Working in our Temple program
At an organization the size of Wood’s Homes, with close to 40 programs in Alberta and the Northwest Territories, we are able to offer our staff the unique ability to work in a number of settings as they hone their clinical skills. The result is that we consider our employees some of the most well-rounded, skilled individuals working in the children’s mental health field.
One such program, our Temple program, with its four locations and diverse client base, encourages staff to think on their feet in a high energy, and highly rewarding environment. Counsellors in this program provide special, creative interventions for young people struggling with mental health, while maintaining a safe, supportive environment for clients.
Manager Kathleen Rhodes says this program truly is a special place for both staff and clients. The struggles can be more serious than many of the agency’s other programs, but this makes the successes all the more meaningful.
