PACT is a family-oriented work community wherein our clients always came first and foremost. It was a fabulous experience wherein I was able to learn how to be a better a therapist and a better person. I grew in my abilities to listen and to empathize. I became even more organized due to so many group notes, progress notes and case notes, as well as assessments.
I worked with one of the best management teams and ended up being able to better understand administration, supervision and all the ends and outs of running a non-profit organization.
I do not feel that there was a hard part to my job. I loved my job - every aspect of it but the best part of my job was working with the court-ordered offenders. These were men who had made mistakes and while there were some who did not want to stop being violent or change, there were many who did and those were the men who gave me the reason to continue to go to work everyday and help these men, women and children stop the cycle of violence.
