Client encounters must be completed by the last day of the last term. Students are required to complete a minimum of 100 client encounters.
*The student bears the cost of airfare, hotel, and travel to Austin.

Client Observations: Students to observe Practitioners conduct an interview, discuss client records, and view client sessions as an observer of 25 clients and prepare reports based on their observation. Practitioner students may also buddy up with Counselor students and observe and peer review their findings, while they are proctored by the teachers. This is done in real time in person, and/or livestreamed online. If unable to attend, recordings are available. **

Internship in Austin: The second format requires active participation where students observe clients in person during an interview, may now conduct pariksas, and, interviews under the direct observation of their teachers.
