  • This edition of THE HUMAN SERVICES INTERNSHIP highlights new scholarship from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU) that identifies high quality internships as transformative learning experiences for students, and provides both students and faculty the tools they need to engage in this challenging work successfully.
  • Kiser offers a wealth of practical information for students just beginning their field experience, focusing on issues such as myths about internships, stages in the development of internships, development of a learning agreement, and getting to know the field placement agency.
  • The book offers solid coverage of the special skills of human service professionals--including those related to supervision, diversity, ethics, communication, oral and written reports, and emotions and stress in the workplace--while helping students understand and avoid common problems interns face.
  • Useful for students in all social science disciplines, THE HUMAN SERVICES INTERNSHIP presents a helpful six-step model readers can use during their internship and throughout their careers. This model includes careful observation, identification and application of relevant knowledge, reflection on personal reactions, identification of dissonance, articulating learning from the experience, and planning for the next step in their work and learning.
  • Reflections and other writing exercises give instructors the opportunity to provide supportive assistance, corrective feedback, prompts toward further reflection, and other feedback that can enhance students' internship experiences and learning. These writing exercises also help students connect knowledge with their experiences and to apply critical thinking skills in their work. These writing prompts can also be used as springboards for rich in-class discussions.
  • "Questions for Further Thought and Discussion," located at the end of each chapter and new to this edition, assist faculty in facilitating group discussions that go beyond the book's writing exercises. Recent scholarship on student learning in internships emphasizes the importance of discussion with peers and faculty. Consistent with this finding, faculty using this text have access to a wealth of ideas for generating meaningful discussions in their classes.
