Clinical Capstone Examination

All Counseling students are required to pass a clinical competency examination. The Clinical Capstone Exam focuses on student demonstration of knowledge and skills that reflect the competencies of the rehabilitation and mental health counselor. Students will be assessed on their knowledge and skills accumulated through coursework and clinical experiences.

The course requires students to synthesize and apply advanced concepts into clinical practice through a case study approach. Students are expected to analyze and synthesize case materials for case conceptualization and then develop appropriate and realistic intervention plans. Students are expected to apply appropriate counseling techniques included in their intervention plan via role-play simulations. Successful completion is needed for the student to demonstrate mastery of graduate study.
