Practicum IV: Clinical Practice

SCH FP602 - Practicum IV: Clinical Practice

Credits: 2

This seminar provides support for the concurrent second year (15 hour/week) secondary level school-based practicum, which is also linked with the following concurrent courses: Consultation in Schools and Group Process and Group Therapy. The practicum seminar integrates the material learned in these courses with the practical aspects of providing treatment and educational interventions at the secondary level. Discussions address how to use available resources to provide mental health and academic benefits for students and their families, with a focus on databased decision-making and the three-tiered model. Students are expected to be administering assessments and providing interventions to support students’ social emotional and academic development. The practicum seminar provides a forum for students to discuss complex cases that they encounter in the field from an ecological perspective.
