AbstractThis report describes a thirteen week full-time counselling internship completed from April to August, 1988, at the St. John's Adolescent Health Counselling Centre, St. John's, Newfoundland. Included is a statement of the internship objectives and rationale, a description of the internship activities, evaluation procedures utilized during the internship and a required research study. This study was set up to measure the efficacy of a multi-component behavioral group program, 'Freedom From Smoking in 20 Days', with adolescents. T-tests were employed to assess the changes in smoking behavior for 12 adolescent program participants (pre/post and three month follow-up) as compared to a control group of twelve adolescents. It was found that the program participants significantly reduced their smoking rate at program completion and three month follow-up, as compared to non participants.
