The Practicum Seminar provides supervision for students in their first clinical practice experience. The course focuses on student growth and the development of skills, behaviors and attitudes of a professional counselor; including discussion of factors that influence the counseling relationship, such as the effective use of supervision. Students participate in weekly individual, triadic, and/or group supervision in order to explore students’ experiences at the practicum site, practice clinical skills, reflect on personal and professional growth, and discuss the role of intern and the supervisory relationship. Clinical work samples are shared and discussed with the program supervisor and peers throughout the semester.
