SUPERVISED PRACTICE IN REHABILITATION Overview and Welcome

The Rehabilitation Counseling faculty at California State University, San Bernardino welcomes you to your practicum classes, which are the first part of the important clinical experience of the Rehabilitation Counseling Master’s program. The faculty will work with you to transition from classroom learning to application of rehabilitation counseling skills in the field.

The clinical portion of the program consists of two practicum courses and three fieldwork courses. The practicum courses are completed before you begin your fieldwork experience in the community. In both practicum and fieldwork experiences, you will be working with persons with disabilities and you will be supervised by a faculty member. All of the clinical experiences in the CSUSB Rehabilitation Counseling

program meet the guidelines of the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE). In both practicum and fieldwork/internship, you will have a regularly scheduled class in

conjunction with your practice in the field.

You will learn the following skills during your practica courses:

 Demonstrate an understanding of disability and rehabilitation during counseling.  Apply new insights and understanding of rehabilitation counseling ethics and

strategies during counseling sessions.

 Apply the dynamics of rehabilitation counseling and the rehabilitation process to real counseling experiences.

 Develop an understanding of the practice of rehabilitation counseling.

 Develop an understanding of ethics in the rehabilitation counseling process.  Demonstrate interviewing skills with clients.

 Develop listening skills.

 Demonstrate therapeutic and ethical conditions toward persons and students with disabilities.

 Become familiar with various counseling strategies for intervention with psychological or developmental problems.

 Develop an understanding of diversity and multiculturalism in counseling.  Demonstrate empathy toward people from diverse cultures.

 Demonstrate the ability to effectively use the counseling skills of empathy, non-verbal behavior, respect, genuineness, concreteness, immediacy, self-disclosure, confrontation and goal setting by working with persons with disabilities.

 Apply theoretical counseling concepts to counseling practice.

 Acquire skills necessary to evaluate one’s own counseling strengths and weaknesses.

COURSE CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES

Supervised practice in the Rehabilitation Counseling master’s degree program at California State University San Bernardino is designed to provide students with the opportunity for practical rehabilitation counseling experience with persons of varying ages who have various disabilities.

PRACTICUM EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS / APPLICATION

Practicum I and Advanced Practicum courses require a total of 100 hours (50 hours in each course) of practical experience in a facility that provides services to individuals with disabilities. Of the 50 hours in each practicum experience, 20 hours per quarter are to be in direct service to persons with disabilities (see Appendices Dand Efor log

(8)

sheets). Practicum experiences shall include an average of one (1) hour per week of individual or 1½ hours per week of group (with no more than 10 students/group)

supervision by a program faculty member or qualified individual working in cooperation with a program faculty member. The student is encouraged to select different sites for each practicum experience.

Students must complete the Practicum Application (see Appendix A) at the end of the quarter prior to the first Practicum experience. The application is to be submitted to the Program Coordinator who will provide final authorization for enrollment into the

Practicum I and Advanced Practicum courses. A copy is to also be provided to the faculty supervising your practicum class. Students must also complete the Practicum Application prior to admittance into the Advanced Practicum course. The same application is to be used for both courses. Successful completion of EREH 615 and EREH 656 are required prior to admission into Practicum I and successful completion of EREH 657 is required prior to admission into Advanced Practicum. Successful

completion of both Practicum I and Advanced Practicum is required before admission into the Fieldwork course.

For purposes of critique and evaluation, audiotaped and/or videotaped individual and/or group sessions will be required for Practicum I; videotaped individual and/or group sessions will be required for Advanced Practicum. Intake type interviews will not fulfill these requirements.

Students have the responsibility for following agency and program procedures, both for securing permission to tape and insuring the confidentiality of the obtained tape (see Appendix F).

Students are encouraged to have a CRC site supervisor during the entire Practicum experience.

Working with Faculty during Practicum

During both practicum experiences, you will be a student working with a CSUSB Rehabilitation Counseling Faculty Member. This Faculty Member will work with you to establish your community involvement. It is important for students to pre-arrange all community observations and counseling in agencies with their professor. You will have a site supervisor assigned to you at the agency. A Practicum Contract (see Appendix B) must be signed between the student, the agency representative, and the university supervisor. The student will work with the site supervisor and the university supervisor in the final determination of learning objectives for the Practicum experiences. Students needing special accommodations during any part of their Clinical Experiences are to contact the Program Coordinator.

Students are expected to demonstrate ethical behavior during their practicum and community visitations. Students will be evaluated (see Evaluation Section, page 11;

(9)

also, Appendices C and G for more details) in accordance with university and program requirements for successful completion of the Practicum experiences.

Any areas of significant deficiencies will be addressed through a Corrective Action Plan that is developed in collaboration with the university supervisor, site supervisor, and the student. (See Appendix I & J.)

A copy of the Code of Ethics for Rehabilitation Counseling can be found on the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC) website at

http://www.crccertification.com/pages/crc_ccrc_code_of_ethics/10.php. The CRCC phone number is 847-944-1325, which is located in Schaumburg, Illinois.

SELECTING A PRACTICUM SITE

Students and the Faculty Supervisor will discuss possible practicum sites; however, students are responsible for securing placement.

