Dr. Rosalind Goodrich has worked for years with individuals, children, and families in educational and counseling situations, but she has also approached that on-the-ground work with a teaching perspective, teaching at USF and Florida Southern before coming full-time to Southeastern.
Dr. Goodrich desires not only that her work bless individuals but also that each of those individuals can continue to bless others, particularly those in their immediate circles of family and friends. She recognizes that most of us spend countless formative hours within educational settings, and our experiences shape who we are and who we become. Therefore, her goal is to create a healthy ripple effect by impacting students in school settings, encouraging school and home collaboration, and teaching her university students to build those same bridges in their future work. Dr. Goodrich enjoys the excitement of this academic discovery, and she says that she is continually learning from her students.
Dr. Goodrich has also volunteered as a speaker on marriage and family, as well as child education topics in church and community settings. She believes that healthy marriage and parenting skills are the foundations of the family and, to a great extent, of the church as well.
At Southeastern, Dr. Goodrich teaches in both the master’s in Professional Counseling and master’s in School Counseling programs. These classes include Foundations of Counseling; Individual Evaluation and Assessment; Career and Lifestyle Development; Philosophy, Administration, and Organization of Guidance Services; and Specialized Counseling for Elementary and Secondary Schools, among others. Her research interests include the relationship of personal theology to interpersonal relationships, school and family influences on personal development and interpersonal communication (across various settings).
