Stacey Litam ’10, ’14G, a student in John Carroll University’s clinical mental health counseling master’s program, has received the 2014 Emerging Leader Award from the Association for Humanistic Counseling. The highly competitive national award is presented annually to one master’s-level student, one doctoral-level student, and one new professional.
The Association for Humanistic Counseling is one of the four founding divisions of the American Counseling Association (ACA). Litam accepted the award at the national ACA conference in Honolulu in March. She also presented a poster at the conference with Paula Britton, Ph.D., a counselor education professor at JCU.
“The quality of education I have received at John Carroll has prepared me well and put me in an excellent place to receive this award,” says Litam, who holds a B.S. in psychology from JCU. “I look forward to developing further as a student, professional and advocate, and I will continue to speak very highly of my time at John Carroll.”
Litam has been accepted to the Ph.D. program in counselor education and supervision at Kent State University. She plans to begin studying there in fall 2014 after completing her master’s degree at JCU.
John Carroll University’s counselor education program offers master’s degrees in clinical mental health counseling and school counseling. Both programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling & Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
