' needs.
