Great, supportive team and environment
Outpatient Clinic Social Work Intern (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 5, 2019
GTSS is a school with one side serving kids on the autism spectrum and one side serving kids with all other IEP needs, and it has an on-site mental health clinic for the students. I interned there as a social work graduate student and had a small case load of students for one-on-one therapy as well as one therapy group.
The other therapists there went above and beyond to support me, teach me, and make me feel comfortable. They were always willing to answer questions and give advice or feedback. My supervisor was generous and supportive and gave great supervision and guidance, and the director was approachable and included everyone, asking for feedback and input in our meetings.
The environment was fun and inclusive. There is always stress inherent to social work/therapy but even on the hardest, longest days with incidents and problem behaviors, we still managed to have a positive environment.
Favorite place I've ever worked.
Great kids even on bad days, Nice clean environment, Supportive and friendly staff, Opportunity and leeway to try new things
