This course is designed to provide opportunities for students to work with clients from diverse personal, social, and cultural backgrounds, in schools, higher education settings, and community agencies. As part of their learning goals, students are expected to receive guidance and supervision in clinical competency areas such as: case conceptualization, intervention skills and strategies, professionalism, ethical conduct, and sensitivity to diversity.
The counselling practicum provides students with a wide range of opportunities to acquire clinical competency and experience through direct service and also to become familiar with a variety of professional activities (e.g., record keeping, clinical supervision, information and referral, team work, in-service and staff meetings) and ethical, legal, and professional issues in clinical practice.
Students learning will be facilitated by direct clinical experience and supervision in the field and also through a variety of learning experiences, guidance, support and supervision facilitated by the instructor and through peer interaction and feedback in the practicum class on campus.
