Book Description

The ideal resource for school counseling field experiences, the updated and expanded third edition of A Guide to Practicum and Internship for School Counselors-in-Training covers all aspects of the practicum and internship experience from the initial contact with supervisors to detailed descriptions of students’ different roles.

Readers will gain an awareness of school culture and the understanding needed to develop an individualized philosophy of school counseling. Each chapter contains activities, case studies, worksheets, and images to facilitate understanding, and all material is consistent with both the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) 2016 Common Core and School Counselor Entry-Level Specialty Areas and the school counselor standards identified by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Specific focus is given to strategies for implementing the ASCA National Model (4th edition) as a part of clinical experiences.

This text can be used by faculty, students, and supervisors alike to support and enhance the school counseling knowledge base used to meet the needs of all students.

Reviews

"The third edition of A Guide to Practicum and Internship for School Counselors-in-Training continues and expands its influence on the professional development of school counselors. As a distinct mental health and education focused profession, school counseling requires unique expertise and training experiences. This guide aids not only those of us in counselor education programs, but also the professionals in the field who are mentoring our next generation of school counselors. With a unique focus on what many students understand to be the most significant aspect of their education—the field experience—Drs. Studer and Oberman provide a connection between the university classroom, the school environment, and the school counselor and bring the profession to life for the ultimate benefit of the students and families they serve."

Janna L. Scarborough, PhD, Professor of Counseling, East Tennessee State University

"A Guide to Practicum and Internship for School Counselors-in-Training is a game changer for school counselors-in-training, site supervisors, and counselor educators. This guide delivers practical activities and insights to help school counselors-in-training successfully navigate the clinical experience, apply the ASCA National Model, and transition into the profession with a clear professional identity. It has given me a new perspective on practicum and internship supervision. I won’t teach another internship course without it."

Kimberlee Ratliff, PhD, Professor of School Counseling, American Public University System
