Sunrise Residential Treatment Center

Clinical Intern/Mentor

April - September 2019 • St. George, UT

What I liked

My coworkers were awesome! My experience here was really fun and very informative. The program is a really awesome one and has the patients's well-being in mind. During my training; my supervisors were understanding and took their time to explain certain work policies and how things were done in the treatment center to me. They even gave me tips on what to look for and how to better take care of myself in case there was a possible traumatic experience. I was also challenged a couple of times and I believe this is what helped me grow. Especially with my leadership skills.

What I wish was different

I wanted to be able to have more time shadowing other professionals aside working as a mentor but it was very limited.

Advice

Do not hesitate to ask questions. Soak up every information you get and talk to everyone! Working in a residential treatment center seems easy but it is challenging. It is also very rewarding and if you are sincere with the work you would enjoy every moment of it. As I did!
