Intern, Hempstead, NY - May 12, 2016
The PROS program was an amazing internship experience because of how extensive it was in terms of the experience itself. I had the opportunity to work with several clients, create and facilitate groups, document notes, individual recovery plans, relapse prevention plans, monthly notes, clinical formulations, hospital and high risk logs. I also spoke with psychiatrists, medical doctors, nurses, care coordinators and social workers. The field work I participated in was truly a necessary experience in order for me to go out into the world and become a clinical mental health counselor. I know that in the dept. I worked in the supervision was stellar. Both my supervisor and my team leader were excellent at supervising and I learned a great deal from them. I also learned from my clients. I am unsure as to where the internship for the PROS program can improve. The program itself was filled with crucial experience.
