On this bonus edition of CampWire - we sit down with school psychologist, adolescent and family counselor, SADD Chairman and CEO, camp director, researcher, motivational speaker, and college professor - Stephen Gray Wallace! During this archived conversation we cover how Stephen got involved in the world of camp, his outlook on "relational vs. transactional counseling" and the critical need for mentoring and youth mental health professionals in camps and other organizations.
Stephen currently serves as president and director of the Center for Adolescent Research and Education (CARE), a national collaborative of institutions and organizations committed to increasing favorable youth outcomes and decreasing negative risk behaviors.
Check out Stephen's new book, IMPACT – An Introduction to Counseling, Mentoring, and Youth Development.
