Flexible schedule with many training opportunities and personal growth.
Clinician I Family Therapeutic Services (Current Employee) – Campbell, CA – January 20, 2015
The schedule is flexible as clinicians are able to manage their own schedules, in order to meet the individual needs of the youth and families. A day may consist of meeting with youth and families at my office, their home or in the community. There are also pscho social assessments, safety plans and treatment plans required for each youth/family.
I have learned a lot about how to manage my time and stress level. Every day and every youth/family is different. I have learned to really listen to a youth's strengths, challenges, visions and dreams and to collaborate with a team of family/service providers to facilitate positive, sustainable changes in their lives
My direct managers have been supportive and provided a wonderful learning experience with individual and group supervisions.
My co worker are top notch clinicians/psychiatrists and are easy to work with and consult with when needed.
The hardest part of the job is hearing some of the stories of the youth and family's struggles and what has brought them to EMQ. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, but also inspirational due to the resilience and strengths these families bring.
I've had such a great connection with these youth and families over the years, even when their stories are heartbreaking, because in this work I have also learned a lot about myself and the experience has resulted in a lot of personal growth.
Nice and flexible work environment with professional, knowledable people
Lots of paper work and clients who have endured adversity, mental health problems, abuse and neglect.
