Staffing Clients for Counselor Trainee Assignment in a Counseling Practicum Clinic.
Anzivino, Susan A.
A staffing model for client assignment to graduate-level counselor trainees in the Counseling Practicum Clinic of the Department of Counseling Psychology at Ball State University is presented. Staffing and assignment procedures for this clinic which serves approximately 300 non-student clients and 50-60 counselor trainees each quarter, are described, and related forms (Intake Form, Affirmation Form, Counselor Request for Clients Form) are identified and explained. Criteria for client assignment are delineated along with components of the model, including the end-of-quarter transition procedures designed to assure continuity of care for clients and opportunity for counselor trainee consultation. The staffing model evaluation by the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision accreditation team is reviewed, and client satisfaction reports and student practicum evaluations are described as most positive.
