Abstract

The internship was carried out primarily at the Waterford Hospital in St. John's, Newfoundland from May 15, 1989 to August 11, 1989. Other settings included the Pre-Vocational Training and Assessment Centre and the Children's Rehabilitation Centre, both also located in St. John's. -- During this internship opportunities were provided for the intern to: (a) further develop and enhance both personal and professional skills in individual counselling, group counselling and consultation; (b) gain experience in the administration, scoring, interpretation, and application of a wide range of instruments used in the assessment of intellectual and cognitive abilities and behavior and personality functioning; (c) develop greater awareness of the issues involved in the assessment, management and delivery of services to mentally retarded clients; and (d) gain experience with the rehabilitation services provided to children with physical and developmental disabilities. -- The research component of the internship was conducted to determine if the Jesness Inventory could be used to discriminate between adjudicated juvenile offenders in a residential custodial facility and non-offending juvenile students receiving remedial academic instruction in rural Newfoundland. The results show significant differences between the groups on the Social Maladjustment, Autism and Asocial Index scales at the.05 level of confidence using two-tailed t-tests.
