Long story...just got a master's degree...have to get additional hours for my license. Truth be told, drug counseling/prevention is not my top choice of career for when I get my license. But this is where these entry level jobs are for the moment AND I need these additional hours. So.... last year I worked for one year at a DUI Counseling Center. Now, I find myself working at a drug counseling place where people (mostly teens) are court ordered to attend. It would help me A LOT if I could get some input from parents who have brought their children to a place like this. We do group and individual counseling as well as periodic (required) drug testing. So, if you don't mind, here are some questions for those with this type of experience: 1. What helped your difficult child more, as far as you could tell, individual or group counseling? 2. What type of counselor was more effective for your difficult child? (Relaxed, funny, educational, someone with personal experience (drug use), older, younger, etc.) 3. Did the counseling center offer counseling for parents? If not, would you have gone to counseling at the center if they did offer it? 4. Do you think your difficult child never took this counseling seriously? 5. What would you have done differently? What did you like...and/or dislike? MANY MANY THANKS!!!!
