Hi All, I have an MA in Counseling, and am licensed as an LPC (the intern level license) in Illinois. I'm looking for a way to get postgrad supervised hours in a way that will let me avoid doing 100 percent case management and won't get me killed. Let me explain... My last job, with a respected agency in Chicago, had me doing basically had me doing social work case management 100 percent of the time in people's homes with no real therapy, and I had a box cutter pulled on me in addition to another incident where a colleague of mine and myself were put in a position of having to transport a manifestly violent, psychotic client to the hospital. No offense to social workers and case management in general, but I did not sign up for this when I went to school to become a counselor. I want to do therapy in a relatively safe environment, and based on the jobs I actually have gotten (I worked for the same agency before graduating in similar work), I don't know if this is possible. I'm having some post traumatic issues based on what has happened in the past, and don't know if I'm prepared to do 2plus years of this kind of stuff to get fully licensed, and even if I did I would still have no postgraduate therapy experience to speak of when applying to counseling jobs. How in the world does one get therapy jobs postgrad and pre clinical licensure. Does it even happen, or is it an impossible dream?
