CNED 596 Counseling Practicum (School Counseling)
This course incorporates a small groups seminar, peer and individually supervised counseling experiences in a public school site. As an essential element of the course, students are required to tape (cassette) counseling sessions for review by peers and the instructor. Other instructional materials on counseling trends and issues, handouts on guidelines for practice, and professional development activities will be provided. Students complete regular self-evaluations of their counseling techniques and development in class presentations, peer, and individual supervision. Students are evaluated by the instructor and the field supervisor and also have the opportunity to evaluate their site and field supervisor as well. Students spend a minimum of 180 hours/semester in a school setting under a school certified, tenured school counselor. Students will be expected to complete and display their counseling portfolios by the end of practicum. Students must attend a mandatory pre-practicum orientation the semester before they plan to do Practicum and must meet specific guidelines regarding placement. Practicum grade must be "B" or better to complete the degree program.
