Counselor Education and Supervision, v44 n2 p121-134 Dec 2004
The authors describe instructional methods used to teach comprehensive and individualized case conceptualization and treatment planning in a graduate-level Advanced Counseling Procedures course. Students participate in a theory-driven, simulated multidisciplinary treatment team and meet with recruited client actors to bring "to life" the process of integrating multiple clinical perspectives into a cohesive service plan for a client. Feedback from students and recommendations for course enhancement are provided.
