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...show moredministrator 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.
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!-Added competencies in Chapter 4 include managed care, diversity and technology.
