Abstract

This report describes an 11-week internship at Eugene Vaters Academy and Junior High located in St. John's. During the internship, I engaged in many professional activities which enabled me to enhance and build on my skills as a counsellor. These activities included: individual counselling, group counselling, participating in case conferences, completing a variety of comprehensive assessments, participating in two inservices, administering developmental classroom guidance programs in personal safety and conflict resolution, and participating in school transition team meetings. -- I also had an opportunity to implement and deliver a Peer Helping Training Program at Eugene Vaters Junior High and to conduct research on the effectiveness of this training. In particular, the research was conducted to determine whether the training was effective in increasing the basic counselling skills of the participants. -- The results of this research study show that all participants demonstrated post-training gains in listening ability, empathic responding, empathic listening, and paraphrasing.
