Pros

The Company is doing great at trying to change things a trauma informed care. T

Cons

Supervisors do not support their employees. Employees are discouraged a lot and they do not get a lot of feedback on the progress that they are making. When their is a problem and an employee goes above that co worker it can cause a lot of issues. There are supervisors who encourage negative talk to both clients and employees

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and make sure that your employees and clients are not being bullied by other staff.

    Pros

    good beginning training for tf-cbt and emdr this year - first time they've paid for training and supplies though. hired a consultant who does monthly supervision.clients can be longer-term.

    Cons

    big quotas. raises stink. paperwork. want you to do family skill instead of therapy because magellan pays more for it. clients are aggressive A LOT. a lot of families don't have the resources to attend family sessions and telehealth isn't statewide. psychiatrist doesn't work with therapists and doesn't attend weekly team meetings to know clients. supervision is only for etp clients.lots of turnover - most therapists plan to leave as soon as they get licensure.

    Advice to Management

    make ma lisw or lmhc a requirement for all program director and above jobs so they understand therapy and treatment needs. listen to therapists complaints and fix the problems.
