REHB 601 - Internship and Seminar

Credits: 3
Students will work for an average of 20 hours per week (and complete a minimum of 300 hours for the entire semester) in a rehabilitation setting. At least forty percent of these hours (or 120 hours) will include direct client contact, while the remaining sixty percent of these hours (180 hours) can be indirect client contact. Students will attend a weekly seminar to discuss their experiences and to develop and increase effective counseling skills. Students will be required to complete readings from professional journals related to their internship experiences. The student’s agency experience must be primarily in the provision of direct counseling services. The internship must include a minimum of one hour, one on one, face-to-face supervision per week with an appropriate supervisor. In the classroom seminar, through lectures, group supervision, discussions, and role-playing, students will further develop their clinical skills. (In conjunction with course content, discussion, and assignments, students will demonstrate they are thinking, feeling, and acting critically, ethically, and culturally to strive for effective rehabilitation counseling practice).
Note: The internship must be supervised by an appropriate supervisor for an average of one hour per week in a one-to-one session.
