A variety of additional electives are available including two courses on trauma, and two related to addictions. The two addictions courses fulfill the 85 continuing education requirements required by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) for those pursuing the CASAC (Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor) credential. The full extent of the additional requirements for this credential may be found on the OASAS website.
Note, St. Bonaventure University is a certified education and training provider for OASAS.
Students are expected to complete an initial practicum field experience (40 hours of direct counseling) the first year, which is non-track specific. In the second year, they are required to complete two track specific internships, each involving 300 clock hours. Site supervisors of the internships must be certified rehabilitation counselors. The placement process is a collaborative effort among students and faculty members.
