AODA Internship I - Part 2

Barbara Jordan, MS
In this course, students must observe a certified counselor performing all or most of the functions of AODA counseling outlined by the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing (DRL). Prior to and during this course, students will be expected to work with the faculty to secure a state certified AODA internship site. An additional pre-requisite of this course includes completing and passing a caregiver background check so that the student can then begin the fieldwork experience during this semester. The first internship experience includes 100 hours at the internship site (of which the first 50 should be observation) and 15 hours away from the site to meet with the course instructor on a weekly basis. This experience must be under the direct supervision of a certified clinical AODA supervisor.
