Course Description

The doctoral internship is designed to provide students with supervised experiences that reflect the activities of a regularly employed professional in the field of counselor education. All doctoral interns must have internship experiences in supervision, teaching, and one additional doctoral competency (counseling, research, or leadership / advocacy). Under the guidance of faculty and supervisors, the primary focus of the supervision internship is to help doctoral students develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required for ethical and competent practice as supervisors in the field of counseling and counselor education.

For information regarding prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.

Rationale

The doctoral internship experience is considered one of the capstone events in the doctoral students’ program of study. In this course, students gain supervised experience in the supervision activities of a regularly employed professional in the field of counselor education. Under the mentorship of faculty and supervisors, students will continue to develop the personal qualities, characteristics, and behaviors of a supervisor as they transition from “Doctoral Student” to “Counselor Educator.” As future faculty and supervisors, students will participate in the activities required of faculty providing supervision of entry-level counseling practicum students. To ensure that the internship provides students with a well-rounded experience, students will have supervision experiences in both individual and group supervision. Particular attention is given to students’ professional growth and development during this supervised internship experiences.
