Internship Opportunities The required Practicum and Internship Seminars allow you to integrate theory and practice in a hands on environment. Selecting the right internship site is important because you will acquire the specialized expertise that will advance your career. Our graduates consistently rate their combined practicum and internship experience as one of the most rewarding and beneficial parts of the program. Practicum First Period of Supervised Clinical Practice The first block of supervised clinical practice takes place during the spring semester. The Guidelines for Supervised Clinical Practice, a publication of the Joint Liaison Committee of the Council of State Directors of Vocational Rehabilitation and Rehabilitation Counselor Educators, was used in the development of the program for the supervised clinical practice. The emphasis is on the counseling relationship for the development of interviewing skills and case study development. Affiliations for supervised clinical practice have been established with state rehabilitation agencies as well as social, educational, and rehabilitation agencies and institutions. The expanding field of rehabilitation is reflected during clinical practice, through programs that emphasize independent living, corrections, educational problems, substance abuse, gerontology, public welfare, and psychiatric rehabilitation. The Practicum requires 100 hours of supervised fieldwork experience. Internship I and II Second Period of Supervised Clinical Practice The last block of supervised clinical practice is an Internship designed to facilitate the transition from trainee to professional rehabilitation counselor. The emphasis in this block is on counseling - including assessment, appraisal, coping with disability, and placement. At this point, you are called upon to function in an increasingly independent manner, integrating your training and experience. The Internship extends over both the fall and spring semesters. The Internship requires 600 hours of supervised fieldwork experience.
