Overview

THE SUCCESSFUL INTERNSHIP offers students more than just a resource on how to find a position or how to interview; it addresses the concerns, emotions, needs, and unique personal challenges that are the essence of an internship or field experience. The authors describe in detail the path of change students will find themselves embarking on and the challenges they will face along the way, and they provide clear, concrete tools that build the foundation for students' successful field/practicum experience. The book's five-stage model of the internship process—anticipation, disillusionment, confrontation, competence, and culmination—places the material in a meaningful framework that lends structure to students' understanding of the work they will be doing.
