Resident Specialist (Former Employee), Covington, KYFebruary 21, 2015
Over all a great job. not always good employees to work with.

The hardest part of the job was that the residents could change moods on a dime. but you get used to each persons traits.

Also I hated that some of the boys were at the home because they had no where else to go.

I did get attached o a few though.

Overall review of Company
Residential Treatment Specialist (Former Employee), Covington, KYAugust 18, 2013
Pros: making a difference in the lives of youth, great team efforts
Cons: balance of home life/work time (2nd shift position).
A typical day consists of structured treatment for troubled youth involving school, organized activities/therapy groups/session, and meetings to discuss transitional living plans(once a week). There is also included paperwork that is to be completed at the end of each shift involving Microsoft Word and Excel)i.e, progress notes on each resident,communication log update, calculated percentages based on program TIPS. I have learned that each child is different in personality and need. It is important to be creative in your approach to better a youth's life, as well as understand their background to be as effective as possible.. Your example/attitude plays a major impact on the job. Utilizing co-workers strengths (a team effort), combined with yours in helping a youth is highly recommended.Some youth will be successful and some won't unfortunately, this is sometimes the nature of the job.There will be days where the planned structure may lack due to the youth's behaviors, so it is important to have great organizational and communication skills which I feel have been developed while in this line of work. Making a difference in the lives of the youth, and learning better organizational,and communication skills has been the most enjoyable part of my experience so far to date.

Family Educator Specialist (Current Employee), Covington, KYOctober 11, 2012
Pros: free dinner.
Cons: short too no breaks and health care isnt any good.
Typical day at work would be correcting, teaching and mentoring adolscents for 13yrs to 17 yrs of age. I have learned alot while working in this field for 11yrs. i have learned patientce especially becuse you have to be to deal with the youth of today. The management i would say was always in a disaray and confused. They only cared about making money not the clients we served.
