Exciting place to work
Psychiatric Technician I (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTOctober 23, 2012
Typical Day: meet with primary patients to talk about school, what they did the day before, meet with staff to get daily report, do observational checks on patients, co-lead in-patient psychotherapy groups

I learned how to effectively work with in-patient adolescents, how to make sure I was always on my toes and to be a true team player

Management was top-notch, from the Unit Chief to the Head Nurse

Co-workers always had my back and we all listened to and were supportive of each other

The hardest part of the job was watching a patient be out of control or in total despair and knowing there was nothing I could do to fix it

The most enjoyable part of the job was getting phone calls on the unit from former patients who were clean and sober and in school, thanking me for the help I gave them
Pros
staff, ability to grow
Cons
consolidation of units and ultimate loss of position
