E-Book of the Week: Counseling Practicum and Internship Manual

Hodges, Shannon. Counseling Practicum and Internship Manual: A Resource for Graduate Counseling Students. New York: Springer Publishing Company, 2010.

This book is an excellent tool for graduate counseling students as they apply for and complete internships and practica. It provides helpful advice on how to select and apply for internships/practica. It also walks students through some of the issues they will probably face while completing their internships/practica, including ethical issues, multicultural issues, how to manage stress, crisis intervention, and how to terminate the counseling relationships at the end of the practicum/internship. The book also addresses practical matters such as clinical writing skills and what students can expect during the classroom component of their internship/practicum and their site supervision.
