Pros: i enjoy working with families
Cons: lack of training and appropriate resources needed to assist staff
A typical day at work can begin with resolving crisis or reaching out to both birth and foster parents. I have learned about adoption and its process. I have also learned to testify in court on my case. Some co-workers can be helpful when they want to be, however, you learn on your own as you. The hardest part of my job is not having proper and or adequate training.
The most enjoyable part of my job is being available for my families when they are in crisis. It is knowing and acknowledging when they are going through a hard time and being able to provide them with appropriate support.
