Pros: ability to work independently.
Cons: having to meet productivity per pay period
The daily routine meant meeting with clients at med review, contacts via the telephone, and the occasional Child Family Team meeting. I learnt aspects of mental health that encouraged research, and collaboration with peers, and supervisor. My co-workers were supportive, and allowed for enjoyable environment by breaking up the work day with engaging conversations, and laughter. The most difficult part of the job was meeting the requirements of productivity while maintaining integrity, and ethical standards. Management was very stringent on getting the productivity requirements met, and there was no room for error. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting with the clients, and trying to meet the specific needs that best suited each. It was encouraging when families were thankful for the help provided, and an understanding that the purpose was to improve the quality of life for the client.
