8 8 INTRODUCTION TO PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES Professional practice, which includes practicum and internship, provides for the application of theory and the development and enhancement of skills for client assessment, planning, intervening, and evaluating. These experiences will provide opportunities for students to counsel clients who represent the ethnic and demographic diversity of the community. All placements will be located in sites which include counseling as one of the primary professional activities and shall be supervised by a master's level counselor. PROFESSIONAL PARAMETERS/ISSUES Informed Consent Before you initiate a counseling relationship, you must first inform your client of any limits to confidentiality, your status as a counselor- in- training, and any site specific information which your site supervisor has provided. You must also secure your client's permission to tape the counseling sessions. Your particular site may have a form which they prefer you to use. If not, the generic Faulkner University form will be sufficient. Some agencies do not allow you to copy their forms. If this is the case where you are, you will need to fill out separate paper work for practicum purposes. Emergency Procedures You also need to ask your site supervisor about the emergency procedures under which your site operates. What are the hours of operation? Who/Where should clients call if they have an emergency after hours? You are only allowed to see your clients under supervision. That means that you are not available to clients after hours or off site. You should not give your home phone number to clients, but should have an alternate emergency number to give them should they request it or should you determine they are at risk. Ethical Guidelines When you enter into a counseling relationship, you are entering into an agreement with your client to keep his/her welfare foremost during your time together. You are agreeing to provide the treatment/counseling most appropriate to address the client's concern, to treat the client with respect, to refer when appropriate, and not to exceed your level of competence. You should be familiar with ACA ETHICAL GUIDELINES and use them as a guide for behaving in a professional, ethical manner. They can be found at: Professional Liability Insurance During your practicum and internship experience Faulkner University will be covering you for professional liability insurance. You will notice an extra charge on your account that will reflect a portion of the cost of that insurance. Professional Behavior Although the primary purpose of practicum is to assist you in the continued development and application of counseling skills, you are also an agent of the site. You are expected to operate under norms of the site. This includes being punctual, dressing appropriately, and presenting oneself professionally. As you continue the development of your professional identity, it is important to be aware of current issues and trends. You can learn a lot about the profession through contact with counselors at your site, membership in ACA, and attendance at professional development workshops and seminars.
9 9 The Supervisory Relationship Clinical Supervision is a type of intervention. It involves a supervisor, a senior member of the profession, one or more supervisees, and also junior members of the profession. The supervisor works with the supervisee to enhance his/her professional competence and monitors the quality of counseling services extended to the client. The relationship is evaluative and extends over time (Bernard & Goodyear, 1992). The evaluation component of practicum is described in the syllabus. You will demonstrate mastery of the competencies listed on the syllabus through your recordings. Both process and conceptualization skills are emphasized. Your supervisor will assume a variety of roles including consultant, teacher, and counselor. This is in effort to assist you, enhance your competence, and provide high quality services to your clients. The expectation is held that you will be as prepared for supervision as you are for your sessions. You will need to listen to your tapes, identify your strengths, weaknesses, and be prepared to request specific assistance from your supervisor. The same ethical guidelines govern supervisory relationships that govern other relationships. While the nature of this relationship may, at times, be more like colleague- to- colleague than student- to- teacher, it is still a professional one in which the supervisor is required to provide evaluative feedback to the supervisee. The Recording Requirement Basically, there are three principal purposes for submitting actual work samples (recordings) of sessions when one is in supervision. First and foremost, the supervisor needs to monitor the services that are being provided to the clients/students. Are the strategies being used empirically supported, consistent with the "best practices" in the field, ethically sound, and delivered in a way that responds to all legal requirements? Second, the supervisor needs to be able to assist the supervisee in identification of his or her strengths as well as areas for improvement. Supervision research has demonstrated that the "self- report" method is not a reliable one for ascertaining a full, comprehensive view of a counseling session. The voice of the interested third party, the supervisor, is one that focuses on your development as a counselor, as well as on the client's needs. Additionally, the supervisor is responsible for facilitating your development overtime and with a variety of different types of clients/students. These purposes cannot be met without direct observations of work samples. Finally, the recordings are intended to be an instructive tool. They should lead you to reflection, help you determine the ways you need to improve, and find the types of learning experiences you need to best possible counselor for students with a wide variety of needs. So, there is an expectation that you will review your recordings to identify your specific areas of strength and weakness. Use these discoveries to develop professional, and, at times, personal development goals. As well, these reflections should form the basis for your use of supervision time. What exactly do you need to work on and how can your supervisor help you to develop strategies leading to improvement? Supervision, like counseling, is not a passive process. Faulkner University will provide you with digital recorders for this process. You will receive them through the mail along with instructions on how to record sessions and upload them to your University Supervisor's account. You must do this through your Faulkner account due to confidentially concerns with personal accounts.
