The Internship in School Counseling: A National Survey of Counselor Training Programs.
Stickel, Sue A.
The purpose of this study was to gather information concerning how school counseling graduate training programs are meeting the challenges of providing practicum and internship experiences. Subjects were 186 (55% of 341 surveyed) program faculty from school counselor preparation programs. A national survey assessed the practices of counselor training programs in providing experiential components such as practica and internships for school counselors in training. Analyses indicated considerable diversity among training programs. Practices reflect continuing trends toward longer, more rigorous and accredited programs. Internships are viewed as highly positive. Work may be needed in the areas of consistency in expectation of activities performed during internship and the training and remuneration of site supervisors. Three tables present results from surveys given to the school counseling preparation faculties. (SR)
