Abstract

Rationale are provided for increasing opportunities for counseling psychology students to receive training in child counseling. Two models are proposed: (a) an exposure model, which would expand existing curricula to enhance students 'introduction to child counseling; and (b) a subspecialty model, which would provide more intense training through specialized course work and supervised practica with child clients. Both the exposure and the subspecialty models could have applications with other special populations.