To secure a practicum site, the student should begin by arranging an on-site interview with the potential practicum supervisor. The student should provide a personal resume to the agency. The interview process provides an opportunity for both the student and the agency to clearly delineate their expectations for the practicum experience. If the agency representative believes that the student's and the agency's particular

experiences or expectations are mismatched, the placement may be declined. When this occurs, the student must seek another placement site.

CRITERIA FOR SELECTING PRACTICUM SITE Agency Selection:

1. Agencies should be selected that have a primary function of serving people with disabilities; this may also include agencies that serve the socially disadvantaged. 2. Agencies should have a broad variety of rehabilitation services that are

designed to serve persons with disabilities.

3. Agencies should be recognized in the community as a viable agency with appropriate accreditation (if it exists for that agency).

4. Agencies should be able to provide assurances that they can provide adequate and appropriate opportunities for the student to work with people with physical, mental, psychological, chemical dependency / addicition, and social disabilities. Qualifications of Site Supervisor:

Supervisor qualifications include:

1. Appropriate academic training at the Master's or Doctorate level.

2. Work experience that will provide the practicum student with a proper orientation to the field of rehabilitation.

3. An interest and willingness to become a part of an academic training program. 4. Flexibility of schedule that allows the necessary time required for training and

(10)

5. Sufficient experience and/or education in area of counseling or interpersonal relationships to provide practicum students with insight in interviewing and/or counseling techniques.

6. Familiarity with the working relationship with other community agencies. RESPONSIBILITIES FOR PRACTICUM STUDENT, SITE SUPERVISOR, AND

UNIVERSITY SUPERVISOR Student Responsibilities:

1. Maintain regular attendance schedule and complete all assignments. 2. Conform to agency rules, regulations, and standards.

3. Demonstrate an awareness of personal skills and limitations by taking initiative when appropriate, yet seeking assistance when necessary.

4. Keep a log of all activities and reactions. The log should include: (a) date and number of hours spent at the practicum site.

(b) description of activities (e.g., interviewing, personal or vocational counseling, interaction with staff and other professionals, planning, in

service training, utilization of community resources, placement activities, attendance at conferences, workshops, observing similar activities of

Rehabilitation Counselors and any other job duties performed). (c) weekly personal reaction to activities performed (Appendix D).

5. Establish personal objectives to be met during the practicum experience (see Appendix B, Practicum contract).

6. Provide an evaluation report of the practicum experience. 7. Abide by the CRCC Code of Ethics.

Site Supervisor Responsibilities:

Agencies should assign one staff member to direct the practicum experience. This supervisor may assign the student to other professional staff in the agency but is responsible for making sure the student's assignments best meet the needs of the student and the agency. The practicum site supervisor is responsible for planning, assigning practicum duties, observing and monitoring the student’s work performance as well as setting up priorities in terms of work tasks.

On-site supervision includes:

1. Assign work according to the student's level of competence based on the student's education, experience level, and objectives.

2. Schedule weekly conferences to review the work of the student and to monitor work performance. This enables both the student and supervisor to modify the practicum experience to meet the needs of both parties.

3. Communicate with the University Supervisor if any problems arise and give feedback regarding the student’s quality of work.

(11)

4. Abide by the ethical standards of the Rehabilitation Counseling profession and/or the ethical standards of the primary professional organization of the agency supervisor.

5. Completion of final evaluation of student's work. University Supervisor Responsibilities

1. Review progress of the practicum student on a regular basis. 2. Provide written progress reports to student.

3. Contact practicum Site Supervisor at least twice within the quarter.

4. Reserves the right of final retention or dismissal of the student, and agrees to withdraw the student from the practicum site when the student's practice and/or behavior does not meet minimum standards of the Agency and is so requested by the Agency Supervisor.

EVALUATION PROCESS

The student's performance during the practicum is evaluated by the site supervisor and university supervisor. After the practicum objectives have been delineated, the student will be evaluated at the end of the quarter. Other scheduled evaluations may be performed at the request of any of the three parties. If a student is deemed to be

proceeding in an unsatisfactory manner in a Practicum course, a report will be prepared by the University Supervisor summarizing both the points of concerns and a specific action plan for remediation, including specific recommendations, behavioral outcomes, and deadlines for review that offer a realistic opportunity for the student to experience an ultimately successful practicum experience. Successful completion of the Corrective Action Plan is required in order for the student to receive a passing grade in the

Practicum course. (See Appendices C, G, J, & I.)

VERIFICATION OF LIABILITY INSURANCE

Provide a copy of the face sheet of the professional liability insurance coverage that includes policy number and dates of coverage. Professional liability insurance must be in place at the time of the application for Practicum I and Advanced Practicum.

REHABILITATION COUNSELING PROGRAM Community Resources

The student is responsible for locating a practicum site; however, the Program

Coordinator or faculty supervisor may provide you with some assistance. All practicum sites need final approval of the Program Coordinator. During both practicum classes, you will be supervised in the field by the site supervisor. Your faculty instructor may also conduct a site visit. Students may complete a portion of the practicum experiences at their employment sites; however, students will be required to engage in new learning activities appropriate to the practicum experience.

The following are some of the community sites that students have used in the past for both practicum and fieldwork experiences. This is not an exhaustive or all inclusive listing.
