The rationale for this internship was to provide the intern the opportunity to further her knowledge, to refine her skills and competencies and to develop confidence to be capable of implementing and carrying out a guidance program. This internship report provides a comprehensive report of the professional activities engaged in during the five month internship at Beaconsfield High School, St. John's, Newfoundland, November 1976 to March 1977 inclusive. -- Detailed objectives and specific activities previously submitted and approved by the Department of Educational Psychology, Memorial University, August 1976, are analyzed and evaluated, and include reactions by the intern. Included in these objectives is a research component on the effectiveness of counselor-initiated counseling on self-concept enhancement of low self-concept students as identified by the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale. Results indicate that while the findings were non-significant at the 0.05 level of probability, statistical evidence presented suggests that the treatment worked for some students and not for others. -- Chapter I provides an introduction and statement of objectives of the internship. Chapter II gives a detailed analysis and evaluation of each objective of the internship with a reaction by the intern. Chapter III concludes the report with a summary of the internship experience.
