Practicum Learnings for Counseling and Art Therapy Students: The Shared and the Particular
Van Lith, Theresa; Voronin, Lorelei
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v38 n3 p177-193 Sep 2016
Practicum experience in counseling and therapy training can be an anxiety-inducing time as students begin to apply their acquired theoretical knowledge. On-site supervisors closely monitor students' development by making use of example-based involvements to provide valuable insights and learning opportunities. This paper examines the findings from a pragmatic inquiry, where seven on-site supervisors were interviewed about their experiences supervising counseling and art therapy practicum students. By using qualitative analysis, the authors were able to elicit themes that demonstrated important qualities for all counseling and therapy students during this learning stage, as well as for art therapy students in particular.
