Counseling Psychology Doctoral Program External Practicum Manual
Introduction
Eligible students (i.e., successful completion of practica sequence through APCE 712 and
approval of the External Practicum Coordinator) may apply for an external practicum placement
by enrolling in APCE 795 External Practicum. While the onus of initiative falls on the individual
student, the faculty, the individual site supervisor and the External Practicum Coordinator
determine final approval of external practicum placement. All External Practicum sites are
approved by the faculty during a regular program meeting. The External Practicum Coordinator
must also approve of the individual site (i.e., developmentally appropriate experiences available,
student/site goal alignment, and weekly onsite supervision from a licensed psychologist or other
mental health professional). When the supervisor is not a licensed psychologist (LP) on going
weekly opportunities exist for students to be supervised by faculty on campus who are LPs. The
objective is for students to gain diverse supervised experience in clinical and/or assessment
practice in a clinical site outside of the UNC Psychological Services Clinic while furthering their
communal networking skills; ideally the type of setting will align with student internship goals.
Ongoing placement evaluation will be conducted through: student self-report, site supervisor
evaluation, regular meetings with the External Practicum Coordinator, and in-class discussion of
any issues that arise during the fieldwork experience (e.g., evidence-based practice treatment
manuals, ethical, multicultural, supervisory, clinical, critical issues currently impacting the field).
Students attend bi-monthly group supervision meetings. The External Coordinator will make site
visits. Each site will be visited once per academic year. The site must provide a wide range of
training and educational experiences through applications of evidence-based practice procedures.
Students are a) encouraged to apply to sites that have an APA accredited internship and be
supervised by an LP, b) sites that have an APPIC internship and be supervised by a licensed
psychologist, c) other sites under the supervision of a licensed psychologist, and d) other sites
supervised by a mental health professional. Students typically complete a minimum of two
semesters of this course. В This manual includes information about external practica sites and requirements and procedures
to be followed. The practicum activities and requirements are based on standards from the
American Psychological Association (APA), Colorado licensure requirements, and Counseling
Psychology program faculty recommendations. В We realize that a practicum site may not be able to provide access to all the activities desired by
the student because of the differences that exist between individuals and institutions. The
practicum agreement will document the activities that can be provided at that site and supervised
by the signatory. The purpose of the practicum agreement is to provide a uniform practicum
experience for students, as well as guidance for supervisors entrusted with providing clinical and
administrative supervision.
3
Criteria for Selecting a Site
External practicum sites must be able to accommodate the following minimum requirements:
• Minimum of 60 direct client contact hours (i.e., counseling, assessment, consultation,
program evaluation)
• Minimum of 8 hours per week onsite and maximum of 20 hours per week on site
• Minimum of 1 hour per week of individual supervision, performed by the on-site
supervisor who must be a licensed mental health professional.
Process for Evaluating Students
If a student is not meeting the site’s expectations, the Counseling Psychology program
faculty will make a remediation plan with the site and give the student a deadline to demonstrate
improvement. If the student does not improve, the Counseling Psychology program faculty will
work with the site to remove the student.
Policies in the Event a Site Does Not Meet Expectations
If a site is not meeting the Counseling Psychology program’s expectations, the student is
to inform the external practicum instructor. The instructor will work with the student to resolve
the issue. If the issue cannot be resolved at the instructor/site level, the Counseling Psychology
program faculty will work with the site to dissolve our operating agreement in an ethical and
professional manner.
Practicum Policies
Sequence and Schedule Requirements
An external practicum is a field-based experience, which students have the option to take part in
after successful completion of two on campus doctoral practica (APCE 702 and APCE 712). See
course catalog for more information about the prerequisites courses. External practica require at
least a semester-long commitment to the practicum site. The number of hours spent at the site
will depend on the weekly hours agreed upon in the Site Agreement. (See p. 19)
Qualifications
The Counseling Psychology program must approve all external practicum positions. In order for
a position to be approved, a student must be academically prepared to work at the proposed site,
as evidenced by successful completion of APCE 702: Doctoral Practicum in Individual
Counseling and APCE 712: Advanced Practicum in Individual Counseling.
Ethical Behavior
Students are expected to demonstrate the highest level of ethical behavior, as set forth by the
American Psychological Association (APA). Unethical behavior will not be tolerated and will
be considered cause for dismissal at any time during the student's program. If students encounter
ethical dilemmas or ethically questionable behaviors, they are to address concerns with their site
supervisor and university supervisor.
