1 Guidelines for Clinical Mental Health Portfolio A requirement for all Clinical Mental Health Counseling students admitted as of May The Clinical Mental Health Counseling concentration uses a portfolio to engage students in a process of collecting and refining a compilation of materials that synthesize the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that help to comprise their professional identities. The portfolio for mental health students is by and large based on products from your course work. This means you will want to choose products that are representative of your best work. A rubric for evaluation is used for assessing the various components of the portfolio. The portfolios are introduced in the HCE 500 Orientation to the Counseling Profession course, and are reviewed in the HCE 640, and HCE 686 classes. A final presentation of the professional portfolio is one of the culminating activities in the Internship Seminar. A professional portfolio is a collection of experience-based materials and reflective information that demonstrate the various dimensions of the counselor s work, philosophy, abilities, and dispositions. The goal of the portfolio is to have counselors analyze their various learning experiences and to then synthesize their learning in a way that demonstrates how diverse activities and insights from the program have contributed to their competence and professional identity. As such, a portfolio is as much a process as it is a product. Portfolio Structure: Physically, a portfolio should be a well-organized and attractive presentation of professional materials. It is best that graded papers be included to reflect feedback from instructors to enhance students learning. The portfolio should be organized in a large threeringed binder with tabs, a table of contents, and individual sections corresponding to the CMHC major themes. Construction and sub-themes are left to the discretion of the individual, but should make a statement about the sense of self that one brings to the counseling profession. Suggested structure to begin the portfolio: 3-inch binder with cover window Cover page to be inserted into the window Program application narrative Background information about educational, work and personal experiences that led you to the counseling field A table of contents Dividers with tabs for organizing sections of the portfolio Sections of the Portfolio: The Clinical Mental Health counseling portfolios should be designed around four broad themes: 1) The Change Process, 2) Related Counselor Skills, 3) Personal Growth, and 3) Professional Identity. Please see the descriptions and specific requirements for each section below.
