OBJECTIVES AND/OR GOALS

In addition to the didactic exposure, the student will have the opportunity to observe and then perform interviews with families, children and adolescents. These interviews may then be followed up with subsequent visits by the student in order to get some mini-exposure to continued evaluation. Along with learning evaluations and interview techniques, the student will have the opportunity to observe adolescent group therapy process at Brentwood Hospital, as well as be exposed to children and adolescents in therapy at the LSUHSC Outpatient Clinic. The student will be at these two locations during the month and will be under direct faculty supervision during that time.