Withdrawing from a Site
Occasionally students want to withdraw from a practicum site prior to completing their time
commitments. Given that sites make a commitment to our students when they offer them an EP
4
position, and early departures by our students need to be approved prior to leaving the site.
Students should submit a written request to their advisor explaining why they want to terminate
their EP placement early. They should clearly outline who they will ensure current clients are
appropriately transferred within their agency, how completion of paperwork will be ensured, etc.
The request to terminate an EP will then be brought to the CP faculty and discussed during a
regularly scheduled faculty meeting. The faculty may request additional information and
clarification before granting approval. Requests for EP withdrawal will be approved on a caseby-case basis and a student’s overall performance in the program will also be taken into
consideration. Completion of these procedures in no way guarantees that a student will be
permitted to withdraw from an EP practicum site.
If a student’s application for EP Withdrawal is approved prior to that university’s add/drop date,
no grade will be assigned for that semester. If it is after the university’s add/drop date, the grade
of “Incomplete” will be assigned for that semester. Students will need to be cognizant of the
university’s policy for removal of an incomplete and the possible financial aid ramifications of
decision to withdraw from an EP. Verbal agreements to complete an EP with sites are
considered to be just as binding as written agreements.
Timelines for EP Paperwork
1. After reviewing sites, complete the External Practicum (EP) Application Form (see form).
Your request for an EP will be reviewed by faculty.
2. If you r site has never had a UNC student there before, you will need to work with Dr. Johnson to
complete an Affiliation Agreement (see form).
3. Once an Affiliation Agreement has been completed, you will need to develop a Site Agreement
with your EP site which outlines expectation for you and for the site (see form).
4. Begin working at your EP.
5. At the end of each academic semester, you will need to give the practicum instructor copies of
your supervisors’ evaluations of your work (Competency Benchmarks in Professional
Psychology Readiness for Internship Level Rating Form) and your evaluation of the site
(UNC Student External Practicum Site Review Form) see forms. In addition a clinical
hours log should be completed and signed by your EP supervisors as well as the EP
instructor. Failure to turn in these evaluations by the end of the semester will result in an
incomplete grade.

Additional Information About Specific Practicum Sites
University of Northern Colorado Counseling Center
Advanced Practicum
Description
The University Counseling Center (CC) offers Advanced Psychology practicum placements for
doctoral students in regional training institutions. These placements are designed for graduate
students who are beyond the beginning stages of training and clinical experience, and who are
interested in attaining more advanced training within a university counseling center setting.
We seek students who can competently provide initial intake assessment (following in-depth
training and supervision) and psychotherapy with a college student client population.
Opportunities for outreach within the university are also available, and trainees are encouraged to
attend various trainings and seminars throughout the year.
There is flexibility in terms of the weekly time commitment for an Advanced Practicum student,
but we ask for a minimum of 15 hours per week and usually set a maximum of 20 hours per
week. We ask students to commit to a two-semester experience in order to grasp the full
experience of training in a university setting. Individual supervision with a pre-doctoral intern
(who is in-turn supervised by a licensed psychologist) will be provided.
We view our trainees as a vital part of our counseling center team and we are passionate about
the training process. The training of clinically competent, ethical, self-aware, and culturally
sensitive mental health professionals is one of the central missions of the CC. While members of
the training staff represent several theoretical orientations (i.e., humanistic/existential,
interpersonal, CBT, feminist, etc.), there is general consensus about the training model and
learning atmosphere that we believe is conducive for optimal acquisition and integration of skills
and competencies. We strive to create a challenging, intellectually stimulating, open environment
where new ideas can be explored and nurtured. The staff encourages trainees to assess their
professional strengths and deficits and assists them in developing appropriate learning
experiences within the parameters of the opportunities offered here. An assumption of the staff is
that optimal professional growth occurs when challenge is balanced with support. The model of
training that we have adopted at the UNC Counseling Center is best described as a
“developmental apprenticeship” approach. We aim to meet each trainee where he or she is at,
and challenge them appropriately with varying clinical experiences and degrees of autonomy.
