Clinical Experiences in Counseling, 1st edition

  • Bradley T. Erford


Clinical Experiences in Counseling gives interns and practicum students the practical, nitty-gritty information and skills they need to successfully complete their clinical experiences, and proudly join the counseling profession with confidence. Packed with case examples, self-assessments, activities, and “voices from the field,” it bridges the gap between theory and practice at the most critical juncture of their training—practicum and internship. Included is ready-to-use information on such critical topics as integrating theory and practice, building relationship, setting goals, record keeping, expectations and getting the most out of the supervision process, assessment and intervention, wellness and developing healthy work and personal habits, applying law and ethics in everyday practice, working with special issues and populations, self assessment, and more.
