Begin writing out your plan of the things that you need to take care of in the next few weeks as you close out your foundation year placement.
Begin the discussion with your Field Instructor about the agency’s protocol regarding terminating with clients. Describe the typical process and time frame. How will you approach terminating with your clients? When has it been advised to inform them that you are leaving? How do you feel about saying goodbye and what future goals do you have for them?
What feelings do you have? What will be most difficult in ending your field placement? What can you do to ensure that you end the way you want to? What do you most appreciate from your Field Instructor, other staff members, and agency? Anything you want to share with your Field Instructor and other staff members before you depart? Who else do you want to make sure that you say good-bye to? Are you going to discuss keeping in touch and being a possible reference in the future?
You are almost done with your foundation year internship, what are some things that you have learned? What do you wish would have been different and/or goals for your advanced year placement? What plans do you have to celebrate your accomplishment?
