Supervision of Clinical Mental Health Counselors
The purpose of supervised clinical experiences is to provide students with clinical mental health counseling practice while they are learning how to become effective mental health counselors. The intent is to help our students gain experience in areas of clinical mental health counselor preparation as defined in the 2016 Standards of the American Mental Health Counselor Association: clinical assessment; diagnostic impression and treatment of mental disorders; prevention and clinical intervention; ethical, legal and practice foundations; diversity and advocacy; research and outcome evaluation. Field experiences in off-site internships provide clinical mental health counseling students with opportunities to practice individual, family, and small group counseling skills, consultation, collaboration, advocacy and leadership skills taught in graduate programs.
