Departmental Dismissal Policies Master's Degree Retention and Dismissal Policy Department of Counseling faculty are confident that each student admitted has the potential to be successful in graduate study. Success in course work, clinical practice, case presentations, comprehensive exams, oral exam, and enactment of the core dispositions are examples of student's progress toward completing a degree in the Department of Counseling.
However, admission into the counseling program does not guarantee success. Faculty expect students to fully engage in all aspects of the learning environment, showing openness to new experiences and risk taking necessary to develop as a person and professional counselor.
Engagement in all aspects of the educational experiences developed by faculty in the Department will increase the probability of successful completion of the program. The Department of Counseling faculty members have a professional responsibility to serve as gatekeepers for the counseling profession.
Counseling is a discipline that requires active and complex gatekeeping to protect the public welfare of our communities. In particular, gatekeeping refers to the responsibility of all counselors, including counselor educators and student counselors, to intervene with counselor trainees, supervisees, professional colleagues, and supervisors who engage in behavior that could threaten the welfare of those receiving counseling services.
When impediments are identified the student will be informed either verbally or in writing. Impediments may include, but are not limited to, those offered by Frame and Stevens-Smith Students will be given specific feedback on the nature of their impediment s as well as steps to remove this barrier s to progress when appropriate.
In many instances a Professional Progression Plan PPP will be crafted to provide clear and specific ways the student can improve and continue to progress in the program.
However, in more extreme cases e. The PPP represents a formal agreement between the Department and student who has been identified as having impediments to their progress as a counselor in training.
Upon receipt of the PPP the student will review the plan and provide their signature indicating an understanding of the requirements expected and as agreement to meet the requirements described within.
A student who chooses not to sign the PPP should understand this will cause immediate dismissal from the program and familiarize themselves with the appeals process.2 Animal-assisted interventions in historical perspective - James A.
