This is a report of an Educational Psychology internship which was conducted at multiple clinical sites in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. These sites included the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Interdisciplinary Team, the Recovery Center (Addiction Services), and the H. Khalili & Associates independent practice/community agency. All of these sites are community focused public and private agencies. -- The internship was conducted between September 7 and December 15, 1999. The report consists of an overview, a research component, and a reflective journal. Chapter One gives an overview and a report of the internship goals and objectives and the activities undertaken by the intern to meet these goals and objectives. -- Chapter Two, the research component, provides a current literature review and a research study on the intern's evaluation of an eclectic stress management program. -- Chapter Three presents the findings and a discussion of the results is given. -- The results of this study show that an eclectic stress management program in a group psychoeducational setting increased the participants' knowledge and decreased the level of anxiety among the participants. Therefore, the use of an eclectic stress management program is highly significant in a group psychoeducational setting. Implications and recommendations are highlighted for the reader. -- Chapter Four, the reflective journal, provides a brief account of the weekly internship activities, experiences, and contributions to the intern's professional growth and development as a counsellor.
