More about Dr. Maclin


Dr. Vickey Maclin, graduated from Wheaton College in 2007 and has been teaching and providing clinical services since that time.  One of the areas that she has a strong passion is related to multicultural matters.  She taught Multicultural Counseling for several years and enjoyed seeing students develop a greater sense of their own cultural awareness and competences to work with clients from different multicultural backgrounds.  Dr. Maclin has had a broad experience in developing and growing in her own multicultural awareness.  Prior to teaching, she spent 17 years on staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) and worked with people from all walks of life, and in several different countries.  She has learned, over the years, in many different settings, that while there are some generalities that can be true of peoples from the same racial, ethnic, spiritual, age, gender, etc backgrounds; the thing of greatest importance is to get to know the individual.  In addition to teaching the topic in the classroom, she has had the privilege of addressing audiences at conferences and in international settings on several different multicultural topics.  It is her hope that those who attend this workshop will be challenged and grow in a ways that will greatly benefit them.  She also desires to see the attendees  gain some new knowledge that will benefit those they serve in a clinical setting.  Dr. Maclin is the Associate Director of Graduate Programs in Counseling at Gordon Conwell.  She also works as a Provisional Psychologist providing clinical services to a broad range of people, specializing in children and adolescents.
