About this course:

The Supervised Field Work Practicum, extending over two quarters, is designed for students who have completed the prerequisite courses in the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counseling Certificate.

The classroom meetings are a combination of lecture, supervision, and experiential processes. The goal is to create an environment in which the students will experiment with counseling skills, take "safe risks" in expanding their counseling repertoire, and receive support from their peers, and guidance from the instructor. Students will increase confidence and knowledge, both in the clinical aspects of counseling and legal requirements related to the operations of addiction treatment centers. Emphasis will be placed on core aspects of counseling. Students will participate in supervised groups to practice counseling techniques and will interact with guest speakers during lectures.
