Title

Comprehensive Systems: Experience as a Direct Support Staffer

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

The internship I am participating in this spring is through Comprehensive Systems. Part of the direct support staff, I work along coworkers and supervisors to make the living of those with disabilities easier and stress free. With care in my heart, I am intentional with treating the consumers, as well as individuals I work with, with the utmost respect. In the poster I created, I describe working in such an environment, what I learned about myself and other individuals, how to succeed moving forward, and what others can take away if they’d like to have a position like this in the future. I believe this position will give me experience as I move toward my future goals as a Mental Health advocate, and then into Clinical Psychology.
