Counseling Practicum

Counseling Practicum is designed to provide a supportive and instructional forum for students' initial experiences in clinical placement through the introduction of counseling skills, consultation, and group and triadic supervision. On-site supervision is supplemented in this class with a contemplative model of case presentation, Body, Speech, and Mind. Topics include theoretical orientation, case conceptualization and planning, clinical interventions, as well as dynamics of the student-supervisory relationship, organizational issues at the site, and self-care. The course also provides a systemic overview of mental health service delivery, policy, and access to community resources.
