The internship was carried out at the West Essex Secondary Tutorial Unit, Harlow, England, from April 1985 to July 1985. Memorial University of Newfoundland operates a campus in Harlow for students who wish to complete an internship program as partial fulfillment of a degree program. The Harlow campus consists of a library, lecture facilities, dormitory, kitchen, and dinning hall. -- The main purpose of the internship program was to enhance the skills of the intern and to apply theory to real life situations. -- During the course of the internship program the intern experienced and improved his skills in the areas of: individual counselling; group counselling; case conferencing; parent meetings; and, report writing. The intern also further developed his skills in communication with community agencies; worked with students at all levels of the educational continuum; and attended information sessions on multiculturalism, Gypsy education, the Spastic Society, and the British education system. -- The intern studied a special topics course entitled Counselling Parents of Exceptional Children, 6852 and completed several presentations to undergraduate student teacher interns on this topic. -- The research component of the internship was conducted to determine if a relationship exists between assertiveness and job satisfaction for student teacher interns. The results show a significant negative correlation for the subjects (r = -.41, p,>.05, N = 19) and suggest the need for further research in this area. -- The report concludes with a summary of the internship program.
