As Mentoring Flourishes, So Does the Intern
Bonura, Sandee
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n8 2006
All university counselors-in-training complete internships under a "qualified" veteran. With a "swim or sink" mentality, an enthusiastic/competent student can be reduced to an insecure and discouraged intern, because supervisors don't have essential mentoring skills. Beliefs and attitudes are acquired/internalized during internship and veterans influence this experience and ensuing attitudes profoundly. Without quality mentorship, interns may perceive themselves ill suited for the profession. Simply put, when mentoring flourishes, everyone benefits.
