This presentation will share the findings of a basic qualitative study that was implemented to better understand the personal growth and development of master's level counseling graduates. Seven professional counselors who had graduated from a CACREP-accredited master's level counseling program were interviewed. Sixteen themes emerged from the interviews that addressed the following areas: 1) students experiences of personal growth and development, 2) what parts of a training program most impacts personal growth and develop, and 3) how personal growth and development experiences impact professionals' present work with clients. Specifics of the findings will be presented followed by a discussion focusing on how the findings can be used to inform the way counselor education programs address students' personal growth and development.
