ADAVIC does not currently offer any face-to-face counselling services for the community, and therefore we do not have suitable positions if this is required from a placement experience.
Our typical placement opportunities are the same as those offered for volunteer opportunities (see above), in particular:
Placement requirements differ across universities and tertiary institutes and across courses, including:
- Support Group Facilitator Volunteer
- Phone, Email, and Admin Support Volunteer
- the duration of the placement (number of hours required for completion)
- the type of placement experience needed (eg,
"counselling" vs. "support" opportunities; direct client contact (face-to-face) vs. phone contact; working independently with clients vs. observation only, etc)
- the type of field supervision required during the placement.
