Dedicated compassionate group serving people with disabilitities
INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) – Walnut Creek, Ca – April 27, 2012
This was perhaps the most enjoyable job I have had in social service field. I am an inner directed person and the mananagement staff allowed me the freedom to respond to the needs of the clients in a way that was personal and direct. Guidelines and expectations were clear but the exercise of these responsibilities offered me the freedom,self-determination, and trust to best actualize my skills and abilities.
The most challenging part of the job was often dealing with the dysfunctional social and family systems that formed some obstacles for the client's growth. The most rewarding part of the job was observing client's grow, become more responsible, and have more independence and self-esteem.
