ns 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. Along the way students learn about ethics, diversity, supervision, clinical writing, liability issues, dangerousness, stress, self-care and other essential -- but often overlooked -- topics. It draws upon the latest research and information from psychology, psychiatry, social work, counseling, and other helping professions -- as well as extensive personal experience -- and includes exercises for self-exploration and discussion along with easily-removed forms for evaluations, critical information, ethics and other essential tasks.
