Course Code: CYC 258
Academic Year: 2021-2022
Internship will provide opportunities for CYC students to work from a developmental and ecological perspective, to assess and respond to the strength and diverse social, emotional and behavioral needs of children, youth and families, and to maintain an anti-oppression and anti-racism perspective in their work. Students will plan, implement and evaluate evidence-based and strength-based interventions in the areas of therapeutic milieu and programming, teamwork and advocacy. This occurs through a work-integrated learning model, wherein students either engage in practical projects linking authentic experiences, in-person or remote work experiences. The development of the advanced skills assessed in this course will support students to fully and successfully engage in their internship experience as active, self-aware, and competent Child and Youth Care Practitioners.
