SOC-OFE Masters Students - Field Experience Manual: Off-Site Counseling

Off-Site Counseling

Students can be approved to work off-site—at sites that are directly and contractually affiliated with the approved site (e.g., prisons, schools, satellite offices)—as long as the Walden-approved site supervisor or site-approved designee is on site at all times while the student is seeing clients, and the counseling services are provided in a private, confidential setting.

Important notes:

  • Students cannot conduct counseling sessions in public settings (e.g., libraries, restaurants).
  • Walden University students are prohibited from transporting clients.
