About This Book

This ready-to-use resource provides the practical information and hands-on skills interns and practicum students need to successfully complete their clinical experiences and join the counseling profession with confidence.

Designed to accompany students as they advance through practicum and internship, Practicum and Internship Experiences in Counseling helps bridge the gap from theory to practice. It covers the day-to-day elements of practice in agencies and schools that are often missing from the theory-based courses. Chapters are packed with case examples, activities, voices from the field, and self-assessments, including tools for assessing and addressing ethnocentrism, intersectionality, and bias in counseling practice.

This resource orients clinical students to the field, while providing them with the day-to-day skills they need to thrive.

Special focus on:

  • Expectations and how to get the most out of the supervision process
  • Assessment and intervention with clients in danger and crisis
  • Wellness and developing healthy work and personal habits to carry through one's entire career.

Readers see clearly how to:

  • Apply the laws and ethics in everyday clinical practice
  • Work with special issues (neuropsych and psychopharmacology) and populations
  • Market and position oneself in the job market, with an eye toward growing/marketing a counseling practice after graduation

Included in each chapter:

  • Several self-assessment activities encouraging self-reflection and self-assessment on the concepts of the chapter
  • Voices from the field features providing firsthand, in-the-trenches perspectives from counselors who have "been there and done that."
  • Realistic case examples challenging readers to apply knowledge and skills to realistic cases they are likely to encounter in the field

Included are separate chapters on:

  • Relationship building
  • Goal setting
  • Record keeping
  • The integration of theory into practice
