3 Part I: Introduction This manual is designed to provide information about the practicum experiences related to the Master s programs in Counseling at Grand Canyon University. This document provides all the guidelines and forms necessary to meet programmatic requirements. This document also serves as a Memorandum of Understanding between the student, practicum experience site, and the counseling department at Grand Canyon University. A practicum experience is an opportunity to put into practice concepts that GCU students have learned in the classroom and to demonstrate their ability to perform in a professional setting. This learning experience will allow our students to become acquainted with the workplace environments and provide networking opportunities that could lead to employment following completion of the program. During the practicum experience, classroom assignments focused on introspection and identifying personal change, professional growth, and self-assessment will document their professional development. Planning ahead for the Practicum Experience In order to have all the clearances and releases in place to start the pre-practicum course, the student must initiate a formal application for practicum experience with the COHS Office of Field Experience. This must be done at least 16 weeks prior to the date the student plans to begin the pre-practicum course. The student s first step is to contact their academic advisor at GCU to determine the start date of their pre-practicum course. The academic advisor assists students with course scheduling and setting the pre-practicum and practicum start dates. * The student must complete the Pre-Practicum/Practicum Application and fax to the COHS Office of Field Experience. The student must locate and confirm a practicum site. Assistance with acquiring a practicum site is further discussed in Part III Time Commitments to the Practicum Experience Students should plan ahead to meet the commitments of the practicum experience. Most host organizations are often limited to day-time and week-days for providing practicum experiences and if the student does not complete 100 hours of clinical work in the 8 week pre-practicum course, they will not be able to move on to the practicum courses. If the student does not complete a minimum of 150 hours of practicum experience during each of the 8 week practicum courses, they will have to enroll in additional credits of practicum coursework to complete the degree. The practicum student must complete all of their professional time commitment to the host agency even if the student has successfully completed their logged clock hour commitment. Students must discuss and agree upon their practicum experience start and end dates with their site supervisor. It is important for students to confer with the site supervisor on how they will be expected to provide closure to their clients. Remember, to abandon a client is unethical. Using a current place of employment to complete the practicum experience If a student is planning to use their current place of employment to complete a practicum experience they must inform the COHS Office of Field Experience that this is their intention and obtain approval in advance of the start date. Some State Boards may prohibit this practice so students should contact the board in their state to find out if they can complete the practicum experience at their place of employment. If a student already has paid employment with a host agency their hours can only be logged after they have been approved and begun a practicum course. Practicum Fees Generally, the cost of a practicum experience is the cost of the regular university tuition and fees. All university fees will be collected by the university business office. No fees will be paid to the host site supervisor or hosting agency. The practicum student is responsible for their own transportation and fees pertaining to student professional liability insurance, professional memberships, and any background fingerprint checks which may be required by the host site. Additional fees may be incurred by the student if a site requires vaccinations, chest x-rays or other medical clearances. 3

4 Professional Associations and Liability Insurance All practicum students must meet the following prerequisite requirements BEFORE they may register or enter a practicum experience under the auspices of Grand Canyon University. This coverage is not facilitated by GCU directly. The students have to take the initiative, make contacts and take care of these responsibilities themselves. They are: 1. Membership in a Professional Counselor Association. GCU considers affiliation with a professional counselor association as part of its professional expectation for its counseling students. Each counselor-to-be student is to select that professional counselor association that best reflects the particular area focus of counseling into which they are planning to professionally serve. These include the following possible associations: a. American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (www.aamft.org ) b. American Psychological Association (APA) (www.apa.org) 2. Student professional liability insurance. Each prospective practicum student is required by Grand Canyon University to have their own individual liability insurance coverage prior to the beginning of their practicum experience. Every student must have their own individual insurance even if their host site states that they have insurance that will cover the student. Some professional associations can provide reasonable student rates for insurance. For example, ACA will insure addictions and professional counseling students as part of membership. The minimum coverage specified by GCU for its counseling practicum students is $1,000,000 per claim and $3,000, 000 aggregate. The practicum student must provide the College of Health Sciences Office of Field Experience with copies of their liability insurance and pages specifying coverage limits, dates of coverage and limits of liability. No student will be able to begin a practicum without this coverage. State Licensing and Certification Requirements Students should be aware that State legislatures make periodic changes to licensing rules, including the number of pre-practicum and practicum hours required. It is recommended that they routinely check their state licensing board website to keep up with any changes that may affect their ability to obtain licensure/certification. Failure to do so could affect the student s application for licensure or certification. It may be in the students best interest to obtain any additional hours required by their state prior to graduation. The California Board of Behavioral Sciences requires each intern to register with the Board prior to beginning prepracticum. Below are links that will help you find California State s licensing and certification requirements: California Board of Behavioral Sciences California Board requires that the intern apply for registration immediately following completion of their degree Please review this site and application form carefully as they contain important information and forms regarding MFT licensing requirements.

