dc.description.abstract The following is a report providing a reflection of my practicum experience at Prince Albert Parkland Mental Health Out-Patient Services. The purpose of the practicum was to gain practical social work knowledge and experience in clinical counselling with individuals, in group settings and through application of Internet Cognitive Behavior Therapy (ICBT). To achieve these goals, I worked with clients with diverse issues, such as: anxiety, depression, panic disorder, change of life, post-partum depression, sexual abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder and grief and loss. I enhanced my knowledge in various therapeutic approaches and utilised them to assist clients during counselling sessions. These approaches included a strengths-based perspective, cognitive behavior therapy, and solution focused therapy, within a client centered philosophy of practice. As part of my goals, I also worked with ICBT clients, providing support and encouragement throughout two eight-week sessions and co-facilitated dialectical behavior group therapy sessions with numerous participants. As a result, my counselling skills have improved and I gained insight into the role of mental health counsellor. I conclude with discussing challenges, values and ethical considerations that arose during my practicum placement. en_US
