Where do I fit in the organization? How can I deal effectively with my supervisors? How do I handle legal and ethical issues? These are some of the most pressing issues interns face when they make the transition from the classroom to the "real world." The authors succeed in creating a book that is thought-provoking and invaluable to human services, counseling, and social work students. The authors draw upon their years of extensive experience--Chiaferi as a psychotherapist and Griffin as a clinical social worker--to provide a first-hand, humanistic, and personable approach to the fieldwork course, effectively addressing the fears and anxieties common to individuals at various stages in their practicum experience.