The Counseling Center bases all its programs and services, including training, on a philosophy
that affirms the dignity of all people. The Center values pluralism and the opportunity for crosscultural interactions within the campus community in order to enhance the educational
environment for all students, staff, and faculty. We recognize that no individual is free from all
forms of bias and prejudice. We expect staff and trainees to be committed to the social values of
respect for diversity, inclusion and equality. Both trainers and trainees should demonstrate a
willingness to examine their own assumptions, behaviors, and values so that they may work
effectively with “cultural, individual, and role differences, including those based on age, gender,
gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability,
language, and socioeconomic status” (APA Ethics Code, 2002, Principle E).

CSU Health Network
Psychology Advanced Practicum
The CSU Health Network offers Advanced Psychology Practicum placements for doctoral
students from Colorado State’s Counseling Psychology Program and other regional
institutions. These placements are designed for graduate students who are beyond the beginning
stages of training and clinical experience, and who are interested in more advanced training
within an APA-accredited counseling center setting. The Advanced Practicum is open to 3rd and
4th year doctoral students in counseling or clinical psychology.
Description of the Site
Colorado State University Health Network, the CSUHN, is an integrated mental health
and medical service, which serves both undergraduate and graduate students. It is accredited by
the American Psychological Association (APA) for the doctoral internship in Counseling &
Clinical Psychology and by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care
(AAAHC). Colorado State University is a large land-grant university with a student population
of approximately 27,000 students from every state and 80 foreign countries.
The Counseling Services division of the CSUHN is comprised of general counseling services
and a number of specialty programs. General Services includes individual and couples therapy,
a vibrant group therapy program, and crisis intervention services. Specialty programs include the
DAY Program (substance abuse & other addictions), Behavioral Health (embedded within
medical services), and the iTEAM (an intensive out-patient program for students with more
extensive mental health service needs). Presenting issues range from the expected developmental
concerns of college-aged students to severe mental health diagnoses, including psychoses and
Axis II disorders. The most common presenting concerns are: stress & anxiety, mood disorders,
relationship issues, eating disorders, sexual concerns, substance abuse, and identity development.
CSUHN has a strong commitment to multi-culturalism and has strong working relationships
with the various Diversity Offices on campus.
The training of clinically-competent, ethical, self-aware, and culturally sensitive mental
health professionals is central to our mission. We provide training to as many as thirty graduate
students from diverse disciplines each year. Our Doctoral Psychology Internship has been
accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1973 and was one of the first
university counseling services to earn this recognition. Students in our Masters Internship in
Social Work and Counseling come from CSU and other regional institutions. Psychology
Advanced Practicum placements are open to third and fourth year Psychology graduate
students from CSU and nearby universities. The 2nd Year Psychology Practicum program is
offered in conjunction with CSU's doctoral program in Counseling Psychology and is only open
to their students. Graduate Student Assistantships are available to CSU psychology doctoral
students with advanced standing or students with special expertise in substance abuse or
outreach. Students from the University's Student Affairs in Higher Education program also
sometimes work with the DAY Program. We offer two post-degree Fellowships, a PostDoctoral Psychology Fellowship and a Post-Masters Fellowship in Social Work or
Counseling.
Training Philosophy
Six core principles reflect our training philosophy and serve as a foundation for the model of
training at the CSUHN. The following statements address our beliefs about the nature of training
and our expectations for the treatment of others.
Broad-based training is essential for developing professionals.
We value the contributions of our own and other professional disciplines to the training program,
recognizing that a diverse set of knowledge and skills are essential for effective practice.
20
Psychological theory and research are the foundation for competent practice.
The training staff believes that psychological theory and scientific research provide a foundation
for conceptualization and intervention. The practice of mental health professionals should be
grounded in theories relevant to their discipline and the supporting scientific literature.
An optimal learning environment is supportive and challenging.
We believe that learning is facilitated by an environment in which challenge is balanced with
support. We value an open environment in which ideas can be explored and it is safe to make
mistakes. We encourage trainees to honestly assess their professional strengths and limitations so
that we may collaboratively establish training goals.
A commitment to self-awareness and a willingness to monitor the impact of personal needs on
professional behavior are expected of all members of the staff.
Effectiveness as a mental health professional is not simply the result of skills acquisition, but
rather the successful synthesis of competence and personal maturity that results in self-regulated,
ethical behavior. Self-knowledge, self-care, and the ability to balance one's personal and
professional lives are essential to being an effective role model and instrument of change.
Each trainee and staff member has the right to be treated with respect.
Respect, honest communication, cooperation in meeting goals, and the support of one's
colleagues are central to a productive work environment.
