I think the most important training as a dcw are cpr, amap, scip and a drivers license.

I'm looking for work in the direct care field. I have 9 years experience working with youngsters with mental illness. I supervised and escorted the client to and from medical appointments. I prepared meals and assisted the youngsters in hygiene. I escorted clients on scheduled activites in the community. I have a deep passion to work with troubled teens alway willing to lend a helping hand to the team and the youngsters. I have experience in working in crisis stituations with the youngsters and have a way of de-escalating an agitated client with counseling. At the end of my shift I would document behaviors, moods, and what the youngster was involved in for that day. So I do have typing skills. Thank you very much for your time.
