Pros: helping children that wanted to be helped, pretty good pay, set schedule
Cons: not open door policy when it came to your management staff, not having the staff safety as a point of interest, a lot of hear say on the unit
My typical day was assessing the youth in a mental, emotional & behavioral setting. I learned that this job is not meant for everybody & you really have to have a hear to work with disturbed children. My co-workers were okay as long as you didn't make them mad. The hardest part of this job is keeping your cool when a child attacks you & your not getting any assistance from your unit co-workers.
