Counseling Practicum

The purpose of this course is to provide a support forum for beginning dance/movement therapists and body psychotherapists to integrate the basic principles of working within the community and the mental health care system from a body-centered, movement-oriented perspective. This course integrates academic study and skills practice with community-based learning and offers student support around internship placement issues, as well as structured clinical training. This course offers 1.5 hours of group supervision during practicum placement each week. There is a $150 special fee for a mandatory ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training), which takes place over one weekend of the semester. Prerequisite: Completion of 100-hour fieldwork placement.
