Fieldwork provides the opportunity for students to utilize the skills which they have learned, to build their clinical experience with the supervision provided by an on-site supervisor, and to expand their understanding of cases with consultation provided in the fieldwork seminar. Counseling psychology students from Dominican University of California are known within the community for the depth and breadth of their academic and professional training.
"Through Fieldwork, students experience directly what it is like to help people. That immediate experience is followed by the application of insight and understanding so that interaction is meaningful, theory stays honest, and co-occurring growth is acknowledged".
