I work as a site supervisor in an alternative program. I supervised 2-5 mental health clinicians as they worked with students were removed from the traditional school setting. My duties included completing school attendance, maintaining my client's files and update as needed, Completing quarterly reports, monthly summaries to the schools, completing audits, meeting with school officials to discuss transitioning client who have made progress, conducting group therapy with evidenced based curricula, and creating individualized treatment plans. The hardest part of the job is when there a conflict in the schedule between programming (working with the client) and administrative duites (meetings regarding the business of Horizon). The most enjoyable part of the job is working directly with the client and the parents. The workplace climate is collaborative and cooperative, however our site kinda seem on a island on our own because of the client population. I have learned a lot of leadership skills, especially in the role of a supervisor.
good benefits, good hours, supportive management for day treatment
