Abstract

The purpose of the internship was to provide the intern with an opportunity to expand his knowledge and to improve his counselling skills under supervised conditions. The rationale basic to the internship was that these experiences would help the intern develop, introduce and conduct more effective counselling programs. The internship, extending over the English spring school term, beginning in April and ending in July 1980, was undertaken at Princess Alexandra Psychiatric Hospital and the West Essex Secondary Tutorial Unit in Harlow, England. -- During this period, opportunities were provided for the intern to: develop an insight into the role of the counsellor in Harlow, England; gain further knowledge and experience in counselling theories and techniques; develop competency in individual and group counselling; become familiar with the consultation process; develop an awareness of the terminology, remediation and contemporary ideas in the field of special education; gain experience in the administration and interpretation of individual assessment procedures unfamiliar to the intern; and, to visit community support services and alternative counselling programs in Harlow, Epping and Loughton, England. -- The purpose of the research component was to conduct an internal consistency study on the Memorial University of Newfoundland Scale of Happiness (MUNSH), developed by Kozma and Stones (1980). Since the scale was developed with a Newfoundland population of elderly subjects, there remained some question as to the internal consistency of the instrument with an urban sample from a different culture. The MUNSH maintained a reliable internal consistency when used as a measure of mental well-being for elderly citizens in England.
