Abstract

This report presents a description of an internship in guidance and counselling at Prince of Wales Collegiate, St. John's, Newfoundland from September 1, 1976 to December 4, 1976. The rationale for doing the internship was to gain as many experiences in guidance and counselling under supervised conditions as possible, so as to apply theories and principles learned in the academic training component of the graduate guidance program. -- Supervision and evaluation of the internship were the shared responsibility of Mrs Elaine Shortall, field supervisor; Dr Terry Boak, university supervisor; and Dr Leroy Klaus, third committee member. Daily and bi-weekly meetings were held to discuss the progress being made. One requirement of the internship was to tape a number of individual and group counselling sessions. These tapes were reviewed and evaluated by the supervisors. -- A set of objectives was devised which would facilitate professional growth and development for the author. Throughout the internship period all of these objectives were adequately met. -- The research component dealt with the effectiveness of a study skills program. The Solomon Four Group Research Design was used to evaluate the two research hypotheses. The discussion of the results and the limitations of the study explain why the two hypotheses were rejected. Two recommendations for future research were given. -- An evaluation of the internship revealed it was a worthwhile and profitable experience.
