  1.  

    Great experience, just wished was more organized

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at CcTC (Children's Crisis Treatment Center) as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Really caring staff helped make up for the rough days here.

    Cons

    Good experience for someone who doesn't have much experience in mental health field since it opens your eyes up to new avenues and possibilities of helping at-risk children.

    I have been working at CcTC (Children's Crisis Treatment Center) part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent pay ($14/hr) I don't know if that has changed now
    A lot of open cases

    Cons

    Supervision isn't online, on site only (don't know if that has changed, I used to work there back in 2011)
    Cases can be far and gas effective
    Managements needs to step up and listen to TSS
    Poor judgment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the facts first
    Be fair

    Former Employee - Mobile Therapist in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at CcTC (Children's Crisis Treatment Center) as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    experience working with adolescents, and crisis situations.
    most co-workers care deeply about clients and strive to provide therapy/interactions that are safe/healing.

    Cons

    burdensome, work load/environment can lead to "burnout" quickly
    school-based (non-cctc) disciplinary and policy issues.
    lack of boundaries: leaving work at work (must be able to maintain this on own), there is little support & communication from upper tier management, and frequent miscommunication.
    Lack of supervision.
    Compliance with billing requirements cause for restriction of creativity and use of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more communication between "higher ups" and clinicians/STWs
    adherence to the Sanctuary Model is needed, not only in direct care, but in work environment.
    Communication with CBH regarding client termination policies- when working with clients that may/usually have some sort of trauma in their past, finding out that their services were terminated by CBH and having to end services for them that day is not only the opposite of the sanctuary model, it can be re-traumatizing for the client.

    I have been working at CcTC (Children's Crisis Treatment Center)

    Pros

    Lots of job openings and a committed leadership team. Well defined policies and supervision structure. Good location in the city. Good way to get job experience to advance career.

    Cons

    Agency hurt by the recession and has made a number of cutbacks. It is struggling financially, which makes improvements in quality of work unlikely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is not much feedback or guidance I can give. It was a good job and gave me great experience. However, the pay scale was not competitive.
