Senior Behavioural Therapist in Calgary, AB

Good if you want to be forced into burnout
Manipulated into working ridiculous overtime and told to suck it up when you get injured. Toxic management and hire irresponsible 18 year old staff who don't know the first thing about professionalism in the workplace.

There is hope after STA
I entered into this job with so much excitement to learn, however, I did not forsee a horrible management structure, unsafe environment/ practices and little to no care for staff or client well being. I would say STA borders on abusive in some of its behavioral plans they expect you to execute, and shows little to no care for its front line workers. Expect to be overworked and underappreciated in your position as a "behavioral therapist" This job left me with so much burn out and self doubt, now entering into a new work environment it has fully come to light what a toxic environment that this place truly is. I know of numerous staff who have long lasting anxiety, depression PTSD as well as physical injuries received from the job including but not limited to concussions, brain bleed, broken nose, perforated cornea, and to many more things to list. If you enter into this job know that the only good thing about it is getting to experience a diverse set of kids who are truly amazing individuals.

Stressful and Tough Work Culture
Working here has both positives and negatives. You have to be prepared to use physical restraints and self-protection techniques. It can be tricky to know which approaches and techniques to use as many staff have different opinions and advice.

Kids were great but management sucked
The kiddos were terrific but the management was horrible. Often left with no support and were told conflicting ways to handle situations with children; which left you being blamed. Consultants from psychology, occupational therapy and speech were good and bad depending on with team member you were paired with on the child's case load.

Clicky staff, poor management, unprofessional, unethical, and no team support
I worked here for almost 5 months. I was so excited to start. Not even three weeks in, I started to hate it. The staff was very unwelcoming and clicky. If you are new, you will not be welcomed into the staffs "groups". Management does not care a lot about you (there were some, but unfortunately mine was rude when I brought up concerns and did not help me). I was thrown into the group home with little to no training, even though I was not told the severity of that position, nor was it the one I got hired on to do. I was constantly attacked and abused, and when reaching out to the team, they did not help one bit. The employees above the therapist team speak poorly about other staff, as well as the families they work for. I was very shocked when one of the behavior therapists spoke negatively about a child and their family. During some shifts, I would not be comfortable with the practices STA follows. I felt like it was unethical. I would not waste your time working here. You will be emotionally and physically drained, with little to no support. And if you bring up a concern, be prepared to be spoken bad about by other employees. The only benefit is the children and families. They were so welcoming and kind. Leaving the kids and families was the hardest part about leaving my position, but I would not go back even if they offered me more money. You do not get paid enough for what you have to deal with on a daily basis.
