Afternoon times is spent with 30 minutes of one on one face-time with the client in staff office. Student has certain liberties during this time period with counselor. They can either talk with counselor about other things going on in their day then just school, or they can do Art work, games with learning, or work with counselor on their assestments. and goals for the day and week. Those clients that have to take medication by monitoring is done at the face to face time with counselor, other qualified staff are in the office area as well. After face-time is completed counselor then does the data entry work needed to complete daily assignment, and assestment for student. Once that is completed, counselor then prepares to see students go home for the day, or counselor may attend a youth activity, or after school event with them. Most hardest aspect of the job was making sure all of the clients needs, and goals were met on a daily, or weekly basis. Most enjoyable would be the strides, and achievements that these youth make on a daily , weekly, monthly, and even yearly basis. Always trying to better themselves.
