A Differential Approach to Consultation Training during Internship
Newman, Daniel; Cocol, Pamela; Coffin, Teresa
Communique, v39 n3 p8-10 Nov 2010
The authors of this article were brought together by a common goal: enhancing consultation skills during internship year. As the concluding experience of preservice training, the school psychology internship provides an opportunity for trainees to move from novice levels of skill awareness and limited application toward more competent practice. The purpose of this article is to consider the important role that internship year can have in enhancing the development of consultation skills for school psychologists in training. The article describes the critical features of consultation training, including supervision, that facilitate the professional growth of consultants-in-training (CITs). The differentiated experiences in consultation training purposefully provided by the authors' supervisors at their mutual internship locale of Howard County Public School System (HCPSS) in Maryland are discussed.
