Interview Summary

I got to conduct an interview with a CYW that influenced my decision to work to become one. The questions I asked centered mostly on the likes and dislikes of the profession, self-care, and whether it is difficult to leave work at work due to emotions. The likes were being able to grow alongside clients, building our skills in the field while they build their skills for life. The dislikes were knowing a client’s potential, but having to face their stubbornness to overcome the challenge. The CYW’s knows the answer, but we can’t force someone to take the help. The CYW expressed that sometimes because of a client’s unwillingness to make better choices, or trauma that they share, it can be difficult to leave things at the door. Therefore, self-care is super important, because to be the best for clients, we have to also be the best for ourselves.
