Students are expected to study and read independently so that they continuously enlarge and expand their knowledge base of counseling, theory, research and practice. Furthermore, program students are expected to apply this knowledge to the development, implementation and evaluation of counseling interventions and programs. Students are similarly expected to respond effectively to the needs of an ethnically, culturally, and religiously diverse client population. Students will respect the dignity and value of clients whatever their age, race, gender, culture, or sexual orientation. Students will understand the common developmental themes occurring across the life span. They will utilize a variety of interventions to promote the personal, familial, and social growth of all clients. Student competencies are based upon Indiana Professional Standards Board guidelines and students are required to demonstrate the knowledge, performance and dispositions at a minimum level of proficiency. Student competencies are also measured by the CACREP standards for counselors. Finally, students are expected to provide leadership in addressing issues of social justices, inclusion, and oppression. They will function as advocates for clients and as change agents for community institutions. PROGRAM STRUCTURE The entire CHS curriculum is offered during evenings, weekends, and online, enabling students to maintain their careers and meet family responsibilities while pursuing their graduate degree and state licensure. Members of the CHS faculty are actively involved in advising, mentoring, supervising, coaching, and evaluating students. Faculty members encourage students to develop areas of specialization, to participate in professional organizations, to conduct original projects and/or research, and to contribute to the continued evolution of the CHS Program. CHS Faculty annually evaluates the academic and professional progress of each student. Students will be notified after the annual progress reports of any academic concerns and/or other concerns of performance or disposition proficiencies that may require remediation. At that 6

7 time, a collaborative plan between the student and a CHS Faculty member will be developed and monitored to assist in student improvement.

14 PRACTICUM AND INTERNSHIP Students in the Addictions Track of the CHS program take part in 4 field experiences. In order to enroll in practicum, students must obtain the Practicum Application from Educational Student Services and submit it by the posted deadline. The following prerequisites must be met in order to enroll in practicum: G500, G510, G506, G522, and G523. Final approval for enrollment in practicum, though, is made by CHS faculty and is based on information on this application as well as results of annual student reviews and faculty evaluations of dispositional issues. Students who receive less than satisfactory evaluations in either of these assessments may be held out of practicum by the CHS faculty pending the results of an action plan created with the student. Beginning the Summer Session of the 3 rd year of study, students enroll in G514: Practicum in Alcohol and Drug Counseling for their first field experience. This field course is for Addictions Track students only and the entire focus will be on gaining early experience as an addictions counselor. Students complete G514 again the following summer to round out their field studies. G514 consists of weekly class meetings on campus, clinical work at a local agency, program development, and professional development. Students complete 220 clock hours of field work during each semester of G514. During the Fall and Spring Semesters of the 3 rd year of study, students enroll in G550: Internship in Counseling. Students will be enrolled in this course with peers from other areas of mental health counseling. G550 consists of weekly class meetings on campus, clinical work at a local agency, program development, and professional development. Students complete 300 clock hours of clinical work during each semester of G550. Further information on the hourly clinical work requirements during G550 can be found in the Community and Addictions Counseling Practicum and Internship Handbook. Students should note early in their program that they are responsible for identifying and securing their own field placements. This involves making contacts with local agencies, identifying areas of personal interest, and interviewing for practicum and internship positions. For this reason it is imperative that you begin the process of securing a practicum or internship site well in advance, as much as 3 to 6 months prior of the start of your field work semesters is not unreasonable. More information on practicum and internship placement requirements is available in the Community and Addictions Counseling Practicum and Internship Handbook. When it comes to approval for a field work site, there are three non-negotiable requirements. First, there must a licensed addictions or mental health professional on site that can provide you with weekly supervision. Second, you must be allowed to audio or video tape counseling sessions at the agency. Finally, the site must be able to guarantee you enough hours to complete your course requirements. For this reason, we highly recommend against using a private practice setting for a field work placement. CHS SPECIAL PROFESSIONAL SERVICE PROJECTS All students are required to complete a professional service project by the third year of the program. Students who have worked on planning committees for these projects recommend that you begin as early as the first year of the program. Contact any faculty member to sign up for a project. 14

CHS Marketing/Recruitment Activities Purpose/goals: Inform the relevant individuals in the community about the CHS program and its offerings. Recruit students and other forms of support for the CHS program Usually 1-3 students will serve on this project. With a CHS faculty member, the students will develop a plan for marketing and recruitment for the program. The students will then help to implement the marketing/recruitment program. ANNUAL STUDENT EVALUATION PROCESS All students in the CHS program receive and annual evaluation by program faculty. The criteria for this evaluation are based on CACREP standards for counseling training and involve both academic and student dispositional issues. Students will receive written information on the results of their annual evaluation. A copy of the evaluation form will also be filed with the Educational Students Services office. When issues are identified during an annual evaluation, students and faculty work together to create a remediation plan to address the identified issues. Failure to comply with this plan can result in dismissal from the CHS program. STUDENT DISPOSITION AND COMPORTMENT ASSESSMENTS In addition to the annual student evaluation, students are monitored by faculty and staff throughout the program for professional disposition and comportment issues. When dispositional issues are identified, identified students and faculty will work together to create a remediation plan. Failure to comply with this plan can also result in dismissal from the CHS program. SCHOOL OF EDUCATION LETTER OF CONCERN POLICY Remediation plans for dispositional issues may be address in a formal Letter of Concern. A formal letter of concern will result in the creation of a letter of concern action plan, which must be followed and completed by the student in order to remain in the CHS program. Further information on the School of Education Letter of Concern policy is available from Education Student Services. SCHOOL OF EDUCATION ISSUES RESOLUTION POLICY In the event that a student does not agree with a faculty or program decision about their status in CHS, students may initiate a formal issues resolution process.
