The work life balance is deplorable and should be the reason the company goes under all on its own. There is an extremely high turnover rate. 6 people left within 3 weeks, once. You can be out in the field for 8+ hours and will still be expected to completed all paperwork within 24hrs. YV supervisors do not care about your families at home, if you eat, or even sleep for that matter. They only care about you being well enough to complete the work. Even if you have scheduled time off, you are expected to produce the same 40 plus hours worth of work.
YOU ARE NOT DOING THERAPY!!! You will be under the impression that you are going to be providing awesome therapeutic services to very in need families... LIES!!! Those poor families are being forced to receive therapy, no matter how much they refute. YV supervisors will try to manipulate why those families need therapy and exploit their problems because the service was court mandated.
The work is nonstop, supervisors are very critical- which is ironic because the MST model is strengths based. You will NEVER get to a point of just case notes... there are assessments, treatment plans and evaluations due EVERY week, on top of mandatory meetings that take away from clinical time.
Cultural diversity is a HUGE problem... its the giant elephant in the room. You are mainly working with poor and disenfranchised POC and the staff is 90% non-POC middle and upper class, and there are no trainings on culture, interaction or basic manners towards the clients.
Do yourself a favor and DO NOT apply!!! You're WELCOME!!!
