A core text/reference for Internships, Practicums, and Field Placements in Psychology, Social Work, Counseling, and related helping disciplines.Acknowledging, anticipating, and addressing the everyday questions, anxieties, fears, and concerns of interns, this practical handbook bridges the gap between academic coursework and the knowledge, skills, and emotional challenges that are found in the "real world" of the helping professions. Organized both chronologically and topically, the text begins with practical suggestions for how one finds an internship and concludes with how one terminates cases and looks ahead to career options.
