Excellent Career Experience
In-Home Outreach Counselor (IHOC) (Former Employee) – Culver City, CA – May 23, 2017
A typical day at this agency involved visiting client families at their homes and conducting a needs assessment, investigate child abuse allegations, work with the family and teach effective communication skills, and provide family counseling. I learned how to work with the family as a system, and learning the different roles that people play within such a system. The management of the organization was effective in connecting the agency to any resources that were needed. The workplace culture of the agency was relaxed and informal. The hardest part of the job was having to travel to areas that did not feel safe. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with families and getting to know and understand their dynamics.
Getting to know and working with families.
