Deborah's Place

Counseling & Case Management Intern

August 2016 - May 2017 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

Great place to intern! I really loved Deborah's place, I tell people that all the time. The clients were great, and staff was supportive, collaborative, diverse, and encouraged self-care.

What I wish was different

It's difficult to engage some of the participants in counseling. For this reason, it is better as a case management placement for social work students. I ended up having 4 consistent clients for counseling, and many others who were unable to meet regularly.

Advice

It's very important to be well-versed in harm reduction and trauma-informed care. Also, all interns should be mindful of their own self-care.
