The purpose of this study is to identify and describe the wellness and self-care experiences of current counselor education and supervision doctoral students in CACREP accredited doctoral programs. Data were collected using the FFWEL-A2 inventory, two additional Likert agreement scales, two drop-down menus, and two open-ended questions. A total of 118 participants completed the survey. Total wellness scores on the FFWEL-A2 were higher than the norming group. Self-care data were grouped by strengths and challenges. Themes within strengths included individual activities, social activities, awareness, and overcoming guilt. Themes within challenges were time, lack of motivation or energy, expectations, perceptions of discrimination, COVID-19, financial constraints, lack of social support, and personal mental health experiences. A Pearson Product-Moment correlation and multiple linear regression were used to analyze the relationship between dependent and independent variables. Implications for counselor educators and CES doctoral students will be discussed.
