Things taking a lot of interesting twists and turns.
I may have a job with an agency funded by the city and state as "Youth Specialist." Chances are I do. It is a complete departure from anything I have done professionally but it is moving me along in the "helping professionals" (one of my professors actually used the term) path. I think my T is leery, but supportive. It is working as a supervisor/monitor for juvenile offenders who are opting for the Missouri Method of incarceration. The environment is a home or apartment where six jv's between the ages of 12 and 18 live. It is constantly supervised, because it is, although it is "homey" with no bars, technically incarceration. The reason they want me is that I am studying art therapy and they were impressed with the group activity I came up with on the interview.
As those who know me know, I am now a total wreck. At yesterday's T session I opened up and allowed myself to look into the darkness. It was really hard for me. More train wreck.
Got to run.
