Residential Milieu Therapist (Current Employee) – Exeter CADD Residential – January 9, 2013
Working at Bradley is great. We make a difference in the lives of kids and the families who cannot function without our cutting edge children's psychiatric hospital and it's residential program. I enjoy my co workers, we have developed an awesome team who works so well together. The most difficult part of working at Bradley is watching kids get sick and have to be hospitalized repeatedly. Mental health is a lifelong issue and must always be managed.
Lead Milieu Therapist (Former Employee) – East Providence, RI – September 4, 2012
A typical day involves seeing anywhere from 2-4 children in their homes. I have put quite a few miles on my car. Sessions were often 2 hours with the management sitting in on sessions weekly. Management was great, co-workers were awesome. The most enjoyable part of the job was the success of the children. The job required flexibility, with the children and the families, as well as the daily schedule. The hardest part was when the programs came to an end. The programs run typically for 3 years, so you really get to know the child.
