A Guide to Practicum and Internship for School Counselors-in-Training, 2nd ed, 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 both an awareness of the school culture and the understanding needed to develop an individualized philosophy of school counseling. Specific topics covered include popular counseling theories used by school counselors, strategies for working with special populations of students, understanding the school counselor's role in utilizing the 2012 National Model of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) including the inherent elements and themes, putting the ASCA ethical standards into practice, and administration of day-to-day tasks. Each chapter contains activities, case studies, worksheets, and images to facilitate understanding, and all material presented is consistent with both the accreditation standards of the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and the school counselor standards identified by the ASCA.
"The new edition of A Guide to Practicum and Internship for School Counselors-in-Training is the definitive text and guide for pre-service practicum and internship students. The new features, especially the expanded sections on supervision and the ASCA National Model, bring theory alive in practical school-based applications, from working with special populations to the politics and culture climate of today's schools. Since this text was first published, it has helped shaped the direction of our internship program." Carol Dahir, EdD, is professor and chair of the school counseling program in the school of education at New York Institute of Technology.
