What IS field instruction?
  • Field instruction is meant to help less
    experienced clinicians deal appropriately
    with clients
  • The seasoned professional is there to serve as
    a guide
  • The field instructor should offer the student a
    supportive and educational atmosphere without
    taking over the work the student is doing
  • Students need to see the field instructor as a
    useful resource who will help protect the student
    and help in treating clients effectively and
    ethically
  • Field Instruction provides opportunities to
    integrate what is learned in class.

  • application of classroom learning
  • part of an educational and assessment process
  • Treat it professionally
  • Give yourself enough time
  • Be mindful of self presentation
  • Be open to various possibilities!
  • Field is NOT
  • Something to cram into your schedule without
    thought, commitment, or planning
  • An extension of your job
  • A place to do busy work
  • A chance to repeat an opportunity youve already
    had
  • A setting where you can do whatever you want
  • A place to catch up on studying
  • An option you can pursue between midnight and 5am
    or Sundays only
  • A place you just walk away from when things get
    difficult
