This report consists of two parts. The first section describes an internship completed at the Psychology Department of the Janeway Child Health Center, August 1993 to December 1993. It includes: a comprehensive report of the rationale for the internship; and a description of the setting, supervision, goals and professional activities of the intern during the internship placement.

In order to assess the perceptions of success, the Family Assessment Device and a researcher prepared follow-up questionnaire for the clients and therapists were administered.
