This report provides a description and analysis of a fourteen week full time internship undertaken at Memorial University of Newfoundland Counselling Centre, May - August, 1981. It includes a description of the internship setting, objectives met during the internship, a description of the intern's supervision, and an analysis of a research study pursued to fulfill the internship requirements. -- The research study, conducted over a period of six two hour sessions, focused upon the efficacy of a cognitive learning group approach for the treatment of test anxiety with a group of university students. Treatment and control group participants were pre and post tested with the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory to establish their levels of anxiety. The treatment group showed a significantly lower level of text anxiety (p < .01) than the control group. -- The report makes recommendations for the appropriateness of the internship as an option for partial fulfillment of requirements for the Master of Education Degree in the area of Guidance and Counselling.
