Summary

Clinical psychologists deal with a wide range of mental and physical health problems including addiction, anxiety, depression, learning difficulties and relationship issues. We may undertake a clinical assessment to investigate a clients’ situation. There are a variety of methods available including psychometric tests, interviews and direct observation of behavior. Assessment may lead to advice, counselling or therapy

Details about me

Work experience

Jun 2015Sep 2015

Cashier 

Bar Rockolas  (Costa Rica)

My job at Rockolas entailed working at the cash register . My duties ranched from opening the bar , counting the money and closing the bar  (attending to the bar costumer occasionally) . I did not stay in this job for long because I decided to move back to Aruba and I had started with the preparations . Having said this I enjoyed it immensely and made wonderful friends at this post.

Activities Director (Practice / Volunteer)

Centro Gerontologico Curridabat Costa Rica .

As activities Director at this retirement home , I was in charge of opening small pockets of spaces in between the everyday activities  , to where the elderly could  express themselves and be entertained at the same time . This was achieved by playing games , organizing "ball's" (bailes) and implementing art pieces . I must say that I formed close bonds with these wonderful people and they taught more of psychology that any book could.

 Work with parents of children in palliative care  (volunteer)

I volunteered at this institution because I wanted some experience in this very difficult area of psychology . There I was offered a space to implement activities for the parents of the children in palliative care. The idea was to try and let them have some time  to express their feelings in a healthy manor . I did this with music therapy , dance therapy . However to be honest most of the time was spent just lending them an ear or a shoulder to cry on , the reason for this is that so many times they have to be so strong for their loved ones that they themselves forget to express themselves or "let it out" if you will .I must say that this experience was very difficult but enriching in every way.

Volunteer (  orientador )

Napoleon Quesada Costa rica  Highschool 

I volunteered in a High school called Napoleon Quesada. Our mission was to provide a safe space where the children could express themselves , and have time to do there homework and other activities that normally they would not be able to do , due to there living conditions and their monetary situations . All of this work was to impact positively the percentage of high school dropouts . I found this experience to be extremely enriching and it also humbled me to real life situations that we are so commonly blind to .

Waiter 

Private Parties 

I have worked while living on Aruba , and before embarking on my higher education in many events as a waiter , bar tender and busboy . This entailed waiting on tables , attending to guest needs , serving drinks and the general cleanup after the events. I feel that this experience has helped me to learn how to interact better with people and also how to offer better service .
