Enhancing Scholarship Through Engagement: A Model for Interpersonal Scholarly Productivity within Counselor Education
Academia presents several unique challenges as it relates to the productivity expectations of counselor education faculty members. Although several writing and productivity models exist, none clearly support the challenges specific to counselor educators. The Interpersonal Scholarly Productivity model provides a framework for structuring a writing group focused around the attainment of scholarly goals. The model integrates considerations such as context, accountability, timing and consistency, and goal-orientation with interpersonal engagement and support to create an accessible structure for productivity. Utilizing interpersonal engagement, a core value of the counseling profession, can potentially increase scholarly productivity for counselor educators. Implications of the application of the model for counselor educators and counselors is discussed.
