MCCP 681 - Practicum in Community Psychology I

Each practicum consists of 128 hours of applied experience in either adult psychological services, child and family services, or alcohol and drug abuse services. The first planned, supervised practicum will be spent in a hospital or community mental health clinic, where students will be exposed to the workings of a clinically oriented treatment facility and will begin practice in screening, intakes, diagnostic evaluations, treatment planning and clinical counseling. A seminar under faculty direction and supervision will accompany each practicum experience. In subsequent practica, students will continue to acquire experience in their chosen tracks, but will also be required to maintain an assigned course load and participate in case conferences under the direct supervision of qualified clinical staff within their assigned agencies.
