A typical day for me was helping other clinicians so that they could focus on other tasks. I was a temporary employee (while waiting for NJ Certification) and performed any duties assigned to me, ie, facilitating groups, completing assessments, progress notes.
Management was kind and friendly, but inexperienced. I was happy to assist them with questions.
Hardest part of the job was winning over the clients - As a caucasian female working in Harlem, I needed to gain their trust, and I did.
Co-workers appeared friendly and grateful for my assistance.
