How can DCTs and training faculty and supervisors meet the current challenges facing students in the ever-changing millennial-tech world that values efficiency, brevity, electronic, and often indirect and depersonalized communications? These presentations focus on ways to adapt to these changes while addressing the challenges through stories and vignettes of mentoring, connecting students to personal and professional growth and development, Native American wisdom traditions, and the person of the therapist in their cultural and life context. We will seek to embrace tech changes while also emphasizing how to assist students to attend to being grounded, committed, relationally connected and mindful in clinical training and their career. As we adapt to a society and field that is already uber-technology driven, with more to come, these values become even more critical and meaningful; they can even be disruptive to the new status quo... ironically.
1. Participants will be able to discuss best practices, obstacles, and challenges in training students in a world reacting to new technologies.
2. Participants will be able to describe how to embrace disruptive technological changes in practicum and internship in creative ways that enhance personal and professional growth.
3. Participants will be able to identify wisdom traditions (and research informed ways) to motivate students and gain commitments to their own intrinsic values and aspirations.
