Description

A core text/reference for undergraduage and graduate Internship, Field Work, and Field Placement Practicum courses in education, counseling, social work, psychology, and related helping disciplines.

A practical guide to the “real world” knowledge and skills that students need when they begin working  in the field of mental health. The book guides interns through every phase of the internship process from finding placements to concluding relationships with clients and supervisors.  Along the way students learn about ethics, clinical writing and record keeping, working with peers and supervisors, understanding diversity, self care and safety, and how to be successful in meeting the challenges and opportunities of the internship or field placement setting.  Following an evidence and competency based approach, the latest research findings are reviewed from the fields of psychology, social work and counseling.   Throughout the book are hands on practical exercises plus examples and illustrations to keep the material relevant and “user friendly” to students.
