Practicum in Career and Personal Counseling
The Practicum course is designed to give students supervised experience in vocational evaluation and short-term personal counseling for members of the community who seek services at the Dean Hope Center for Educational and Psychological Services, the in-house training clinic for Teachers College. Supervision takes a variety of forms, including small group discussion of professional issues, collaborative group supervision of both the student’s own assigned case and those of her peers, review of video-recorded counseling sessions, and review of chart documentation according to center protocols. The Practicum culminates in a formal case conceptualization paper and oral presentation.