Preparing and completing the practicum experience portfolio Students responsibilities related to the hosting agency and field supervisor: As students engage in practicum experiences throughout the country, they serve as ambassadors of Grand Canyon University. Through their interactions and performance, they will be demonstrating to many professionals and members of the general population what Grand Canyon University is all about and the special qualities that our students bring to them. Consequently, practicum students have the responsibility of presenting themselves professionally to the population being served. Our goal is for GCU students to be exemplary role models of the counseling profession. In addition to the requirements related to the practicum experience, GCU also holds the practicum student to some personal and professional standards during the course of the practicum experience. The responsibilities related to the practicum experience include the following Conducting himself/herself in a professional manner at all times. Practicum students must operate according to site guidelines, procedures, and supervision as well as the state and national boards of the profession. If a supervisor gives a directive that appears to be in conflict with the students values or ethics, or creates a 7

8 personal conflict, which cannot be resolved in ordinary communication with the supervisor, the student must immediately contact the COHS Office of Field Experience to set up a telephone conference with the COHS Faculty Intern Supervisor. Carrying out all responsibilities as specified in the practicum experience duties. Arriving on time and work the scheduled times. Dressing appropriately for the agency and/or activity. Discussing with your supervisor the goals and/or skills you would like to attain Being prepared, both for sessions with clients as well as for supervision. Supervisees should attend supervision with an agenda of cases and / or clinical issues that need to be addressed. Be receptive to guidance and instruction from your supervisor, that is, be attentive to feedback and suggestions from your supervisor and follow through on such instructions promptly. It may be necessary to take notes during supervision in order to execute all instructions identified by your supervisor. Inform your supervisor of any difficulties you are having in the areas of delivering services to clients, completing paperwork, or coordinating professionally with other agencies or staff. Always remember: Seek supervision whenever you are uncertain about a situation. If it is an emergency situation and the client is in your office make every attempt to contact your supervisor or other on site licensed clinician before taking action with that client. If your supervisor cannot be reached, contact one of the other site supervisors. You may also consult informally with experienced counselors at your site, but your site supervisor MUST be kept abreast of all emergencies. Counselors must advise their clinical supervisor of all important changes in a case. The results of new assessments must be reviewed with your supervisor at the earliest opportunity to confirm treatment planning. Any changes to the treatment plan must be reviewed with your supervisor BEFORE they are presented to the client. Consult with your supervisor about case closures in advance of closing the case, including the implementation of strategies that may result in a client deciding to terminate treatment. Keep your supervisor informed about clients who are suicidal, homicidal, or threatening harm to others. Notify your supervisor about clients who are involved in child custody disputes, disability determination assessment, or any other matters that affects the client's legal status. Under Federal law you have a duty to warn and a duty to protect. Maintaining client confidentiality is ethically and legally mandated by state and federal regulations. This includes information that any individual is in fact a client at the site as well as any identifying information. Access to client information should only be attempted with the explicit permission of supervisors, and only as needed for facilitation of treatment. Supervisees will not engage in dual relationships with clients, that is, counselors will not Under any circumstances participate in a dual relationship with a client, nor will they provide services to clients they know from other context, such as friends or acquaintances. In the event that someone you know is being seen at the agency, you are expected to remove yourself from situations where the client's treatment and progress are being reviewed. It is your responsibility to alert your supervisor to such situations. A supervisee is responsible for ensuring that all clients are informed of the supervised nature of the work of the supervisee, and of the ultimate professional responsibility of the supervisor. Practicum students must adhere to the code of ethics of Marriage and Family Therapists: The clinical supervisor is legally and ethically responsible, with the student, for the service the student provides and the manner in which the student conducts himself/herself. It is therefore the supervisee's responsibility to keep the supervisor well informed of his or her activities. Openness with and trust in the clinical supervisor will enhance experience of supervision and professional growth.
