Description

During the 2014-2015 year, Psychology Field Placement students spent 6,300 hours parterning with sites in the Harrisonburg community and surrounding counties. In addition to spending a staggering amount of time in the community, students have weekly class sessions for this capstone experience. Critical to the success of these students' experiences, however, is the support of their community-based site supervisors. Over 30 different supervisors mentored students during the course of the academic year, volunteering their time to help students both broaden and deepen their understanding of issues related to their work.
