Prerequisite: Refer to the Fieldwork Manual and advisor. This course is designed for students who are approved for

their application to clinical settings over the first 100 hours of the fieldwork experience (counseling practicum). In this
first Fieldwork segment, students are assisted in obtaining a Fieldwork placement, given early interviewing classroom
practice in the initial encounters, and encouraged to begin studying the counseling/therapeutic process as they learn to
recognize the various forms of psychopathology. The importance of ethical issues will be examined throughout the
course. Attendance at 2 conferences will be included in summer course hours. (Limited to 12 students) (4-cr)
