Intern, El Monte, CA - January 6, 2015
BRIDGES is just a special place to be. You can tell that everyone there loves what they do and they do it well. There is no typical day here. Everyday is different and has it's unique quirks. I learned a lot about the residents I worked with such as intervening and managing a crisis situation, coaching residents through the process of making doctor's appointments and/or cooking a meal, and how to build rapport. I love this place. I've never had a "bad day" here because all the staff members have my back and I have theirs. My preceptor really let me be me and honed in on the things I'm really good at such as facilitating groups and writing progress notes while teaching me how to manage crisis situations and respond when there is a crisis.
