This report describes an internship at the Calgary Learning Centre. The report details the internship and a research component which was completed at the internship site. The goals of the internship included: development of psychometric skills and report writing, development of individual counselling skills, increasing the knowledge of current intelligence, interest, achievement and diagnostic instruments and conducting research on the effectiveness of the problem solving strategies used at Camp ADDventure. -- The twelve week internship was completed at the Calgary Learning Centre, located in Calgary, Alberta. There was extensive opportunity to meet with the professional staff about services offered at the Centre and to gain insight into the varied theoretical perspectives of each psychologist. Throughout the placement the intern met with and provided psycho educational assessments with four staff psychologists. -- Much of the intern's time was devoted to researching the effectiveness of problem solving strategies used at Camp ADDventure on increasing socially-appropriate and self-corrective behaviours in children diagnosed with AD/HD.
