HSER 294 : Seminar & Fieldwork I
The HSER 294 Seminar and Fieldwork I course is the first of two required courses, which offers the intern enrolled in the Certificate of Competence in Substance Use Disorder Counseling Program a graduated internship experience in which a learner may complete 200 hours of onsite fieldwork in an approved substance use disorders treatment facility. In the weekly seminar, the learner examines the 12 Core Functions applied by the substance use disorders counselor and ethical and legal mandates under which they must practice. Individual strengths and challenges are identified in relationship to the onsite experiences and the learner begins to develop a professional identity as a substance use disorders counselor by applying the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that they have learned in the previous program courses. Attention also is given to how to attend to one's self-care while working within a stressful and demanding field.
