C 6490 Practicum in Mental Health Counseling
The practicum is beginning of the student’s supervised clinical training. Under supervision, the student completes 100 hours of clinical experienced in an appropriate counseling setting. The purpose of the field experience is to provide an opportunity to practice counseling skills in an applied setting under the supervision of an experienced practitioner and under the direction of an Argosy University faculty member. The student is required to arrange an appropriate practicum in an approved counseling setting. While engaged in a practicum, an appropriately licensed or certified therapist will directly supervise the student. The faculty seminar leader, in conjunction with the field-site supervisor, will monitor and evaluate the activity of the student. Expected student outcomes of the practicum include clinical experiences which contribute to the student’s growth and development as a counselor.
