Supervisor (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – August 13, 2015
Every single morning I would start off with a treatment team meeting. This is where the therapists and other staff come together and discuss any issues with clients. The meeting will last for about an hour and I would head to group therapy. I would facilitate topics such as self-esteem, domestic violence, and daily living skills just to name a few. On Friday mornings I would teach parenting to the clients. I had a caseload of about 7-8 clients for individual therapy sessions. Here we would discuss imperative coping skills to manage their triggers for substance use. On top of therapy, I would complete my clients biopsychosocials, treatment plans, treatment plan reviews, extended stay requests, and any documents needed for court.
Agape was a great facility to gain useful experience working with populations such as substance abuse, domestic violence victims, trafficking victims, and mental health clients. I learned how to effectively work with challenging populations. I also learned how to do complete and proper paperwork (i.e. progress notes).
Although this was sometimes a challenging population to work with, it was also profoundly rewarding.

Caregiver (Current Employee) – Bakersfield ca – April 6, 2014
Everyday was a learning and growing experience at Bethesda Lutheran Communities. This job offered training classes each month to help us learn more about people with disabilities and how to deal with the behavioral behaviors that they may have. Management was good and the QRMP was always involved and there when we needed them.I liked my co workers I worked with they were a great team. The only hard part of the job was when the client would have a behavior such as hurting another client, but I would deal with it patiently by trying to calm him/her down and quickly calling my supervisor and QRMP to inform them of the situation. Everything else about the job was great and fun like working with the clients and getting involved in the many activities that were provided for them.
