I'm going to answer your question from my thread and this one in here, since they are the same. Yes, most schools teach theories, which they call Frames of Reference, such as the biomechanical Model, Cognitive Behavioral, Sensory Integration, etc. There are a plethora of more but you will learn those in school. You will at least be exposed to most of the theories but your school may not go in great detail about each one.
That said, they are all related to practice, however, because you won't be applying those theories into practice, once you start Fieldwork II, it's a different ballgame.
Yes, MANY of my classmates from my school and other schools have shared the same sentiment about burnout. Fieldwork II is much more stressful and worse than the time in class. It is the time when you get to showcase what you have learned in school.
However, the key issue a lot of these schools are not teaching students, my school included, proper clinical reasoning skills. They just give you material and hope you get it.
the burnout also comes from Fieldwork II being a dreadful 6 months. It is a very long six months in which you will be under the supervision of a Clinical Instructor, most of whom have forgotten they were students at one point and do not know how to successfully guide a student into becoming an entry level therapist. The schools say "Well, they are doing the students a favor by taking them on" I get that, but my gripe is that they have simply forgotten they were once students and expect students to have the same knowledge and skill base as them.
You will also have to do in inservice aka project for your Fieldwork II site. Most sites let you pick what you want, but others don't.
That said, it is stressful because your life is not your own for 6 months. You are really at the mercy of the CI.
Also, you may not be able to work which means you will be broke. If I had to do this again, I wouldn't.
