Counselor Intern's Handbook - 3rd edition

Counselor Intern`s Handbook (ISBN10: 053452835X; ISBN13: 9780534528355)
ISBN13: 978-0534528355
ISBN10: 053452835X

Summary: This practical and succinct book guides students through each stage of the often-complicated internship process, offering resources that will prove valuable even after their internships are complete. The text is built on the experience of three established authors known in their fields: Chris Faiver, a supervisor to students in the field for over 25 years; Sheri Eisengart, a clinician, researcher, and former student of Faiver; and Ronald Colonna, a professional and a
dministrator from an agency that frequently serves as a placement site for interns. Because the text can be used from state to state, it also serves as a perfect study guide for certification and state and national licensure examinations.

Benefits:
  • NEW!-Chapters were reorganized in response to reviewers for increased user-friendliness. For example, former Chapter 9 ("Counselor Self-Assessment") now appears as Chapter 2.
  • The authors provide an overview of psychological testing, ethics, interviewing strategies, treatment modalities, psychopharmacology, and various clinical and management issues with clients.
  • Chapter 1, "Getting Started," includes information on school, higher education, and EAP counselors.
  • Discussion of psychopharmacology encompasses such topics as understanding when and how to make referrals to physicians, assessing clients' feelings about medication, and encouraging compliance with medication regimens.
  • The appendices' practical forms and references, such as "Sample Resumes," "NBCC Coursework Requirements," and "Commonly Used Abbreviations," guide interns from internship towards their professional careers.
  • NEW!-Diversity and multicultural content infused throughout.
  • NEW!-Updated material on testing, such as current psychological tests and instruments used with children/adolescents and clinical populations, appears in Chapter 6.
  • NEW!-Chapter 7, "Understanding How to Help," includes a new section on Postmodern therapies, including narrative, solution-focused, and dialectical behavior therapy.
  • NEW!-Revised material in Chapter 8 includes psychopharmacology updates, further discussion of the most frequently used medications, new medications for Alzheimer's disease, brain structure and function, and a commentary on medications for children. The chapter also includes an entirely new section on herbal remedies.
  • NEW!-The new Intern's Log/Journal appendix offers interns a useful tool in which they can track their progress. Additional new appendices include technological competencies and a comprehensive table of psychotropic medications.
  • NEW!-The new Book Companion Web site offers a self-inventory, which enables students to evaluate themselves as they work to become professional counselors.
  • NEW!-Added competencies in Chapter 4 include managed care, diversity and technology.
  • The book presents the internship experience as a process, from selecting a site, to working with a site supervisor, to interviewing and testing, to termination. It includes chapters on self-examination, supervision, competencies, theories, testing, psychopharmacology, and practical situations.