11 11 Practicum Expectations Described This document is intended to clarify any confusion surrounding expectations and requirements for the practicum experience. In order for the student to successfully obtain and complete the 100 hour service requirement for practicum (40 Direct, 60 Indirect), it is expected that the student meet the following standards. 1). Obtain at least 40 clock hours of direct service with actual clients that contribute to the development of counseling skills. - The term DIRECT means that you are providing FACE TO FACE counseling services. This includes any therapeutic group that you are ACTIVELY participating in as the leader or co- leader. (Does not apply to observations of others performing the counseling service. You have to be the one demonstrating these skills to be able to count the time as DIRECT. All other services that do not fall under this explanation are considered indirect and should be counted as such. 2). Students must receive weekly interaction that averages one hour per week of individual and/or triadic supervision throughout the practicum by a program faculty member, or a doctoral student supervisor. This is MANDATORY. In case of absence due to illness or other crisis condition, practicum students will notify all supervisors. It is the student's responsibility to make up absences in individual supervision immediately. A student who has not been supervised during their weekly meeting and is unable to make it up within that week will be unable to see clients on site until they have made up their individual supervision time. - The supervision you may receive on site by your practicum site supervisor does not account for these hours. They should be included in Administrative Indirect Hours, as this is not a direct service you are providing clients and is often an administrative requirement within agencies and schools to meet staffing needs. 3). Students must attend and receive an average of 1.5 hours per week of group supervision that is provided on a regular schedule throughout the practicum by a program faculty member or a student supervisor. This will be met by your participation in the Blackboard online practicum course (COU 6390).
12 12 Expectations for University Appointed Supervisor and Student Practicum Supervision Supervision, a requirement for participation in practicum, is designed to assist students to develop competence in counseling and to monitor the level and appropriateness of services provided for clients. Individual supervision takes place weekly and is best scheduled so that you receive current supervision for a client just seen before you see that client again (e.g. site placement on Monday/Tuesday with supervision on Thursday or Friday, return to site on Monday). Supervision appointments are scheduled to fit into the needs of your site, yourselves, and your individual and group supervisors. Individual supervision is based on what you need to do in order to effectively serve clients. You must participate in individual supervision in order to continue to see clients. This will be completed via phone and e- mail communication one time per week. In the event of an emergency or illness, your supervisor will work with you to reschedule so that client sessions are not interrupted. However, if you are persistently absent or late for non- emergency reasons or fail to submit materials in a timely fashion so that you and your supervisor can be prepared for supervision, you may not be allowed to see clients and your continuation in the practicum class may be discontinued. We all have a responsibility to each and every client you see, and a large part of demonstrating commitment to these responsibilities is through your preparedness for and participation in both group and individual supervision. Both you and your supervisor will listen to audio files of your sessions each week in preparation for your supervision appointment. You are expected to be an active participant in supervision and to come with specific questions and issues that you wish to discuss with your supervisor. As well, your supervisor will identify specific learning needs that the supervisor believes will strengthen your performance as a counselor. At times, beginning students are uncomfortable with taping sessions and having others listen to their sessions. First and foremost, taped sessions are used by the supervisor to monitor the services that are being provided to the clients/students. Are the strategies being used empirically supported, consistent with the "best practices" in the field, ethically sound, and delivered in a way that responds to all legal requirements? Second, the supervisor needs to be able to assist you in the identification of strengths as well as areas of improvement. Supervision research has demonstrated that the "self- report" method is not a reliable one for ascertaining a full, comprehensive view of a counseling session. The voice of the interested third party, the supervisor, is one that focuses on your development as a counselor, as well as on the client's needs. Additionally, the supervisor is responsible for facilitating your development overtime and with a variety of different types of clients/students. These purposes cannot be met without direct observations of work samples. Finally, the tapes are intended to be an instructive tool leading to reflection and planning by you about the ways that you need to improve and the types of learning experiences you need to be the best possible counselor for students with a wide variety of needs. So, there is an expectation that you will review your tapes, identify specific areas of strength and weaknesses, and use these discoveries to develop professional and at times personal goals. Also, these reflections should form the basis for your use of supervision time. What exactly do you need to work on and how can your supervisor help you develop strategies leading to improvement? Supervision, like counseling, is not a passive process.
