What People Are Saying about Practicum and Internship, 5th Edition:
"Practicum and Internship is an exceptionally comprehensive and practical resource that I have used with counseling students during supervision of their practicum and internship experiences. The fifth edition combines encyclopedic coverage of the issues facing students as they move through their pre-professional field experiences with numerous forms that provide practical examples of the tools they need in clinical practice and supervision. I am also looking forward to using this versatile new edition in pre-practicum course work, where the self-assessments and reflection exercises will be effective in helping students develop their professional identity."

Practicum and Internship provides both instructors and students with concrete, structured ways of organizing and supporting the learning process and working with clients.

"Practicum and Internship, 5th edition, is a solid and useful text that reaches out to the student reader and provides practical knowledge and skills that are well grounded in theory. I’ve taught practicum and internship courses to both master and doctoral counseling and psychology for 27 years, and I can say that this text is an exceptional resource for both students and faculty on both academic levels and across disciplines. This book speaks to students, offering a strengths-based model that they can adapt for use with clients, and is a highly needed resource."
