Student Responsibilities & Expectations
Student responsibilities include: accruing weekly hours toward your placement (direct and indirect per the requirements of your school), taking conversations on the Platform, reading newsletters sent by Practicum Specialist, attending Crisis Text Line webinars, attending Monthly Skills Enhancer training hosted on a rotating schedule by each Practicum Specialist, attend weekly group supervision, respond to emails from Practicum Specialist in a timely fashion, attend office hours with Practicum Specialist as needed, incorporate feedback from Practicum Specialist via conversation transcripts.
This placement offers immense flexibility for student schedules, and also requires a high level of self-motivation and accountability because of the relative difference in structure compared to other in-person sites. Students should be aware that the content of crisis conversations can be intense at times, and yet they will have access to support in the moment on the Platform and also from Student Learning Program staff.
