DAR* 251 - Counseling Internship I


6 credits
Provides students with the experience of 225 hours per semester in a substance use disorder treatment facility, weekly seminar and other approved activities under the joint supervision of the DARC program and a credentialed supervisor at the facility. Students will observe the treatment process from intake to discharge. Students will observe, practice, and develop competency in the 8 domains of addiction counseling. As students develop increased competence, they will progress from active observers to co-counselors, and then to counselors. To enhance the field experience, students will continue academic study during a weekly seminar. Students will be expected to reflect on their fieldwork, participate in clinical supervision as well as peer group interaction and continue their research in support of counseling theories.
Prerequisite(s): DAR* 101 , DAR* 111 , DAR* 112  and DAR* 158 ; ENG* 101  with a “C” or better within five years and permission of the program coordinator. Internship classes must be completed in consecutive semesters. If a student is unable to complete DAR* 252  in the spring following DAR 251, DAR 251 will need to be taken again. (This is the selective admission component of the DARC program which begins in the fall semester).
