This practical and succinct book guides students through each stage of the often-complicated internship process, offering resources that will prove valuable even after their internships are complete. The text is built on the experience of three established authors known in their fields: Chris Faiver, a supervisor to students in the field for over 25 years; Sheri Eisengart, a clinician, researcher, and former student of Faiver; and Ronald Colonna, a professional and administrator from an agency that frequently serves as a placement site for interns. Because the text can be used from state to state, it also serves as a perfect study guide for certification and state and national licensure examinations.
