Have you been asked to tape one of your sessions by your supervisor? Boy i hate those videotaped sessions!
Internship at an Army MEDCEN=Special training for how to be an Army psychologist. It's not just the population, it's the whole "Army thing." Also, I see you are "pre-psychology" so you might want to start getting away from the use of the word "counseling." Most of us find that a little minimizing.
In my second year practicum they vidoetaped sessions. My supervisor thought they were stupid so we rarely looked at them unless a student asked to show it to the group.
