Abstract

This document reports on a ten-week internship completed at the Avalon East School Board in St. John's, Newfoundland in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Education in School Psychology. Part one of the document describes the setting, discusses the reasons for the choice of the placement, states the goals pursued, and reports on how these goals were met. Suggestions are offered to future interns considering a school board level placement. -- Part two reports on the required research component of the internship. Sixty Kindergarten to grade 12 counselors in an urban school board responded to a 25-point questionnaire surveying their involvement in parenting skills training programs and their views on the appropriateness of these programs. Questions were asked about the reasons for offering a program, the types of programs used, parent and school acceptance, delivery considerations and the actual or potential impact of such programs. The survey found that half of the counselors who responded offered training programs and that the STEP program was the one most frequently used. A significant number of counselors would recommend offering a program again.
