School Counseling Internship
This two-semester course is generally your final step in our CACREP approved program. It is also a core requirement in becoming certified as a school counselor. To be in this course you must simultaneously be participating in either a full or part-time internship within a school setting under the supervision of a certified school counselor with at least two years experience.
This course is designed to allow you to share and reflect on your internship experiences, to gain support and feedback from your peers, to problem solve on challenging situations, and to integrate your clinical experiences with theory. It is intended to be a safe place where you are with others who are going through similar experiences, where you can maintain a connection to UConn, and where you have direct access to a senior member of the faculty. For each seminar, you should be prepared to present some topic, issue or concern emanating from your internship experience that you want to discuss with the others.
This course is also aligned with several of the basic tenants/elements of the Neag School of Education’s conceptual framework. The tenants addressed in this course and their relationship to the skills, competencies and knowledge to be expected from the totality of the internship experience are described in the section below on course objectives.