13 13 Suggested Guidelines for Case Conceptualization 1. In his/her own words, what is the client's presenting problem? 2. In what way(s) does the client's perception differ from that of the referral agent? 3. What is your perception of the presenting problem? 4. How is your view of the presenting problem different from the clients? 5. What is the major underlying problem? 6. What are the secondary problems? 7. When did the problems begin (onset)? 8. How has the client's day to day life been impacted by the problem? 9. Describe the impact of the family system, and others (peer culture, work, etc) on the client's concern. 10. How was life different before the onset of the problem? 11. How would the client like for things to be different? 12. What are the client's strengths? 13. What are the limitations/barriers that might hinder or prevent the changes that client would like to enact? Based on the information above, a treatment/counseling plan, including goals (long range) and objectives (short range) should be formulated. The evidence of change should be clearly identified. In addition, the counselor should be able to estimate the length of treatment/counseling. *** The following paperwork (notes, intakes, treatment plan (is for example purposes only. You are not required to use the following paperwork IF your site has sufficient documentation abilities. You will NOT submit any of your site s paperwork to Faulkner University or your individual supervisor.

22 Progress Notes Progress Notes provide a means for monitoring a client's progress throughout treatment/counseling. Progress notes are also used to examine a client's progress toward treatment/counseling goals, the development of new issues and goals, and the modification of the initial treatment/counseling plan. In supervision, these notes provide a means for the supervisor to track the progress of the client and the supervisee. Progress notes should be brief, concise, and should be written as soon as possible following the counseling session. The notes should include only relevant information, thus in writing your progress notes "avoid labeling, judging, and using terminology that may be stigmatizing to the client" (Hansen, Rossberg, & Cramer, 1994, p. 306). Remember that clients have the right to review their case records. Session Objectives and therapeutic interventions should relate to the overall treatment/counseling plan for the client. Progress notes should include specific client information and may be supported by behavioral observations, assessment measures, client statements, and other observations by the counselor. Progress notes also allow you to monitor changes that may result in a modification of the treatment /counseling plan for a client. The following progress note format focuses on session objectives, therapeutic interventions, session evaluation, and plans for next session. It is essential to the supervisory process that you include all relevant information. Please include in the evaluation section any specific questions or concerns you might have for your supervisor. Finally, these progress notes are not meant to substitute for progress notes at your site. *** The following paperwork (notes, intakes, treatment plan) is for example purposes only. You are not required to use the following paperwork IF your site has sufficient documentation abilities. You will NOT submit any of your site s paperwork to Faulkner University or you individual supervisor.
23 Sample Progress Note Format- Individual Client: 34 Date: Counselor- in- training: S. Jones Session Number: 2 Session Objective(s): In brief format; describe the specific session objective(s). These obj ectives should relate to the goals and objectives outlined in your treatment/counseling plan. EX: The objective in this session was to have the client identify the specific living skills they would like to work on in counseling. Therapeutic Intervention(s): This section should discuss the specific therapeutic techniques, skills or activities you used in the session to assist the client in working through the session objective(s). Ex: Initially I worked with the client on brainstorming, generating ideas for living skills. This occurred after getting the client to focus on his goal of living independently. Then I helped the client prioritize skills and select three for our sessions. Evaluation: This session should provide an overview of the session in rel ation to the objective(s) established for this session. This may include consideration of client progress, evaluation of your role as counselor, critical issues that arose, client- counselor dynamics, and issues that may have led to a revision of the original session objectives or treatment/counseling plan. Specific questions or concerns for the supervisor can be put in bold or underlined. Ex: Initially there was some difficulty in focusing the client. He seemed very distracted and had difficulty maintaining eye contact. Brainstorming was useful when I focused the goal of independent living. The client was resistant to prioritizing living skills "I want to do all of them". I worked on refocusing and together we identified three goals to begin within our sessions (an apartment, a job, a car). I need to develop some other techniques for refocusing the client. Plan(s) for Next Session: This should include consideration of overall objectives and what occurred in the previous session. Ex: The focus will be on independent living skills related to living in an apartment (e.g., finding an apartment, paying bills, etc.).
