Students will complete a supervised practicum experience in a school setting that totals a minimum of 100 clock hours. The student's practicum includes 40 hours of direct service with students including experience in individual counseling and group work. The practicum provides for the development and refinement of counseling skills under supervision. Students will have weekly interaction with an average of one hour per week of individual and/or triadic supervision which occurs regularly over a minimum of one academic term by a Sage faculty member or a supervisor working under the supervision of a Sage faculty member. Students will also have an average of one and one half hours per week of group supervision that is provided on a regular schedule over the course of the student's practicum by a Sage faculty member or a supervisor under the supervision of a Sage faculty member (CACREP STANDARD III: G3). The practicum addresses issues related to professional credentialing, including certification, licensure, and accreditation practices and standards, and the effects of public policy on these issues.
