THE SUCCESSFUL INTERNSHIP: PERSONAL, PROFESSIONAL, AND CIVIC DEVELOPMENT, 3e, offers you more than just a resource for how to find a position or how to interview; it addresses the concerns, emotions, needs, and unique personal challenges that are the essence of an internship or field experience and focuses on the internship as a vehicle for your development as a civic professional. The authors describe in detail the path of change you'll find yourself embarking on and the challenges you'll face along the way. The book's five-stage model of the internship process--anticipation, disillusionment, confrontation, competence, and culmination--places the material in a meaningful framework that lends structure to your understanding of the work you'll be doing.

Review:

"This text is chock-full of pertinent information for students embarking on field placements. It is exceptionally well written and provides students with a wealth of knowledge to guide them during their internships."

"The authors have combined their own lengthy and sophisticated experience as internship supervisors and instructors in human services with some of the best theory and practice in the field of experiential education."

"The book is really an essential reference in the field. It is one of the most accessible and authoritative works available."

"This third edition of The Successful Internship masterfully links the apprenticeship traditions of internships and the civic dimensions of experiential learning, such as service-learning, in a way that has been much needed in higher education. Each chapter includes the relevant element of the civic dimension of the internship experience, such as civic professionalism, issues in civic development, and the civic context of the internship placement's environment."
