Pros: witnessing change, being a mentor
Cons: lack of resource
The cliental I work with often come in with fear, confusion, anger and despair. but most of all lack of trust for outsiders.
My day-to-day interaction was spend as the lead front line worker for children / youth with significant behavioral challenges I learned quickly no two situation are alike and no two individuals respond in the same way.
Most of the student had no intention of following the rules and or expectations of the teaches / schools. It was my job respond to the crisis, and to help find solutions for all involved .
In a school with 300 and 400 students and lack of resource and teacher training etc. it is difficult at times to keep a balance and find ways of providing support and growth opportunities .
Establishing a warm, nurturing but firm relationship, with my students and families was often a major challenge but was also the most rewording part of my job.
Being able to see the changes take place with some of the most difficult students that would otherwise have being transferred were some of my greatest success, and made going to work enjoyable
