Excellent Management and Casual Fridays
Practicum/Internship (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 26, 2014
This was an unpaid Practicum/Internship position. What I liked about Safer would start with the staff. As a Clinical Mental Health Professional, I was well!!. Supervisors went far and beyond their roles when it came to teaching us the craft of working with clients with mental-health/substance abuse issues. There was no such thing as a typical day at this site. I worked with IDOC inmates...never a dull moment! I learned from the clients as much as they learned from me and other co-workers. The paperwork was one of the hardest, but most rewarding areas I had to learn. Counselors deal with a lot of necessary paperwork! Thanks to my mentors at Safer, I am well qualified to do Intakes/Treatment plans etc. One of the most important lessons I learned at Safer...it takes a team to work with clients. I continue to understand how counseling is an Art!!!
