About This Course

This summative course brings together content area knowledge acquired in all courses in the program and applies it to clinical practice for the first time. The first half of the course provides the groundwork for the development of a professional portfolio, a reflective collection and analysis of work completed in the program. The portfolio serves to synthesize foundational knowledge and self-reflective development as a future clinician. The second half of the course bridges the gap between content knowledge and clinical application and equips students with practical knowledge related to the clinical realities of substance use and mental health treatment and provide supervision of the first 140 hours of internship. This comprehensive course is designed to help students develop and refine counseling skills and foster the growth of a professional counselor identity. With a focus on the Twelve Core Functions of substance use disorder counseling and direct client service, including a minimum of 40 hours of direct service experience, participants advance their proficiency in evidence-based practices.
