Pros: working with children
Cons: only given a certain time frame for counseling
A typical workday involves interacting with children at their school's or at their home. I learned how to understand a person that is involved in an uncontrollable situation. I never met any of my co-workers. We worked independently when assessing each client. The hardest part of the job was seeing these emotionally and socially disturbed children cry over the burden of handling such difficult situations. The most enjoyable part of the job is being more than a mental health specialist for these kids. To may I was a friend to others I was family. I touched me deeply to know that I was never judged by my position but given the opportunity to help someone that was willing to be helped!
