C 6491 Field Experience: Mental Health Counseling I
This course requires the student to arrange an independent and appropriate clinical practicum in an approved counseling setting. While engaged in a practicum, the student must be directly supervised by an appropriately licensed or certified therapist. 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 activity of the student is closely monitored by the course instructor and the field-site supervisor. Expected student outcomes include submission of a reflective journal that chronicles the student’s growth and development and satisfactory field evaluations.
