Completely revised and updated, the fourth edition of Practicum and Internshipcarries on the tradition of the previous editions as a popular and highly useful textbook and resource guide. It continues to be a comprehensive resource for students and their supervisors throughout the counseling and psychotherapy process, providing thorough coverage of both the theoretical and practical aspects of the practicum and internship process. This text guides students through the important pre-professional training experiences, from the selection of an appropriate practicum site to the final evaluation of the internship. Organizing the content into four sections for clarity and ease of use, the authors discuss all the relevant information regarding the practicum experience, preparation for the internship, the internship experience and evaluation, and important ethical and legal considerations. New in this edition are a listing and description of the various counseling theories and techniques; a section on crisis intervention and response; detailed guidelines for school mental health consultation; and forms for evaluating performance, cognitive, and consulting skills Forms are provided at the end of the book for the student's use in site selection, assessment, client treatment, and performance feedback and evaluation. These forms are also included in electronic format on an accompanying CD to allow students to modify and reuse them.
