General Practicum Information

The purpose of field practicum is to give the counselor-in-training an opportunity for supervised practical experience and an opportunity to apply counseling theories and knowledge of psychological assessment to professional practice. The clinical experiences provide an opportunity to assess the professional growth and development of the psychology student prior to graduation from the program.  The development of professional skills in the mental health profession begins during your practical experiences and is similar to an employed professional in training under direct supervision.
