PS 450 - Capstone: Practicum I


The first in a two-semester sequence, Practicum 1 provides an introduction to the theory, skills and processes associated with the helping relationship. In addition, it is designed to aid students in the development of self-awareness in interpersonal relations and the practice of communication and helping skills. Students spend 8-10 hours per week working at an approved human services internship site learning experientially. The classroom provides an arena for discussion of students’ challenges at internship, allowing for peer and faculty supervision and the cultivation of self- and other-awareness and basic clinical skills.