Respect for human diversity is a fundamental component of all activities. The CSU Health
Network bases all its programs and services, including training, on a philosophy that affirms the
dignity of all people. We expect staff and trainees to be committed to the social values of respect
for diversity, inclusion and equity. Both trainers and trainees should demonstrate a willingness to
examine their own assumptions, behaviors, and values so that they may work effectively with
"cultural, individual, and role differences, including those based on age, gender, gender identity,
race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and
socioeconomic status" (APA Ethics Code, 2002, Principle E).
Model of Training
Our training program is based on the values inherent in the Practitioner-Scholar model. As
practitioners, we value the learning that comes through direct experience with others and
thoughtful self-reflection. As scholars, we recognize the importance of theory, research and
critical thinking. We believe that both practice and scholarship are essential in preparing new
mental health professionals to work effectively with diverse individuals and groups in a rapidlychanging world. We value a lifelong commitment to the integration of self-reflective practice and
scholarly examination.
We believe that becoming a competent psychologist, social worker or counselor is a
developmental process requiring graduated experiences and training. Consequently, the CSUHN
offers training experiences from beginning practica through postdoctoral fellowships. The
didactic instruction and supervised practice opportunities vary according to the level of training
and the readiness of the individual student. As trainees gain experience, expectations for more
advanced professional skills, greater self-awareness and autonomous functioning increase.
We place a high value on the integration of one's personal and professional identities. We
strive to tailor each student's experience to their individual needs within the structured activities
of our training program. Ongoing self-assessment of one's strengths and limitations is
encouraged. When coupled with the supervisory feedback of multiple staff members who are
committed to training new professionals, there is great opportunity for personal and professional
development.
Advanced Practicum Program Structure
21
Although there is flexibility in the weekly time commitment for an Advanced Practicum student,
we ask for a minimum of twelve hours per week both Fall and Spring semesters. Placements are
available in General Services (initial consults, individual and couples therapy, and crisis
intervention) or DAY (Drugs, Alcohol and You Program, a comprehensive substance use &
addictions treatment program for both mandated and voluntary students).
SPECIAL NOTE: Orientation for Fall semester begins August 1 and runs throughout the 3
week period until classes start. Advanced Practicum students must be available to attend
approximately 12-15 hours/week of scheduled training during that time period.
Advance Practicum Program Description
Service Delivery Experiences: Service delivery experiences differ somewhat depending upon
whether one is placed within General Services or DAY.
General Services Advanced Practicum Students: Students in the General Services track will
have opportunities to work with clients presenting a broad range of problems, including mood
disorders, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, and family concerns. Students
provide intake assessments, as well as individual and couples therapy.
DAY Services Advanced Practicum Students: DAY (Drugs, Alcohol, and You) Programs
provide assessment and treatment for students who are both mandated to treatment (by the
University, courts, or parents) and those voluntarily seeking treatment. Issues with substances
can range from AOD (Alcohol and other drugs) as a poor coping skill to addiction and cooccurring disorders. Interns focus on building a wide range of counseling skills (with special
attention paid to Motivational Interviewing) and provide counseling for many other mental
health concerns (depression, anxiety, PTSD, relational problems, etc.). Advanced Practicum
trainees typically begin counseling students referred for BASICS, a two session program for
those with relatively minor violations of University policy. They also function as clinicians and
case managers for the Back on TRAC program, a drug court modeled program designed for
higher risk students. Trainees typically build a caseload of voluntary students, as well. Trainees
have the opportunity to hone group facilitation and presentation skills through leading psychoeducational workshops, case management groups or a relapse prevention group.
Training Activities: CSUHN's commitment to training is reflected in seminars, supervision, and
other professional development activities available to trainees.
Supervision: Individual supervision is provided by senior staff psychologists, social workers and
counselors. Advanced practicum students receive 1-2 hours of individual supervision each week,
depending on the number of clinical hours for which they contract. Other members of the
training staff may also provide clinical supervision of aspects of the student's work. The
Supervisor will work with the student to identify her or his training needs and develop a contract
that best fulfills the individual's training goals, as well as those of the academic program and
CSUHN.
Training Seminars: All Advanced Practicum Students participate in the Advanced
Practicum/GSA Seminar. The option also exists to increase one's time in order to participate in
the Outreach Seminar and outreach service delivery. The seminars are described below:
• Advanced Practicum/GSA Professional Issues Seminar & Case Conference: This seminar
addresses issues of professional growth and development in order to facilitate entry into
the field of mental health. Presentations by staff members, community professionals, and
trainees cover a wide range of topics based on the group’s needs and special topics that
are of interest to them. It also provides a forum for peer supervision in a case conference
format.
