Abstract

This report provides an overview of an educational psychology internship at Bishops College, Avalon East School Board. The placement component includes a rationale for the choice of internship route, description of internship setting, specific goals and objectives, a description of the internship activities, and the intern's personal reflections on the internship experience. The research component focuses on an evaluation of the effectiveness of a career development program for parents of senior high students, entitled "Parents As Partners in their teen's career development". The hypothesis that parents would become more informed and involved in selected aspects of the career development process of their teenage children by participating in the three participatory workshops was supported by the research findings. Qualitative data provided further support for the hypothesis. Post-assessment evaluations provided support for the overall effectiveness of the program. Recommendations for future research and career development programming are included.
