GPSA704 Fieldwork Seminar | SUMMER

Instructor: Dr. Vicki Semel-4 credits
Thursdays 4:50-5:40pm Tutorial weekly with fieldwork on site hours
The Fieldwork experience provides an opportunity to apply theory and practice counseling and psychoanalytic techniques through
practicing in a clinical setting under supervision. GPSA 704 is taken in the summer or when the student has not completed the
required number of total fieldwork hours, fieldwork paper or presentation by the completion of course GPSA703. The student
remains enrolled in the GPSA 701-704 course sequence until the fieldwork study, paper and presentation are completed. As the
student moves through the fieldwork sequence, the student has increasing ability for independence and develops professional
identity. The student learns advanced techniques to enable individuals to tolerate more comfortably the stimulation of the
therapeutic experience, and that allow them to more freely talk with the counseling professional. The importance of professional,
ethical and cultural issues will be examined throughout the course. Students collect an audio recording once each semester and
either lead or co-lead a counseling or psychoeducational group in addition to individual work with clients. ACAP &BGSP-NJ (Cert