• Outreach Seminar: The purpose of this seminar is to gain understanding of the role of
outreach and prevention services and to develop the skills necessary to deliver effective
programming. Special emphasis is placed on using nontraditional services to reach
22
populations that often do not seek mental health services, such as culturally diverse
students.
In-service Training: An in-service training with mental health and medical staff is scheduled
each month throughout the academic year. Retreats with all CSUHN staff are held in January and
August. National conferences and symposia are regularly sponsored at CSU in a wide variety of
areas, such as diversity, suicide prevention, and Asperger's Syndrome. All trainees are invited to
attend these activities.
Administrative Time: Depending upon the number of clinical hours provided, Advanced
Practicum Students are allotted 1-2.5 hours each week to write clinical notes, make phone calls,
respond to emails, and tend to other administrative tasks.

В В Psychology Training Program in Integrated Primary Care
Students may be placed at various clinics, including Commerce City, Brighton, Frederick, Longmont, Fort Collins
Salud Family Health Centers is a Community Health Center with nine clinics covering parts of Weld,
Boulder, Adams, Larimer, Morgan and Logan Counties, Colorado. Salud is dedicated to providing
primary health services to all the residents of its defined catchment area. The Salud system follows an
integrated model of care that aims to ensure high-quality, comprehensive, culturally competent, primary
medical, dental, and behavioral health services to traditionally underserved populations, thus reducing
barriers to care. Salud promotes prevention and early intervention in an effort to reduce unnecessary
medical concerns, utilization, and costs.
Psychology Training Program Description
The psychology training program at Salud includes opportunities for graduate-level practicum students,
pre-doctoral interns, and postdoctoral residents. We aim to develop culturally-competent primary care
psychologists who are prepared to work in integrated safety net settings as clinicians, educators, and
administrators. Our goal is to provide trainees with clinical, consultative, and educational experiences that
will inform their view of health and the healthcare system and impact their approach to patient care. As a
trainee you will have the opportunity to practice in one of the top integrated primary care settings while
learning about policy, organizational, and management issues that professional psychologists working in
medical settings need to understand.
Training Program Philosophy
The philosophy of the program is guided by the Local Clinical Scientist Model as described by Stricker
and Trierweiler (American Psychologist, 1995), which emphasizes utilizing observation skills, imbued
with a scientific approach and attitude, to address clinical problems, all with an appreciation of the
importance of context. The primary purpose of the training is to help trainees utilize and expand on their
existing competencies in a primary care setting. Trainees must exhibit strong critical thinking, case
conceptualization, and hypothesis testing abilities, awareness of personal biases, and cultural competency.
Services provided:
The Salud system provides a full spectrum of high-quality, comprehensive, culturally competent, primary
medical, behavioral, and dental care, including obstetrics and outpatient care. Salud promotes prevention
and early intervention, thus keeping underinsured or uninsured individuals out of hospitals and
emergency rooms. Behavioral Health Providers (including psychology trainees) are integrated into the
primary care teams and encounter primary care patients during their regular medical visits as well as
during scheduled therapy sessions. Behavioral Health Providers are responsible for screening, assessing,
identifying, and treating mental health concerns within the context of the healthcare team as well as
supporting the medical provider around chronic disease management and health behavior change.
Services include screening, consult, therapy, psychological testing, and shared medical appointments.
Duties of psychology trainee:
Health and Behavior Screenings: Trainees will administer universal health and behavior screenings,
provide appropriate brief intervention and/or referral, and report relevant findings to providers.
PCP Collaborations: Trainees will provide consultation-based services, including intervention,
assessment and/or mental health diagnosis as requested by Salud providers. Trainees will work closely
with more senior clinicians throughout the training period until they are deemed ready to function
independently.
27
Psychotherapy: Trainees will provide individual psychotherapy not to exceed 30% of total time. Trainees
will be responsible for all elements of care including scheduling, choice of intervention strategy,
treatment planning, and documentation of services.
Testing/Assessment: Trainees will have the opportunity to conduct psychological testing/assessments
based upon available referrals.
Case presentation: Trainees will present one formal case presentation to Psychology team during their
