Abstract

The chosen internship setting was the University Counselling Centre, Memorial University of Newfoundland. This placement allowed the intern to fulfil individual goals of learning and professional growth. It provided many opportunities for new learning experiences and learning through quality professional supervision. Specifically, the placement allowed the intern to engage in individual counselling with 53 clients whose concerns were of personal, career or of a mixed nature. She assisted students in finding academic and career information during regularly scheduled times spent in the Career Planning Centre. She participated in training meetings for Career Planning Centre personnel, case conference weekly meetings, Interpersonal Process Recall training, co-led an assertiveness training group, other training and a full day workshop. The culmination of training, activities and experiences during the internship enabled the intern to further develop her counselling skills, gain new knowledge and feel competent about related future employment. -- Additionally, the internship placement permitted the intern to develop a project aimed at assisting other new students in the Masters of Educational Psychology program. The University Counselling Centre is committed to the development of research by its staff, and the intern was allocated weekly research time.
