Abstract

The intern spent half time at a high school and half time between two elementary schools. An outline is given of the many goals set by the intern and the activities she took part in to accomplish these goals. A detailed description of the intern's supervision and evaluation is also included. -- The second part of this report describes a research study of parenting of adolescents and parenting programs in rural areas, specifically, the need for and the effectiveness of the Active Parenting of Teens program in rural areas was studied. Structured interviews were used in the assessment of the program's suitability for a rural setting. -- The internship component provided the intern with an excellent opportunity for personal growth and professional development.
