So I’ve had my job as a BT for about 3 weeks now. After many overlaps with a total of 6 Clinical Directors and Program Supervisors (1 of each per client and I have 3 clients total), today, I guess, was my “Observe the fuck outta Fruc day” just because I overlapped with all 6 of them for all my sessions today. It was a very nerve-wracking day today just because it was the first time I was being evaluated by 2 people at the same time for all 3 of my clients. Nevertheless, I was complimented on how well I handle my clients and they even thought I’ve been a therapist for a while now, when in fact, I’ve only done this sort of job for 3 weeks haha.
I just feel great right now because I’ve never gotten so many compliments in one day before unless it was my birthday or I performed or I graduated or something! To know that I’m doing so well in a job position that I don’t think I would’ve ever taken up when I was still an undergrad just warms my heart. I thought this was gonna be one of those thankless jobs, but to receive such great feedback from my superiors (and even the parents!), I guess that was all I needed to reassure myself that I’m in a good place in life right now.
I can only do better from here on out I hope!
PS, now I know what it feels like when I reinforce my clients! Haha!
