Abstract

A national survey was conducted to ascertain whether practicum and internship requirements differed between programs accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and non-CACREP accredited programs. A questionnaire was designed and sent to counselor education programs. Questionnaires were returned by 309 programs representing 24 accredited programs and 285 non-accredited programs. The results show that accredited and non-accredited programs differed significantly with regard to total clock hours required in practicum, hours of individual supervision required weekly in practicum and internship, and hours of individual supervision with the on-site supervisor. The two groups did not differ significantly with regard to total clock hours required in internship and hours of group supervision per week for students enrolled in practicum and internship.
