It focuses on the many issues involved in the total internship experience. The author's personal experience as an intern and as a coordinator for internship placements makes this book topical and important. Only the best information available from psychology, social work, and other disciplines was used to cover the following topics: goals and objectives, the field-placement process, agency concerns, the intern's role, supervision, values and ethical standards, evaluation, and future careers. An excellent resource for those seeking employment in the criminal justice field, as well as supervisors and field placement supervisors.

It is without question that internships are the "the wave of the future." They are an integral part of the definitive college education and a stepping-stone to a well-rounded career. In this text, the author, Dorothy Taylor, brings us her personal experience as an intern, internship coordinator, and Criminal Justice professor to draw connections between academic course work and the knowledge, skills, and emotional challenges that are found in the professional world.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

This book was written for students in the social sciences (criminal justice, criminology, psychology, sociology, and social work) who are beginning a criminal justice internship in a public or private agency. It will also be a useful reference for faculty and agency supervisors. The book focuses on many issues involved in the total internship experience, especially those related to students' personal and professional development during their internship education. A guide of this sort is important because many of my students have, over the past six years, considered their internship among the most influential experiences of their undergraduate careers. At the same time, they have reported that their regular course work provides only indirect, and generally insufficient, preparation for their initial real-world experiences. This book is designed to make the connection between academic course work and the knowledge, skills, and emotional challenges that are found in the professional world of work.
I have attempted to use the best information available from psychology, social work, and other disciplines that the interns will encounter in their various, placements. I conducted extensive literature reviews of the leading journals and textbooks in each discipline and consulted with several faculty and agency supervisors in various colleges and universities and internship placements.
Using my personal experience as an intern and my experience coordinating internship placements for hundreds of students, I designed this book to be used as an introductory text on internships that can also be a helpful resource tool for students in their work at the agencies. I hope this book will help readers have a more effective and rewarding work and learning experience.
