Abstract

This report provides a complete and full description of a three month, full-time counselling internship completed at the Child and Adolescent Guidance Service, Western Memorial Regional Hospital, Corner Brook, Newfoundland, April - July, 1987. Included is a description of the internship setting, a report of a research study undertaken during the period, goals that were met during the three month period, and the activities that were undertaken to fulfill the internship objectives. A rationale for choosing the internship and the details of intern supervision are also described. -- The internship setting, the Child and Adolescent Guidance Service, was deemed appropriate by the intern and his supervisors because a) Supervision could be on-going and comprehensive, and b) the multi-disciplinary guidance team could provide an opportunity for involvement in a wide variety of professional counselling services. -- Specific internship goals and activities to meet these goals were established with the approval of the intern's supervisors. The details of the accomplished professional activities are provided. -- The research study conducted during the internship investigated the effectiveness of a ten week group treatment programme, "The Supper Club" for adolescents from abusive homes. The treatment group members were asked to complete the Offer Self-Image Questionnaire before and after the ten week programme. The Family Relations scale of this questionnaire was analyzed to determine participants level of change following the treatment period. While the overall group did not show significantly increased positive perceptions of family relations, individuals within the group showed significant growth through items of the scale studied. -- The report makes recommendations for the appropriateness of the internship as a training option for the counsellor training period.
