The Practicum with Seminar is designed to support graduate level professional counseling students in their ongoing development as counseling practitioners. To that end, students will be provided with a variety of experiences, both on and off campus, that will promote an increased awareness of the various roles and clinical skills required of the professional counselor. Course objectives will include increasing the graduate student?s understanding of the operations of a counseling organization (e.g. clinic, college counseling center, etc.), helping the students identify other skills that contribute to their effectiveness as professional counselors, and providing experiences that enhance students individual and group counseling skills. Students are required to complete 100 contact hours in a counseling setting, which includes 40 hours of direct counseling experience. Students will be challenged to become increasingly aware of personal qualities relevant to the effective practice of professional counseling and to acquire insight into the supervision process and the role of the supervisee in the counseling process. Ethical and professional behavior will be emphasized. 3 credits
